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.

Pleasant, easy-to-read cadence, cute illustrations, and fun book that counts from one to ten. Very traditional feeling and straightforward.

If you have a kid who likes seek & find books and counting things, then the bonus feature is that on every illustration, there are additional characters / elements to be spotted. For example, when you get to the page for "three", the verse is about the three owls... and in the drawing, there are also 3 beetles, 3 acorns, 3 ants, etc. to find and count.
