Read. Listen. Sing along.
Over in the meadow…there lives a wonderful array of animals and their young. In the Ozarks in 1882, Katherine Floyd Dana (under the pen name Olive A. Wadsworth) wrote down the words, and Mabel Wood Hill notated the music to be preserved for generations to sing.
“Over in the Meadow” has not only served as a song to teach counting and rhyming, it is also a delightful introduction to the wonderful natural world that we share with our animal friends. Now lavishly illustrated by Marissa Napoletano and collected by John M. Feierabend, this song is sure to delight current and future generations.
A beautiful take on a timeless story, this picture book is another wonderful chapter in the continuing legacy of a delightful, classic songtale.
