This enchanting adaptation of the traditional rhyme “Over in the Meadow? is set on the Canadian prairie. Antelope 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, or 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. Perfect for sharing with young readers at story time or bedtime!
