Overview

This sweet, rhyming counting book introduces young readers to numbers one through fifteen as Grandma’s family and friends fill her tiny house on Brown Street. Neighbors, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, and grandkids crowd into the house and pile it high with treats for a family feast.

But when the walls begin to bulge and no-body has space enough to eat, one clever grandchild knows exactly what to do.

Where there’s a will there’s a way when families grow and come together.

Read an Excerpt

Tiny in size, at the edge of Brown Street, 
sits Grandma's old house, where we all go to meet.

Grandma's house stays small as the family grows.
Will everyone fit inside this time? Who knows?

ONE grandma waits in her big easy chair,
while TWO turkeys send scrumptious smells through the air.

THREE neighbors knock on the brown wooden door,
with FOUR pots of hot greens and ham hocks galore.
