In Over In The Meadow, Ezra Jack Keats adapts a classic nursery rhyme and interjects it with beautiful and unique illustrations. In a typical Keats style, he uses collage and vibrant colors to make the text come to life. ( )

Ezra Jack Keats' mixed-media, collage style illustrations accompany a classic counting nursery rhyme in this book. With beautiful pictures depicting nature and animals, ths focus of this story is very much on the pictures. This is a great book for very young students or those who are learning to count, because they can say the rhymes aloud and participate while the book is being read. A great interactive read aloud book! ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0140565086, Paperback)

Welcome to a lush meadow bustling with activity, where one turtle digs, two fish swim, three bluebirds sing, and so on to ten fireflies that shine in the night. Keats's collage-style illustrations perfectly complement this classic Appalachian counting rhyme, which is also a popular song for toddlers.
