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.

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.
