Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Heather Torgersen | 2/8/2014

    " This story is the fall spinoff to There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed A Fly. In this version, the Old Lady swallows leaves, a pumpkin, rope, hay, a shirt, pants, and a tall stick, and eventually throws up a scare crow. I never really like the endings when she regurgitates everything back up, but children always love that gross factor. This story is great when teaching sequential order in math, and you can also associate ordinal numbers to the objects once you have them in order. This book always make a wonderful large group lesson if you make an Old Lady prop where she can swallow the items! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Madison | 2/8/2014

    " I used this book for fluency with my interevention student. I think it was great for fluency becasue the story was repetitive and had a good flow. This would help the child become more fluent by reading the same words over and over again. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sha-Quita Jordan | 2/8/2014

    " This would be a great book to read during the fall! I would read it to first-third grade! Also I could make a big prop to go along with it! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Datoria | 1/29/2014

    " I love this book. Good for sequencing and for fun. Has rhyming and and a great funny ending. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Scarlett Sims | 1/28/2014

    " So, what I can say in this book's favor is that the kids LOVED IT! One of the kids brought it in to read during storytime and they loved the illustrations and laughed at almost every page, especially the ending. My problems with it are typical adult problems. I thought the rhymes were pretty contrived and wasn't crazy about the illustrations. Also, being an adult I'm not a huge fan of repetition but I knew going in that would be a part of the book and that isn't what made me not like it. I'm just sure there are better books like this out there, whether autumn stories or rhymey-wimey humor or swallowing-based stories. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jessica | 1/15/2014

    " This is a fun fall book that follows other "Old Lady" books. The book is sequencing and helps students work on listening and memorization skills. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Puja Patel | 12/30/2013

    " This is a great book to read to the class in the Fall time. It is a funny book about an old lady who swallows things to make a scarecrow and at the end she sneezes and everything comes out. This book is also great to read while learning about rhyming words. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah | 12/29/2013

    " Great for teaching cause and effect, inferences, and rhymes. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Violet | 12/27/2013

    " This is a Spin-off of There was an old lady who swallowed a fly. If you are looking for a fall book, this is a great one to use, the kids love it and it is a repeating rhyme, so kiddos will be able to follow along with you! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Savannah | 12/26/2013

    " A good book you could use to talk about the season of fall. The lady creates a scarecrow from the things she eats so it also could be good to read before a field trip to a farm. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Danielle Strickland | 12/18/2013

    " Cute cute story! Would be great to have students go and resequence the order of the things she swallowed. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melanie | 12/14/2013

    " Another great "old lady" book. This time she swallows leaves, a shirt, pants, a pumpkin and a pole. Hmmm...I wonder what for? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Claudia | 12/11/2013

    " This is a great book for teaching sequencing and imaging. The students could reinact this story and make different literacy centered art projects. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marta Scholl | 12/2/2013

    " This is a great book for a fall theme. My 5 year old niece was able to read it to me because she loved it so much she memorized all the words! A neat take on an old favorite. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Teri | 8/19/2013

    " Not at all great in my opinion, but my 4-year old loved to read it (guided reading) to me. I think the repetitiveness and the song's melody, was really great for a beginning reader. She loved it! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 John | 11/25/2012

    " Not nearly as good as "swallowed a fly," but still fun. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Margaret | 11/7/2012

    " This fall version of the old lady who swallowed things is a great book for teaching students what they can see in the fall. Also the repetition is great, because students can read along and make predictions as to what is going to happen next. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mekia | 8/22/2012

    " simliar to the original version and it's a great book to read during fall "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rachel | 8/9/2012

    " Nice language use on the same formula, but this swallowing to sneeze it all back up into something is just to odd. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cheree Aubut | 8/2/2012

    " Great fun as an autumn read aloud! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elizabeth | 3/17/2012

    " I really liked this book. It is a spin off of "there was an old lady who swallowed a fly."It is great for the fall seasons to read to children. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amanda | 2/7/2012

    " I always loved these books when I was young. It is fun to see the Lisa's reactions to all of the silly things the old lady swallows. I like having ones for different seasons. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Murlene | 12/19/2011

    " Great book to explore the fall season. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Becca Dunlap | 12/7/2011

    " The crazy old lady swallows leaves, a stick, pants, shirt, and more. At the end she sneezes a great sneeze and the contents of her belly make something "surprising." Young students will have a blast reading and predicting how this crazy tale will end! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carman | 11/29/2011

    " This book has an old lady making a scarecrow in a very intersting way. The is repetition in the story which makes it easy for kids to participate. One could also use this book for sequencing from pre-kindergarten to second grade. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kristy | 10/10/2011

    " Yep...it was just as bad as There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed A Bat. Lame, stupid, pointless, and poor illustrations. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tanika | 4/17/2011

    " This is a funny story because an old lady swallowed so many items. Their is a great use of repetition in the story for children to read. It’s a good alternative to use for students who don’t celebrate Halloween and they get to see all of the fall leaves. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Murlene | 4/16/2011

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Matthew | 1/25/2011

    " This book was a fun read. I can see it being a great book to teach repetition and is a great book for a unit in the fall time. I could use this book for a diverse classroom because it does not incorporate a holiday. The symbol in this book is a scarecrow. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Judy | 1/22/2011

    " A rendition of the classic song... I know an old who swallowed a fly...

    This one will work well for kindergarten - 1st grade. A rousing read aloud and song book. "
