With only a week left before the flood's arrival, Noah asks God for help in gathering the animals that need to board the ark. God sends The loveable but clumsy Ziz, giant king of the birds, with a yellow body and red wings. Despite Noah's constant admonitions to proceed carefully, the Ziz unceremoniously gathers pairs of animals and plops them down near the boat. When the smaller animals hide, the Ziz finally learns that completing a project slowly and carefully can yield better results than rushing around. “Children will be drawn into the story by Kahn’s dynamic cover of the green-eyed Ziz…and will enjoy the bold, cartoon-like illustrations she uses to portray his adventures. Parents and teachers can use this as a way to teach young readers about the importance of patience and being careful." - Association of Jewish Libraries “Noah and the Ziz is one of those endearing, charming stories that is just right for young children… The story and brightly colored illustrations are just perfect, and the Ziz is sure to be a favorite with little kids.” –Chicago Jewish Star
