On the one hand this book is much better than all the endless There was an old lady sequels with the terrible illustrations and unfunny jokes.On the other hand it s hard to read if you don t already know the song by heart Which you probably do.On the one hand my children love this version They would have me read or actually sing this book every single night This is probably one of their top five books.On the other hand I am so sick of it that I would kind of like to set it on fire in the back yard.I think that works out to three stars. This children s classic was one of my niece s favorites We had puppets and all to go with this lovely set that I must have read a million times I wish I could find the set to recommend this particular reading experience The story is fun but the puppets added so much I will keep looking. Thirty Six Years After Publication This Much Loved Classic Is Still As Popular As Ever Ingenious Die Cut Holes Bring This Much Loved Nursery Rhyme To Life, And Pam Adams S Illustrations Lend Humour And Vibrancy To The Proceedings Bouncy Illustrations, Innovative Die Cutting And Popular Rhymes Make Books With Holes A Must For Every Child Available In Three Formats, Suitable For Babies, Toddlers, Pre Schoolers And The Nursery Or ClassroomBook Details Format Board Book Publication Date Pages Reading Level Age And Up As a small child, I found this book incredibly worrying because of its potential influence on young, impressionable children The old lady seemed senile, in my humble opinion, as she found new age, questionable methods to resolve minor ailments that her body was than capable of fixing without aid.I found the rhymes incredibly repetitive and dull, the same way I view song writers that use the same word to make a rhyme e.g If you re one of US Then roll with US I also felt that her reasoning sounded like a poor excuse for binge eating and obesity.In hindsight, I suppose this rhyme is catchy and amusing, but only when I look at it retrospectively as a 20 year old. This story is completely absurd and totally hilarious I really liked the illustrations in this particular book Great read for the kiddos. hahah i love this book Review for There was an old lady who swallowed a fly by Pam AdamsThis is a fun story to read to your class and is most likely aimed for lower key stage one children The story is about a lady who swallows a whole list of animals fly, spider, bird, cat, dog, pig, goat, cow, donkey and a horse The lady keeps swallowing animals to catch the last animal she swallowed The comical element of the story is that the lady dies after she swallows the horse however she should have died after swallowing the bird When telling the story to young children the words can be turned into a song which adds to the enjoyment element The design of the book is also interesting and engaging for younger viewers as there are purposely created holes to see into the ladies tummy and all the animals she has swallowed.I read this book to a class of year one children and there was a lot of laughter throughout the book I strongly feel that this story could motivate children when reading and therefore supports children reading for pleasure. This book tells the story of an old woman who swallowed a fly, spider, bird and a cat This book follows a pattern I know an old lady who swallowed a , which is attractive from the point of view of teaching rhythm and rhyme However this is an extremely basic book, which could be infantile to the advanced Primary 1 child, who would therefore gain little from having this book read to them Thus this book may be suited to the nursery classroom rather than the early primary setting.The book could be used in the classroom to promote recall, rhyme and rhythm talking and listening skills When basic high frequency words are being taught, this book could be used to identify such. 4 art5 song and conceptOh this is just funny The peek a boo pages are especially suited to this song And Squirt just roars with laughter when we sing She swallowed a DOG What a HOG But the end, where she s dead, he cannot accept No she s not And that s that And we play it again. This one is for my mum As a child I giggled and giggled over this book We did funny voices and everything It still makes me laugh out loud today I am just a big kid
