Format: Paperback
This is a funny and easy-to-read picture book with hilarious illustrations, perfect for the 3-6 year-old in your life. My son and I read this together at least 10 times, and he still remembers it fondly. The one to two sentences per page read with an easy cadence that makes the book flow, very like the original Old Lady story. Great Halloween reading!

THIS BOOK IS REALLY CUTE AND ALWAYS GETS A GOOD LAUGH OUT OF MY DAUGHTER AS WE READ IT TOGETHER. I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK BECAUSE IT IS VERY INTERACTIVE AND IMAGINATIVE.

Format: Paperback
This is a fun story. I teach kindergarten and I love books that are repetitive and have rhythm. The children wanted this story read several times.

. . . .these horrible illustrations, but who I am to question the brilliance of this book. It's kid tested (loves!) and Montessori school recommended. This story, the Halloween edition, is one in a series of "Lady that Swallows Something" books. Drawings and one-note wonder storyline aside, these books teach sequencing and repetition through one woman's insatiable and absurdist appetite. Not exactly a piece of masterful writing, but great for a quick laugh.

My students (ages 3 - 6 with moderate to severe special needs) LOVE these books. I make sure to read (sing) the original version (There was an old lady who swallowed a spider...) several times throughout the year so it stays fresh. I read these theme versions when we are studying something close to it (read this one when we were studying Bats for science). Yes, I DO sing them and encourage participation! Great FUN!!! Collect them all!

Very good book and CD to read to elementary children in the classroom. The book and CD is very interesting and can hold elementary students attention. Halloween is a good time to use this book and cd.

My kids loved this book. I loved the CD. I used it for a listening center in my classroom. The lids were able to follow along with the page turn signals.
