This is the Christmas version. She swallows bells and holly and stuff and coughs of Christmas, basically.
There is nothing overly redeeming about it. It's got no moral or message or any educational value whatsoever. But it's a fun bedtime book for kids. And there is nothing wrong with a book that's just fun! Anything that encourages kids to read is a good thing!!!
The illustrations are colorful and match the text perfectly. (Oddly I've noticed that's not always the case on kids' books lately. Sometimes the illustrations don't match the story well.)
Overall it's a nice story.
(And as you can see from my reviews, I am on my way to collecting them ALL!!!)
Children love these books too! The rhythm & rhyme adventures truly encourages my readers to read ... And I must say ... these books engage and fill my "struggling-readers" with pride!
Thank You Lucille Colandro for your Magic !!! ( Every Day is a Holiday at my after-school-reading-program. )
I actually bought this book because it was cheaper than the original and I don't regret it one bit. The pictures are fun and colorful (though the lady is a little creepy in my opinion!)
I would totally recommend this to anyone looking to add a fun book to their holiday book collection. (Although, we read this year round!)
To add, when I read this book to my daughter, I actually sing it instead. It's got a great rhythm and my daughter and I both have it memorized so we can sing it without even having the book in hand.
My 7 year old thought it was somewhat funny, but none of my other children liked it. I actually thought it was a little weird and gross, to be honest. The woman swallows coal, sticks, a pipe, a hat, snow, and a scarf. In itself, this isn't an issue (since the woman in the fly book swallows far worse!) but at the end, she basically vomits up all of the contents that then turn into a snowman...it says she hiccups twice, but the illustrations show all of the contents coming back up and out of her mouth, and flying across the page. Three of my children thought she was throwing up. I thought it looked that way too. I really wasn't impressed at all.
