Ten little Pilgrims and ten little Wampanoag boys and girls are getting ready for the harvest feast. In colonial Plimoth, the Pilgrims hunt ducks and geese and dig up turnips and carrots. In a nearby village, the Wampanoag dig for clams, fish for cod, and gather nuts and berries. Finally it’s time for the meal. First everyone gives thanks, then it’s time to eat and celebrate. The simple rhythmic text and autumn-colored illustrations are just right for practicing counting and sharing the history and fun of Thanksgiving with young children.
