Just like its predecessors, this one does not disappoint. My preschoolers love the books in this series and this will be no different. It will be a great addition to my Valentine's Day books.

My son (13-years-old with Autism) has always adored the "There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed...." books. They were easy reads, good for practicing sequencing and comprehension skills, etc. When I saw "There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed A Rose" in the store the other day I was THRILLED! Unfortunately, on the VERY FIRST page of the story, there is a GLARING editorial error, for ANYONE who is familiar with these stories.....

"There was an old lady who swallowed a rose. I don't why she swallowed a rose"...... there's a MISSING WORD (know). It's an essential part of the story and even my son noticed it!

A little disappointed, but we love the story - it's just that error makes me a little sad. ANYONE who knows the story should be able to notice it.

We're fans of Lucille Colandro's whimsical rhymes - we have the other "old lady" books - and had to have this one too!

If you like the other "There was an old lady...." Books, then you will like this one also.

I actually buy then for myself. I purchased the doll Amazon sells and knit the items (within reason) that go along with the book. When nieces or nephews come over, they read & play.

In this book the items swallowed are a rose, lace, glitter, candy, jewel, hearts, and a card.

Love the rhyming of this book. Keeps children's attention and is easy for the children to remember and read along.

I chose a 4 star rating, because the art work is still engaging and clever. My PreK-K students love the "Old Lady Who Swallowed.." stories. If you are looking for books with a theme you can bring back each month/season, the Old Lady books are fun. This one is a Valentine's Day treat. We sing each story and discuss/re-enforce the fiction and non-fiction concepts each time. The prek and K ages are excited each time I bring out a new book. They ask, "What will she eat now?"

I enjoy this series of books. Mypreschool children like the rhymes and predictable text. These are very cute books. I would buy more.

My first grader took one star off for some "hard words" but he liked the story. I wish you could read it vertically.
