Ken Geist and Henry Cole team up in WHO'S WHO (Feiwel and Friends, August 2012) which is one of the forthcoming books that uses the pattern from "Over in the Meadow." Here, readers will count monkeys, bats, and hares among other creatures in the bouncy rhythm of the poem. <87>

LITTLE GOBLINS TEN by Pamela Jane with illustrations by Jane Manning (Harper 2012) also utilizes the rhythms and patterns of "Over in the Meadow." This time, though, readers will be counting goblins and mummies and other "monsters." <88>

CREATURE COUNTS by Brenda Haunte with illustrations by Vincent Nguyen (FSG, July 2012) is the third book coming this year to use the patterns of "Over in the Meadow." In this book, the pattern begins with "In a prehistoric meadow..." and introduces readers to all sorts of dinosaurs and their quiet lives in prehistoric times. <89>

B IS FOR BROOKLYN by Selina Alko (Holt/Ottaviano, August 2012) is an alphabet book about bagels and Coney Island and Gowanus Canal, Prospect Park, and more. Some of the history and culture of Brooklyn, NY, is conveyed in the illustrations and the text. <90>

National Geographic Kids (2012) gives readers an interesting alphabet book with AFRICAN ANIMAL ALPHABET by Beverly and Dereck Joubert. Plenty of "Did You Know?" fun facts are scattered throughout the book as well. <91>
