By Brenda B. Covert
  

1     Noah shut the door. The ark was full! All the animals that he needed had come. Animals sat on the floor. They stood by the door. Some of them hid under seats. They were big and small. They were fat and thin. Some had fur. Some had scales. Others had feathers. They all wanted a treat!
 
2     Noah looked at his wife. "Did you pack the animal snacks?"
 
3     "Yes," said his wife. "I packed snacks. How many animals are in here? We need to be fair as we pass out the snacks. I do not want to run out of food!"
 
4     "How true," Noah said. "If a bear does not get his treat, who knows what he might eat!"
 
5     The animals had come in pairs. Noah looked at them. "We will count them by two's. It will save time."
 
6     First came a pair of lions. Two deer came next. Then came two cats, two rats, and two parrots.
 
7     "Two, four, six, eight, ten," Noah counted.
 
8     His wife saw a pair of geese. There were two cows, two pigs, two sheep, and two baby dragons. "Twelve, fourteen, sixteen, eighteen, twenty," she counted.
