A paperback edition of the beloved counting book set in outport Newfoundland.

Over by the harbour,
In a bog in the sun
Lived an old mother moose
And her little calf one.
"Stomp!" said the mother;
"I stomp!" said the one.
So they ran and they stomped
In a bog in the sun.

A delightful modern adaptation of the classic counting rhyme "Over the Meadow" set in outport Newfoundland and Labrador, Over by the Harbour teaches young readers counting and rhyming skills while also introducing them to some of the province's most iconic animals in their natural habitat ̵ from moose and the Newfoundland dog to puffins and polar bears. With charming verses and beautiful watercolour illustrations, Over the Harbour is a joyful read-aloud for the whole family and a fun counting primer all in one.
