Around the neighborhood, inside a room full of sun, lived a happy, laughing mother and her little baby, one. “Play,” said the mother. “I play,” said the one. So they played and were glad in the room full of sun.

The popular lullaby “Over in the Meadow” is reimagined in this fun counting book that visits the families in a neighborhood, including a mother and her child, a dog and his puppies, a spider and his spiderlings, and a mallard and her ducklings. Sarah L. Thomson’s lyrical text is paired with Jana Christy’s adorable artwork for a perfect bedtime treat.

“This adaptation of the classic counting rhyme “Over in the Meadow” is set in a bucolic neighborhood environment….The human element is a nice, cozy touch and emphasizes the universality of parent-child relationships.”
