This text is another in a series of well-loved books in my classroom. There is a purpose for repetitive patterned text as young children learn to recite fun stories like this, they are building several reading and language skills. Beginning readers first learn the rhythm of the text and recite it. They later put that skill to work by tracking words as they read the text. If you come into many classrooms like mine, you'll never find this series of books on the shelf collecting dust, they are always in students' hands. As for me, a teacher who wants to build a passion for reading in young children that will carry with them over time when they make more complex text selections, I will continue buying every version of this story by this author for my students who love them.
The product is as advertised and no surprise.But really disappointed with the packaging especially because the books were new.All the books in the package was bent and crushed in all four corners.
I am a music teacher, and so usually I enjoy these books because you can sing them to the tune of "There was an old lady who swallowed a fly". I was very disappointed that the author broke poetic meter multiple times during the book. This not only makes for an awful song, but it also makes it awkward to read as well. While I appreciate this series, this is probably the weakest book out of all of them.
I was so disappointed with this book. I bought it for my grandson because my children loved There was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly. This book didn't really make sense and the rhyming and meter were really bad. It was hard to read aloud and impossible to sing.
Love all the old lady books. I have made props for several schools to go along with these books. Made the old lady out of a coffee can with a great big mouth so that the kids can stick the props on while reading the story, Great Fun
I received this book on Sunday and ordered it the Friday before! I can't believe how fast I got the book. It is for my daughter's birthday onSt. Patrick's day and I know she will absolutely love it.
The story is like the others in the way it follows the same formula... So fun. You can almost sing it! Love the togetherness I share with my child as we read. Plus its like hidden treasures throughout the pages. We find things we didn't previously see over and over and laugh at the variations and weirdness. Great Book!
Despite all of the complaints about the rhythm of the book (which just seems like a reach of a complaint for a kid's book), I think this is a super cute book. Works great for showing sequencing, naming items, and lore about St. Patrick's Day. The kids get the hang of it by the end, so even non-readers can participate! Pictures are generally cute and the kids love when she burps out a big ol' rainbow at the end of the book. This item arrived on time and was packaged such that it arrived in perfect condition as well, even though it's only a paperback.
