Noah was a good man who obeyed God. But the other people on Earth did not listen to Him.
So, God told Noah to build a big boat called an ark.
When the ark was finished, Noah took two of every kind of animal aboard the ark.
Noah took his whole family aboard the ark. Then, God made it rain.
It rained for 40 days and 40 nights. Water covered the earth. Noah, his family, and all the animals were safe inside the ark.
When the rain stopped, a dove brought Noah an olive branch. This meant that there was land again. Noah knew that it was finally safe to leave the ark.
Noah and his family thanked God when they left the ark. The animals found new homes. God promised never to flood the earth again. He placed a rainbow in the sky to show His promise.
