Over in the Meadow may be one of my favorite read-alouds to our 14 month old right now. In case you’re not familiar with the nursery rhyme, here’s a YouTube video of the tune. Over in the Meadow dates all the way back to the 16th century, and the illustrations in this book are wonderfully nostalgic.
She’s too young for this now, but in a year or so I plan on buying the Audible versions of several children’s books and allowing her to flip through the pages herself while listening to the audio. This book will definitely be on that list, along with the illustrator’s other award-winning book, Frog Went A-Courtin.
