The Lovereading4Kids comment

Snuggly bears, tumbling tigers, hip-hopping kangaroos, all the baby animals in the jungle come to life in this active and ebullient counting book. Readers will soon be joining in themselves and will especially enjoy the accompanying CD which makes the whole book come vividly to life. A book only edition is also available here.

Synopsis

Over In The Clover with Audio CD by Jan Ormerod

'Over in the forest, in a cave so snug, one cubby bear gives his mummy a hug.' So begins this fun-filled picture book where children will meet busy beavers, tumbling tigers, shuffling warthogs and many more in a count-along rhyme from one to ten that they'll want to join in with again and again! A lively, noisy, funny text that encourages very young children to imitate animal movements as they join in a rhythmical text that takes its inspiration from the well-loved nursery rhyme 'Over in the meadow'. Children will love hugging, digging, rolling, hopping, stretching, flapping and wiggling and, while they're having all this fun, they will also be learning to recognise and count their numbers from 1 to 10. A kind of rebus abacus on the last spread reinforces the counting concept.

About the Author

Jan Ormerod

Jan Ormerod (1946 - 2013) grew up in the fifties, in a series of small towns in Western Australia, with her three older sisters. As a child she drew constantly and compulsively, inspired by beautifully drawn schoolgirl annuals from England and secretly acquired American comics that were forbidden by her parents.

Her books have largely been a celebration and savouring of the positive experience of parenthood she truly had not anticipated–the fun, the warmth, and the love. Jan was acutely aware that picture books are almost always shared by the child and a caring adult.

She published more than 50 picture books in her lifetime, won many honours and awards, and her work is published in more than 20 countries.
