I would "sing read" all of the "There Was an Old Lady..." stories in my general music classroom. It was a favorite amongst all of my grades...especially my lower elementary students. They always knew when a holiday or new season was approaching, I would pull one of these out. They would sing it with me!
My students absolutely love Lucille Colandro's series of books. They can't wait to see what the Old Lady spits out at the end. Highly recommend getting all of them. Great to read around Easter/Spring Time.
We read this book for Easter at our family party and my husband even listened along! My nieces and daughters fed an old lady the corresponding items while I read the book and they absolutely loved it! You can make these things yourself or just use a basket to let the kiddos take turns putting items in. This book has repetition of sequential events that builds up to the end.
I read this book over the Easter Weekend on Steam Into History train in New Freedom, PA. The train was holding it's Easter Bunny Run. The book really helped to bring the families and children together. Thanks for sending the book so promptly.
If you're looking for a fun, nonsensical story to brighten your day or make your kids laugh, this will do the trick. Yes, she does grossly cough up an Easter basket, but sometimes kids are engrossed by gross and they need to let off some steam and be silly once in a while. What kid hasn't spewed once in a while? This old lady helps them do that. The story is a clever idea of an Easter story, and takes nothing away from the Easter bunny.
I used this for story time at an Easter activity for children ages 3-12 and they all loved it. Even the adults present got a good laugh. We have enjoyed all of the There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed stories. My daughter was first introduced to them by her school teacher. She said they are some of the classrooms favorite books.
Excellent book. The repetition assist learners of all ages. Illustrations will allow even a non-reader to tell the story building their confidence. I also recommend the other books titled There was an Old Lady who Swallowed a Fly and the one where she swallows a bat.
My daughter (6) loves this series and it's fun to find more books to see what else the little old lady swallowed. She knows they will be funny and will be surprising so she likes to read and share it with her classmates.
