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.
