Kindergarten-Grade 2–There was a cold lady who swallowed some snow, then a pipe, then coal, then a hat, and so forth. Written by Lucille Colandro (Scholastic, 2003), this title provides a different look at the old lady who swallowed a fly. Many such take-offs exist, and this is not the best of them. The items swallowed don't have a natural flow or sequence, as in other stories—the bird eating the spider eating the fly, for example. The rhyming is sometimes rather stiff as well, and the finale is quite predictable. That, however, is the book's strength. This is a story teachers will welcome for introducing the fine art of predicting outcomes. There are enough clues along the way that most students will know what's coming, and be delighted in being right when the cold lady hiccups up a snowman. The lively background music and enthusiastic narration by actor Skip Hinnant keep the story skipping merrily along to an unsurprising but fun ending that has a useful curriculum application.–Teresa Bateman, Brigadoon Elementary School, Federal Way, WA

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.
