Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2—The Old Woman Who Lived in a Shoe gets her own book in this expanded version of the familiar nursery rhyme. The harried mother, fed up with her cramped living quarters, packs up her six children, the family cow, and other pets, and they set off to find a roomier abode. Although they are small enough to fall out of a hole in a shirt pocket and are dwarfed by a field rat, they have no luck until a kind giant (actually a little girl) allows them to live in her dollhouse. The folksy illustrations follow the tiny family of freckled redheads as they wander gamely along clotheslines, through mud puddles, and past oversize bluebells in search of the perfect home. Told in rhyming couplets, the story holds no big surprises, but is a pleasant enough read.—Martha Simpson, Stratford Library Association, CT
