Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 2–There was a cold lady who swallowed some snow, then a pipe, then coal, then a hat, and so forth. Written by Lucille Colandro (Scholastic, 2003), this title provides a different look at the old lady who swallowed a fly. Many such take-offs exist, and this is not the best of them. The items swallowed don't have a natural flow or sequence, as in other stories—the bird eating the spider eating the fly, for example. The rhyming is sometimes rather stiff as well, and the finale is quite predictable. That, however, is the book's strength. This is a story teachers will welcome for introducing the fine art of predicting outcomes. There are enough clues along the way that most students will know what's coming, and be delighted in being right when the cold lady hiccups up a snowman. The lively background music and enthusiastic narration by actor Skip Hinnant keep the story skipping merrily along to an unsurprising but fun ending that has a useful curriculum application.–Teresa Bateman, Brigadoon Elementary School, Federal Way, WA

My kids loved this book!! They are too old for picture books but still think it's funny. We have a collection of several "There Was An Old Lady" books, and this one is the funniest. There is one line that says"There was an old lady who swallowed a scarf. She tried not to barf." That part never fails to crack my kids up!! And the end of the book is really cute. This would make a good Christmas gift for a boy or girl, aged 4-8.

I have a collection of "Old Lady Who Swallowed" books and I was a little disappointed when I read this one. The sequence and rhyming are not as fluent as some of the other books. The ending was cute but this book is not as good as the original "Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly"

Have been reading cumulative tales to children learning English. I really like these because of the repeated lines. This book is very funny and made kids who have never seen snow in their life laugh and laugh months before snow arrived. Terrific ending! Have given this book as a gift!

As fans of the Old Lady Who Swallowed A Fly book, we were eager to try this one, after reading the reviews on here. We were actually pretty disappointed in this, as it simply does not compare to the children's classic.
My 7 year old thought it was somewhat funny, but none of my other children liked it. I actually thought it was a little weird and gross, to be honest. The woman swallows coal, sticks, a pipe, a hat, snow, and a scarf. In itself, this isn't an issue (since the woman in the fly book swallows far worse!) but at the end, she basically vomits up all of the contents that then turn into a snowman...it says she hiccups twice, but the illustrations show all of the contents coming back up and out of her mouth, and flying across the page. Three of my children thought she was throwing up. I thought it looked that way too. I really wasn't impressed at all.

This was rather terrible. It just trailed off. It didn't make sense at all, funny or otherwise. At the end it didn't even rhyme. I'm sorry, it just hit a dead note.

I have begun collecting There was an old lady.... themed books to use with students. This one is one of their favorites because of the alternate ending.. that's a winter suprpise! Great book to read to young and older students.. one line doesn't rhyme that well, but it can also be used as a teaching point.
