Cute book , really great ending .
A new take on the classic "I Know an Old Lady" rhyme with a winter theme. The cold lady in this story swallows a series of objects that don't seem to make any sense until...well, you'll just have to read to the end to find out! Children will feel a sense of accomplishment when they can predict the rhyming words from knowledge of the classic version, so be sure to read that one first. This will be great for the later preschool/early elementary crowd!
I loved the story.
This picture book is a take on the old song "There was an old lady who swallowed a fly," but misses the point. There was a lady who liked to swallow things, but the reader is never sure why. She swallows sticks, hats, scarves and everything she thinks will keep her warm. The text lacks something, and the illustrations, while technically good, would not be interesting to a potential young reader. The surprise ending of the lady hiccupping up everything that she swallowed into a snowman, leads the reader to believe that the author ran out of things for the lady to swallow and decided to end the book. Not recommended for children who like to experiment with swallowing things.
