Whether gathered as a family, or in a classroom, children and adults can count down the days of Lent aboard an ark with Noah's family and all the animals. Similar to an Advent calendar, this unique, colorful, sturdy construction has windows and doors for each day of Lent and for the Easter celebration. Open one window each day to find Scripture stories that reveal the character and values of the Lenten season.

The story of the great flood—forty days and forty nights—is itself one of the central Lenten stories. A booklet is included with each ark and provides scripture readings, information, and prayer for each day of Lent.
