""Over in the Meadow
in the sand in the sun
Lived an old mother turtle
and her little turtle one.""
So begins this classic nursery poem, written by Olive A Wadsworth in the late 19th century, a favorite counting rhyme for generations of children. Anna Vojtech's sweet illustrations depict a sun-drenched meadow filled with loving animal families-from mother turtle with her one baby to ten little beavers embraced by their doting mother. There are lots to count in the cleverly designed pictures, and sharp-eyed youngsters will delight in finding a corresponding number of background details on each spread.

Pleasant, easy-to-read cadence, cute illustrations, and fun book that counts from one to ten. Very traditional feeling and straightforward.

If you have a kid who likes seek & find books and counting things, then the bonus feature is that on every illustration, there are additional characters / elements to be spotted. For example, when you get to the page for "three", the verse is about the three owls... and in the drawing, there are also 3 beetles, 3 acorns, 3 ants, etc. to find and count.
