Over in the Meadow by Louise Voce


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.


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; Full of delightful illustrations. Early Learning
