Ben's Book by Nanette Newman


Ben's Book by Nanette Newman

When Ben receives a book for his birthday, he's not sure what to do with it. Should he use it to stand on so he can reach up higher? Perhaps it would make a good tunnel for his cars or a nice new house for his hamster? Each different thing Ben tries just doesn't seem quite right! Until, that is, he shows it to his older sister Lulu, who knows exactly what the book is for.
