He marvels that, had his uncle bestowed a much larger or a much smaller amount of money upon him, he would better understand the bequest. As it stands, however, he is puzzled and stunned by the legacy of one thousand dollars exactly.
In this appealing and attractive volume, Jan Brueghel's elaborate 1613 painting The Entry of the Animals into Noah's Ark is cleverly transformed into a look-and-find book for children. Twenty-five detailed illustrations prompt eaders to identify different kinds of animals while accompanying text shows the word for each animal in English, French, Spanish, German, Italian, and Japanese. Each word is also spelled out phonetically, so parents can help young readers learn to pronounce the foreign names correctly. A color foldout of the painting in its entirety makes it fun for young readers to locate each animal from Noah's Ark.
