This is like the 'Old Lady Who Swallowed a...' book(s), but way more appropriate for children. There is no talk of dying, and the story is full of different animals and beautiful, vivid illustrations! The ending is pretty cute too...My 5 year old giggled throughout the story and asked for it again the next day.

On a kindle reader, I think it is a waste of money, even at the discounted $2 I paid. Two pages are displayed at a time and it is cropped (in landscape mode) so the artwork, which is the main appeal of a kids book with few words, is small.

Great use of repetition with this unique version of the classic "old lady" rhyme. Art work is precious! Recommended for the young and young at heart!

Being a teacher, I love the Old Lady and the Fly Series. I was familiar with most of the Old Lady book but this one caught my eye. Having not known much about this book, I was a little skeptical buying it. What I know now:
1. I love Jennifer Ward's books.
2. The illustration is wonderful.
3. The rhyming is hilarious and your kids will love this book.
4. This is a great variation to the Old Lady Books!

I read this to my son while riding in the car. The vivid colors and busy pictures keep his attention throughout the whole book. Its kind of fun for Mom to read too.

This time, a monkey in the jungle is the catalyst of this book. As a preschool teacher, I like this book a lot and so do my children. After I read it, they like to play grouptime, read the book and act it out. It's adorable and I like it since I'm A HUGE fan of sing-along stories. I like to read it when we're talking about Jungle animals, but your child will love it all year long. The illustrations are a little over-the-top for me, but after reading a few times, they've grown on me. A must for any preschool-grade 2 teacher or parent.

There Was an Old Monkey Who Swallowed a Frog is a delightful retelling of the Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly song by Jennifer Ward and Steve Gray. I have probably eight thousand retelling's of this story (well that's probably a bit of an exaggeration) and my students have yet to tire of them, sometimes having me read multiple editions in one class period. Needless to say the kids loved this book, laughing at each additional thing that the monkey swallowed. It's a great addition to the collection.

I recommend this book to kids 4-8

My little boy loves her book There Was a Coyote Who Swallowed a Flea - a clever twist on the old classic about the old woman who swallows a fly. I pre-ordered this book thinking it would be just as fun. Unfortunately that wasn't the case. This book was just a repeat and wasn't as clever. Also, the rhyming seemed a little forced in places so that some of the words don't quite fit in the rhyme. My little boy still liked it and likes the new rain forest animals but it's just ok.
