Adapted John Feierabend illustrated by Marissa Napoletano. Great supplement to his First Steps In Music curriculum.
This picture book is one in a series based on beloved children’s folksongs, part of John’s lifelong goal to identify and preserve the best music of our heritage for future generations.
Over in the meadow...there lives a wonderful array of animals and their young. In the Ozarks in 1882, Katherine Floyd Dana (under the pen name Olive A. Wadsworth) wrote down the words, and Mabel Wood Hill notated the music to be preserved for generations to sing.
“Over in the Meadow” has not only served as a song to teach counting and rhyming, it is also a delightful introduction to the wonderful natural world that we share with our animal friends.
Includes a description of the history of the song, the notation of the song, and a link to a free MP3 download of the song (see below).
