Two By Two
Written & Illustrated by Barbara Reid. Scholastic Canada
Join Noah and all the animals in this new edition. All aboard!
No ark since Noah’s own has shown such colour and diversity of life as that of Barbara Reid! To save his family from the big flood, Noah builds a boat. It has to be HUGE, because two of every animal are coming to stay… for forty days and forty nights. First in a trickle, then in a flood, animals of every colour and kind make their way into the hold. Bees and boas, camels and cats, every pair finds a place in these pages.
Two by Two has been a classic for 20 years, and it is now available in a chunky board book format for the youngest readers.
