I love singing stories to my elementary students in music class. Over time, the students learn the tunes as well and sing with me. They enjoy visuals which is why the thought of musical "story time" is usually a success for me. I own a LOT of these story books, for each season and holiday. The students become incredibly excited when they see we are going to "read-sing" an "There Was An Old Lady..." book!

. . . .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.

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!

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!

Great book. I recommend all the books in this story line of Old Lady. This book is cute, great illustrations, and is fun to read to a child or have them read it to you. Great confidence builder for young readers.

If it is possible this is worse than Swallowed Some Snow? To swallow all the objects to say Trick or Treat is mindless. Then she burps. Imperfect and disgusting ending.IIf disgusting I guess it sells?
