Once upon a prehistoric time . . . One woolly baby trumpets with mother mammoth.Two flying reptiles soar with mom pteranodon.Three toothy kittens snarl with mother sabertooth. Set to the classic counting rhyme “Over in the Meadow,” Brenda Huante’s catchy text makes a perfect read-aloud, and illustrator Vincent Nguyen’s adorable dinosaurs and early mammals are simply irresistible.
