A favorite children's song becomes a colorful book filled with African wildlife Also known as "The Green Grass Grew All Around," this popular song has been recorded by artists from Barney to Captain Kangaroo. Now "the prettiest tree that you ever did see" is a lovely acacia tree, where a baby starling is just about to hatch. Rachel Isadora gives children a fun, easy way to follow along with the cumulative lyrics by using rebus icons for the repeated words, as she did with 12 Days of Christmas. Sheet music is also included, making this irresistible fun!
Rachel Isadora received a Caldecott Honor for Ben's Trumpet. She is the author of Say Hello!, Peekaboo Bedtime, and the Lili at Ballet series, and has written and illustrated several classic tales set in Africa, including The Ugly Duckling, Hansel and Gretel, The Twelve Dancing Princesses and The Princess and the Pea. She lives in New York City.
