About the Book

Countdown to Thanksgiving!

This beautiful picture book 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!

"A refreshing look at an American tradition that reinforces the spirit of the holiday." (Kirkus)
