Noah's Bed by Jim Coplestone


Noah's Bed by Jim Coplestone

It's a stormy night outside the Ark. Little Eber is too frightened to go to sleep so he climbs into Grandpa Noah and Grandma Nora's cosy bed. But why is Eber's hair so tickly, and his toenails so scratchy, and his nose so snuffly, and why does he take up so much room?
