Over in the Meadow
Over in the Meadow is more than a counting poem. Children discover the busy creatures who live in this meadow while they predict how many come next. Emphasize the word that rhymes with the upcoming number: "sticks" prompts "six," "den" before "ten."
Written by 19th century author Olive A. Wadsworth during a time when women writers were not common, she used a made-up, male-sounding name. Her real name was Katherine Floyd Dana. She signed her work "O.A.W." which had a secret meaning: "only a woman."
