This program presents the traditional Biblical account of Noah's Ark, retold in simple language and illustrated with beautifully coloured drawing. While faithfully following the Bible, the words and pictures emphasize the responsibility of people to care for nature. For example, God's displeasure, which leads to the great flood, comes because people did not care for one another. They did not care for the land that God had made. And they did not care for God
