Synopsis

Over in the Meadow by Louise Voce

The welcome return of an exuberantly illustrated traditional counting rhyme. Ten animal mothers and their babies are having a wonderfully active and noisy time. Two ducklings quack; three owls to-whoo; four mice squeak; five bees buzz; six squirrels jump; seven froggies hop; eight lizards run; nine piglets oink, and ten foxes play in this fun illustrated version of the well-known counting rhyme.

Reviews

Easy to memorize, counting rhymes allow children the pleasure of joining in, and are a great boost to the confidence of beginner readers. Louise Voce's version of Over in the Meadow is just the ticket. Wendy Cope, The Daily Telegraph
