About this title

Synopsis:

A warm rendition of a nature song is based on "Over in the Endangered Meadow" and features such at-risk creatures as the right whale, panda bear, Bengal tiger, Asiatic lion, black-footed ferret, sun conure, and Gila monster.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 3?Eleven endangered animals from many regions of the world care for their young in this numerical rhyming scheme borrowed from the traditional folk song "Over in the Meadow." Rogers utilizes lyrics she has previously recorded, framing them with opening and closing scenes featuring several children and their grandparents. "'Sing!' said my grandpa. 'Let's sing!' said we./And this is what we sang upon my grandpa's knee." Double-page views go on to feature right whales in the north Atlantic Ocean, pandas far away in China, Bengal tigers in the Bangladeshi jungles, several more mammals, rain forest birds, and assorted reptiles. Mathis's simple, folk-style creatures are handsomely grouped in deep-hued, framed paintings. The animals all appear in a quilt grandmother is sewing in the opening scene, and the quilt also serves as rich endpapers. Concluding factual notes on each of the animals expand the simple lesson on caring for the Earth and its creatures, and the music for the song appears on the back of the book jacket. The thrust is both unabashedly didactic and appealing.?Margaret Bush, Simmons College, Boston
