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.

I love that this book flips the script - too often, kids are made to feel that their existence is somehow, less than. This book is a subtle reminder to not accept that myth.
