Over In The Meadow by Louise Voce
A lively, amusing version of a classic counting rhyme.;Over in the meadow in the sand in the sun lived an old mother turtle and her little turtle One. "Dig," said his mother. "I dig," said the One. So he dug all day in the sand in the sun.;So begins this entertaining counting rhyme, in which ten animal mothers and their babies have an active and noisy time. Two ducklings quack, three owls to-whoo, four mice squeak, five bees buzz, six squirrels jump, seven froggies hop, eight lizards run, nine piglets oink and ten foxes play.;Louise Voce's work has featured regularly in the " Association of Illustrators Annual" and Exhibition, and she has also illustrated "Hello, Goodbye" and "The Owl and the Pussycat".
