For My Honeybees Five

Ever since Twinkle Toes pulled out Over in the Meadow, to point out the Honeybees during "H" Week, my children have been singing this song. They were so excited when I ran across this music video with the same illustrations as their book.

... Over in the meadow,
In a new little hive
Lived an old mother Queen bee
And her honeybees five
"Hum!" said the mother;
"We hum!" said the five
So they hummed and were glad
In their new little hive...


  1. This was one of my Sunshine's favorite songs when she was little! Thanks for sharing!

  2. I love that book! We recently had it from the library (I really need to purchase a copy for our home library). Right now we have one in our library basket that is "Over in the garden" and it follows the same song. Also, very cute!

  3. Thanks for the video!! We too have that version of the book and its one of our favorites. I can't wait to show my children the sweet video.

  4. This is one of our favorites around here too. Our version has different lyrics though. I'm not sure where we even learned our version!
