Picture Book Review: Noah’s Seal

Noah's Seal by Layn Marlow

Noah’s Seal
by Layn Marlow (Goodreads Author)
5 out of 5 stars

Noah wants to go sailing to look for seals, but Nana says that she has to repair the boat. While he waits, Noah crafts a seal out of sand, putting in pebbles and seaweed for the eyes and mouth. A storm sweeps in, and Nana and Noah have to take shelter. When the storm is over, Noah’s sand seal is gone! Will he ever see his seal again?

I loved this sweet book! The ending is so emotional and clever. Noah is such a cute little guy with a big imagination. I love that his Nana is kind and understanding. They have a special relationship.

The illustrations are beautiful! Every scene has these wide sweeping skies and the sparkling waves of the sea. The art really shows the ferocity of the storm with raging purple clouds. The character design of Noah and Nana is adorable too. They are so expressive and fun! Even the endpapers have beautiful artwork on them.
