About the Author:

Laura Krauss Melmed is author of Capital! Washington D.C. from A to Z and New York, New York! The Big Apple from A to Z, also illustrated by Frané Lessac; I Love You As Much . . . , illustrated by Henri Sorensen; and the critically acclaimed The Rainbabies, illustrated by Jim LaMarche. She lives with her husband in Washington, D.C.



Marl Buehner has six little pilgrims of his own in Salt Lake City, Utah, where he lives with his wife, Caralyn, and their children: Heidi, Grant, Sarah, Samuel, Laura, and Jake. Mark has illustrated many wonderful children's books, including I Am the Cat by Alice Schertle and Harvy Potter's Balloon Farm by Jerdine Nolen.

From Booklist:

Ages 5-8. Gaggles of round-faced children, some in Pilgrim outfits and others in deerskins, fill this rhymed counting tale, along with an inquisitive turkey and a fair number of bunnies. It must be said that the rhymes are clunky, but the cheer is fairly irrepressible as 1 Pilgrim boy naps in a tree, while 2 Wampanoag kids giggle as they gather nuts. And so it goes, ending with the 12 harvest tables laden with food for both Pilgrims and Indians. In each spread, a careful look reveals the turkey peering from behind a tree, rock, or outcropping; even in the final feast, he's sticking his neck out from behind a cabin. The bunnies are everywhere: hiding behind tree trunks when the Wampanoag kids go out with bows and arrows, watching (alongside the turkey) as 10 Wampanoag youngsters make baskets, gamboling among the cornstalks while 9 young Pilgrims pick corn.
