Over in the Meadow

by Olive A. Wadsworth Illustrated by David A. Carter

The vivid colors of Caldecott Medal-winning artist Ezra Jack Keats combined with this classic Appalachian counting rhyme will have young readers counting and recounting their way across the meadow, from turtles to fire flies, from one to ten.

"Caldecott Medal-winning Ezra Jack Keats provides fresh, appealing illustrations... Should definitely be included in public and school library collections." — Library Journal
