Nothing stops Noah

In this picture book, we meet Noah, a thoughtful young boy who wants to buy a present for his mom. Hey, can't buy a present with no money, so Noah calls up his grandpa and asks for a job at his pet store. Grandpa hires him based on his qualifications-he could count. But Noah forgot to mention he could only count to ten. Based on Noah's miscount on the rawhide bones, grandpa thinks he's nearly out and rushes out to buy more, leaving Noah in charge of the animals. Oh my. Noah gets in over his head when the animals all get loose. But since nothing stops Noah, he somehow manages to pull it all together before Grandpa gets back.
This is a cute story, and the loud and colorful illustrations on every page give the book a zany feel. The story itself is just right for your little ones who might be just starting to read, and for those who would like to read a fun tale about a boy who doesn't let even the most crazy of circumstances damper his day!
