Mixed media art transports readers to the rolling grasslands of Badlands National Park. Learn about the animals that inhabit this semiarid environment where baby critters and their mothers wallow, run, call, bark, hop, scurry, nod, slither, howl, and jump all day long and all through the night.
Count animals from one to ten in the rhyming text modeled after the traditional song "Over in the Meadow" by Olive A. Wadsworth. A guide to prairie flora and fauna is included.
Susan Swan is the illustrator of many books for children that celebrate the season, including Out on the Prairie, Sugar White Snow and Evergreens, and When Autumn Falls. She lives in Texas.
