Description

Countdown to Thanksgiving!

This rollicking counting story celebrates the very first Thanksgiving Day with vibrant illustrations and lively verse. Follow the Pilgrim and Wampanoag friends as they prepare for a great feast, and along the way look for the bold turkey on every page -- and for the very sharp of eye, there are all sorts of surprises hidden in the art!
