An enchanting adaptation of the traditional rhyme "Over in the Meadow" set on the Canadian prairie. Out on the prairie, in the warm spring sun, Lived a mother antelope and her young fawn one. "Leap!" said the mother. "I leap!" said the one, And it leaped and it played in the warm spring sun. Nominated for the 2003 Shining Willow Award, the ultimate Canadian prairie counting book is now available in paperback.Antelopes play, badgers bask in the sun, meadowlarks sing, and deer mice make their nest of twine against a backdrop of the dramatic landscape of the prairie. Beautiful illustrations combine with flowing lyrics to inspire children to sing, read, and count their way across the Canadian landscape. This sweet, heartwarming book includes information about each animal plus music, so families can sing the familiar tune.
