A message of peacethe most welcome news of all. Tara is a dove. Before the flood, she brought messages back and forth between Noah and his family. Now she is confined to the small loft that Noah's grandson has built under the roof of the ark. For forty days and nights, Tara sits patiently in her loft, while outside thunder booms and rain pours down. One day Noah's grandson comes with a basket to take Tara to the deck of the arc. It's time for her to be a messenger bird again. If Tara returns to the arc, it will mean that Noah's house is still under water. If Tara doesn't return, it means she is waiting at home for the return of Noah and his family. Ruth Eitzen's gentle retelling of Noah, with endearing illustrations by Allan Eitzen, is perfect for young children."
