Book Description

1 Mar 2012
This traditional rhyming tale takes children on a counting journey through Jill McDonald s colourful meadow scenes meeting a variety of busy animal families along the way. Children will relish the vivid descriptions of the animals and their activities from a bumpy mother toad and her baby basking in the sun to a hairy mother spider and her ten children spinning webs in a den. About this title: Includes a dual-purpose audio and video CD to listen to the singalong on a CD player or listen and watch the video animation on a Mac or PC. Evocative descriptions, charming characters and repetition of words and numbers create an exciting and satisfying rhyming story. Counting the baby animals encourages numeracy skills

I bought this because we have other music singalong books with the voice of Susan Reed and I think her voice is very pleasant for both child and adult. I find it hard to come across music of a nursery ryhme style that isn't too grating, or over the top.

Over in the Meadow was not a song I'd encountered before, only as a poem written slightly differently in an American poem/story book whch we own, and my eldest toddler is always requesting that particular poem, so I thought this would go down well. I did not realise at first that the book and CD are just about the one song, I initially thought it was a collection of songs on book and CD with 'Over in the Meadow' being the main focus. I'd never usually pay near 10 for so little, but the whole package is of exceptional quality. It is in fact just the one song with a new verse on each page of the book, and a CD with the one song on it, but the pictures are drawn beautifully and spark question and intrigue, and the CD has both a sung version of the song and an acoustic version afterward, so this added to its worth.

A great tool for parents, babysitters or child carers and so on to sing along to and get the children to join in with. My boys enjoy this with or without the book, and sometimes as the music is so cheerful I stick it on repeat a few times while they are playing or colouring in etc. My eldest who loves to sing (2 and a half) is now coming out with the lyrics every now and then, and of course the nature of the song (going from one to ten) makes it a handy counting tool for my youngest too.

Over all, I have to give it five stars, although I'm sure if it were anyone else other than Susan Reed I would have given a 3 or 4.

I bought this book for my son who has autism. He loves books with singing and this one does not disappoint. It has great illustrations and has a really nice tune and pleasant singing. Highly recommend. You can view animated version on you tube.

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
We were already familiar with this song but my little girl absolutely loves the fact you can sing along to the CD with pictures too. This book is a firm favourite and has remained so for a long while now. The artwork is superb too.
