Barefoot Books – Over in the Meadow (Singalong Book + CD)
This traditional rhyming tale takes children on a counting journey through Jill McDonald s colourful meadow scenes meeting a variety of busy animal families along the way. Children will relish the vivid descriptions of the animals and their activities from a bumpy mother toad and her baby basking in the sun to a hairy mother spider and her ten children spinning webs in a den. About this title: Includes a dual-purpose audio and video CD to listen to the singalong on a CD player or listen and watch the video animation on a Mac or PC. Evocative descriptions, charming characters and repetition of words and numbers create an exciting and satisfying rhyming story. Counting the baby animals encourages numeracy skills.
