Item description for Over in the Meadow: A Counting Rhyme by Olive A. Wadsworth, Katharine Floyd Dana & A. Vojtech...

In the sweet illustrations that depict a sun-drenched meadow filled with loving animal families children can find and count not only the animal babies, but background details that also correspond to the numbers in the classic song.

Publishers Description
""Over in the Meadow
in the sand in the sun
Lived an old mother turtle
and her little turtle one.""
So begins this classic nursery poem, written by Olive A Wadsworth in the late 19th century, a favorite counting rhyme for generations of children. Anna Vojtech's sweet illustrations depict a sun-drenched meadow filled with loving animal families-from mother turtle with her one baby to ten little beavers embraced by their doting mother. There are lots to count in the cleverly designed pictures, and sharp-eyed youngsters will delight in finding a corresponding number of background details on each spread.

Reviews - What do customers think about Over in the Meadow?

On Its Second Generation in My Family....  May 10, 2008
My mother read this book to me as a child. While I don't personally remember it, my mother certainly does. Once I had my own children, my mother would often quote the first verse of this book to them, in sing-song fashion, even though it had been years since she'd read the book. So, last year, I finally got this book for my children (four under 7).

As you can see from the excerpt of the first verse in the editorial review above, this book is very rhythmic and sing-song in fashion, which children, of course love. But, it's an enjoyable read for me as well, unlike some children's books that I dread to get out. Each page spread has a different mother animal with her babies (1 more each time). The pictures of the animals are also quite attractive. My only peeve is that in the final verse the mother and little beavers ten "beave," whatever that means. Would have been nice if some other word, and if necessary, another animal had been used.

This may be a small thing to some, but if you remove the dust jacket, the hardcover book has the same attractive cover. I love this! I hate dustjackets because of tearing, but I love hardcover books for durability. I love it when hardcover books (especially children's books) also have the "real cover" on the book itself.

I highly recommend this book as a read-aloud to anyone with young children.
Wonderful story, pictures, rhymes  Mar 29, 2003
This is one of those sweet, gentle books that a child will remember for years to come. The pictures are beautiful, the rhymes almost lyrical and on top of it all, it teaches counting. It's especially fun when the child realizes that other animals in the picture also add up to the same number as the main animal (5 ladybugs, 5 leaves, 5 stones, etc.). My little boy has requested this book consistently for the past year and he's almost 4. Something we'll save for his children.
Cute Little Animals  Feb 26, 2003
This is my 3 year old daughter's favorite book. I read er, sing it to her several times a day. Each page is like a new treat, this book is beautifully illustrated. Each page has a certain number of animals, and the same number of other things for your child to find. On the four little rattie's page, there are 4 baby rats(which are adorable), there are also 4 ears of corn, 4 chickens, etc. It has been extrememly helpful for counting practice. Before my daughter knew the name of the book she called it the cute little animal book. After a month, this book still has top honor on my kids' bookshelf, with the fickleness of my children, that is saying a lot.
