9 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Mathew A. Shember VINE VOICE on December 24, 2006
Format: Hardcover
My daughter picked this one. It's a cute little story about a little old lady that swallows items. A bell, bows, gifts, sack, a sleigh, and reindeer.

She then decides to finish it off with a peppermint cane but hears Santa coming so she whistles and out comes Santa's sleigh all packed and ready to go.

Eating the reindeer bothered my girl for a moment so be aware. However, if you make fun of it (as I did). The Reindeer are dressed in WWI pilot gear so it's easy.

The story rhymes well so you can get a good rhythm going.

The art is well done to the point of a little goofy so children should like it.

We are going to look into the old woman who swallowed a bat next

My kids, age 3-7, all love this book! It is a special favorite of my 6-year-old son. The funny theme and easy rhyme have encouraged him to read even more. He can't wait for "There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Chick" to come out!

My kids are hooked on the "Old Lady" books. We haven't been disappointed yet. They loved this one even more than the others.

There are a series of these "Old lady swallowed..." books. This one is exactly the same as all the others. An old lady swallows a bunch of parts, then coughs up something more complete.

This is the Christmas version. She swallows bells and holly and stuff and coughs of Christmas, basically.

There is nothing overly redeeming about it. It's got no moral or message or any educational value whatsoever. But it's a fun bedtime book for kids. And there is nothing wrong with a book that's just fun! Anything that encourages kids to read is a good thing!!!

The illustrations are colorful and match the text perfectly. (Oddly I've noticed that's not always the case on kids' books lately. Sometimes the illustrations don't match the story well.)

Overall it's a nice story.
