Jan Brueghel's elaborate 1613 painting entitled "The Entry of the Animals into Noah's Ark" is cleverly transformed into this look-and-find book for children. Twenty-five detailed illustrations prompt children 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 spelled phonetically, so parents can help children learn how 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.

About the Artist:|Jan Brueghel the Elder (1568-1625), the preeminent seventeenth-century Dutch painter, painted The Entry of the Animals into Noah's Ark in 1613. It is considered one of his most important works.
