Description

One, two, three-- count-along with this bright, bold rendition of a classic song, from read-along master Jane Cabrera!

Animal moms and their babies learn and play together on a beautiful day over in the meadow. But each family is a different size. Can you number them all?

Perfect for going over numbers and counting with very young readers, this colorful reinvention of Over in the Meadow includes several spreads to sum up all the count-able animals in easy-to-read groupings. Jane Cabrera's uniquely textured art and whimsical lyrics will have readers singing and counting along in story hours, or one-on-one settings. A fun way to bring learning home!

Cabrera's picture books have received worldwide attention and two Oppenheim Toy Portfolio awards. Her colorful twists on traditional nursery rhymes are perfect for both teachers and parents hoping to engage toddlers in the act of reading.
