" Children will find great humor in this classic of an old lad who swallowed a fly then bird then cat! Children will be able to predict what happens next. Great illustrations and rhyming. " said.

" Really not keen on this book, particularly the ending.Having said that, good rhyme and repetition for young children " said.

" This is a classic story with lots of humor. This book offers colorful and engaging illustrations. Young children would enjoy this old classic because of its silly nature. However, it may be a little morbid because...well, the lady who swallows the fly -dies. " said.

" I absolutely loved this book when I was younger and probably would still love it if I were to read it today too. I think this book is just something fun to read with your class to get them involved or just to take some time to have fun throughout the day. " said.

" The children in my class love this book. It increases imagination and creative reading. In between your reading its a good idea to stop and ask questions, allow the children to come up with their own solutions as to why she swallowed the fly. This book also increase listening skills because you can ask what did the old lady swallow first? second? third? " said.

" Awards the book has received (if any): NoneAppropriate grade level(s): Preschool through second gradeOriginal summary: There was an old lady who swallowed a fly... and a spider... and a bird... and a million other crazy things. Original review: This classic repetitious song allows children to play with structure in a new fun way. 1-2 possible in-class uses: This could be used to teach different types of structures of songs or poems. " said.

"Finally!!! I've been hoping to come across a copy of this book, and it happened today. Best of all, it's in almost new condition. There must be dozens of different versions of this same idea, but none of them is better than this. The illustrations that show what's going on inside that silly woman's stomach fascinate the little kids. When the old lady dies (of course), we always agree that this is just a silly story and the lady was always imaginary. No one would ever swallow all of those things!

I suspect that after watching the kids' reaction to the story, I will be changing the rating to 5-stars. We'll see.
" said.

" This book is awesome - we had it at playgroup when I was little and I just found a copy at a yard sale for my 2 year old and she loves it too! " said.
