Quotes & Awards

  • “Skip Hinnant is clearly enjoying himself as he reads the rhyming text of this cumulative story. Jaunty music, frequent sound effects, and an occasional giggle accompany Hinnant’s measured pace…The listener can easily join in with the repetitive text as the character swallows increasingly impossible beach discoveries—a shell, a fish, a seagull, sand, and finally a wave—to produce a funny surprise ending.”

Listener Opinions

    " This is another good story for young students learning sequencing. Of all the "There Was An Old Lady" books I'd have to say this is my least favorite because the words and rhythm aren't quite as good and it seems like an add-on book that could've been left unwritten in my opinion. But it. Reinforces the concept so it can be useful. It's still a good book just not as good as the fly and the bat stories. "

    " A great spin off from there was an old lady who swallowed a fly - it's cute too! "

    " A weird little story, as all the "There was an Old Lady..." book are, about a lady who eats odd items. You could use this books to talk to your students about the beach or maybe read before spring break. "
