Lived an old mother turtle

and her little turtle one.

There are lots to count in the cleverly designed pictures, and sharp-eyed youngsters will delight in finding a corresponding number of background details on each spread.

Cute book with cute animal illustrations! I used to sing this book to my baby brother and he'd make me read it (sing it) over and over again! I scoured the internet for this book 20 years later for my friends son and this was the one I decided on because the artwork looked the best.
My only criticism is that my version as a kid had the beaver's saying 'Build" and not "Beave said the mother. We beave!" said the babies. It seems odd since it's not a verb, but it's a counting and rhyming book so I don't think that part is really going to impact your child's vocabulary. You can always just say "build" when you get to that part I suppose....
Anyway, cutest illustrations I could find in a current edition of this book on Amazon! I recommend it!

Excellent! A family favorite from when my children were young. We enjoyed it so much that 20 yrs later we can all still recite it start to finish without opening the book. I bought this one for my first grandchild and even though it's not the same publisher as our original, the rhyme is the same and these illustrations will immediately become the favorites for our next generation. Buy this book and read it to your children! You'll all be very happy with it!

A beautiful classic I read to my children and I now have purchased for them to read to their children. The illustrations are bewitching, the rhymes mesmorizing. You can't go wrong with this one. It's a must-have.

My mother read this book to me as a child. While I don't personally remember it, my mother certainly does. Once I had my own children, my mother would often quote the first verse of this book to them, in sing-song fashion, even though it had been years since she'd read the book. So, last year, I finally got this book for my children (four under 7).

As you can see from the excerpt of the first verse in the editorial review above, this book is very rhythmic and sing-song in fashion, which children, of course love. But, it's an enjoyable read for me as well, unlike some children's books that I dread to get out. Each page spread has a different mother animal with her babies (1 more each time). The pictures of the animals are also quite attractive. My only peeve is that in the final verse the mother and little beavers ten "beave," whatever that means. Would have been nice if some other word, and if necessary, another animal had been used.

This may be a small thing to some, but if you remove the dust jacket, the hardcover book has the same attractive cover. I love this! I hate dustjackets because of tearing, but I love hardcover books for durability. I love it when hardcover books (especially children's books) also have the "real cover" on the book itself.

I highly recommend this book as a read-aloud to anyone with young children.

This is a fantastic book for very young elementary students, particularly for singing the poem to them. They pick up on the counting patterns quickly, and enjoy the pictures a lot.

I do wish it was a bit bigger, however the item is exactly as described so I cannot fault them for that.

This book is a joy to read! After seeing it on the Dolly Parton's imagination library book list we borrowed it from our local library. One read and I new it was a gem. No only did we buy our own copy, but I have I started giving copies to everyone we know. My husband's absolute favorite kids book. The poetry is so beautiful it is practically sing-songy.

My father used to read this to me when I was a little girl, and his mother read it to him. So I bought this book out of nostalgia for my little ones - they are not even born yet! (Twins, due in July!)
Reading this book brings back wonderful childhood memories and I hope my kids will feel the same one day.
The rhythmic cadence of the poem make this an easy read,and the illustrations are beautiful and helpful in learning to count!
I bought this for my granddaughter's first Christmas as I love the song. But, when I got to ten and it said "Beave" said the mother (beaver) "We beave." said the ten that was just too much. Really?? Beave?? I'm looking for another copy of "Over In The Meadow." I'm very disappointed.
