An Old Testament Tale With a Kid-Friendly Twist!

Combine the tale of Noah's Ark from the book of Genesis with the wit and rhyme of Dr. Seuss and you get Hold the Boat!, a humorous picture book from Bethany Backyard. As a parent or grandparent, you'll love reading this to your young one and will enjoy the whimsical retelling of a story you've known for years. Discussion starters are included at the end for you to explain and explore the lesson of the story with your son, daughter, or grandchild. You need not be young just young at heart to fall for the delightful poetry of Hold the Boat!, and the vibrant, zany watercolors of artist Joy Allen.

Hold the Boat! effectively brings to life the message that God offers salvation to anyone who believes through a humorous "what if" retelling of an Old Testament favorite. Following the antics of a little boy who hears Noah's warning about the flood and believes, the book is about his search to find a way onto the boat. Unsure that the message is meant for his ears, he thinks sneaking on as an animal might be the best idea.

Disguising himself as different animals everything from a porcupine to a giraffe leads to some very silly results, especially when Noah catches him in the act! Hold the Boat! offers a fresh look at God's grace that will have a lasting, laughing effect on kids of all ages.

While other people laugh at Noah's prediction of a coming flood, a young boy believes and tries to sneak aboard the ark by disguising himself as different animals.
