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 digital artwork for a perfect bedtime treat.

From Booklist:

This adaptation of the classic counting rhyme Over in the Meadow is set in a bucolic neighborhood environment. Opening with Around the neighborhood, / inside a room full of sun, / lived a happy, laughing mother / and her little baby one, the stanzas proceed through various outdoor settings and feature different parent-baby animals, which increase in number by spread. For instance, there’s an old father hound dog with his little puppies two and an old mother ladybug and her little beetles five. The counting doesn’t end with 10, but returns to the now-tired mother and little baby one, who is sound asleep. Christy’s digitally rendered, brightly colored illustrations are evocative and soothing. While the rhymes and rhythms are occasionally awkward, the human element is a nice, cozy touch and emphasizes the universality of parent-child relationships. On the final spread, there are 10 small vignettes featuring the animals, thereby reinforcing the numbers lesson. An appended author’s note gives background on the original song and musical notation. Preschool-Grade 2. --Shelle Rosenfeld
