The big flood
from Genesis chapter 6 verse 17

to chapter 8 verse 12)




After seven days it began to rain.

It rained and rained.  There was a big flood.

Noah’s boat sailed on the water.

There was so much water that

it came up to the top of the mountains.

All the people and animals on earth died.

But God saved Noah and his family.

They were safe in the big boat.


It rained for a long time.

One day the rain stopped.

Noah opened the window.

A bird flew away.  Soon the bird came back.

It had a leaf in its beak.

Then Noah knew the flood was going.

He could see land and trees again.


Soon the land was dry.  Noah opened the door.

God told Noah to get out of the boat.

God had saved Noah.

Noah was very happy.  He thanked God.

He gave God a present.

God was very pleased.

He blessed Noah and his family.
