Swallowed a Fly is a great book to read. Its one of those books that repeats lines and students will catch on and resight them with you. They love doing this, not to mention this book is funny and your students will laugh all the way through it. The pictures are also so funny and really good. Great read aloud for lower grades!

This is a silly book about an old lady who swallows a shell and keeps swallowing things to try and get rid of the shell. I would use this in class because it is a silly picture book that children can laugh at. I would use this in classrooms from 2 - 6.

I agree with this review from Jenessa Morgan. The students love this book because of the rhyming and the silly overtures. ( )

instead of the usual old woman who is swallowing flys and other animals found in a barn this old woman is swallowing summer time things that are found on a beach. this book can be used towards the end of the school year as a fun simple lesson.

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0439873800, Paperback)

A new beach version of the classic "There Was an Old Lady" song and favorite series!

"There was an old lady who swallowed a shell.
I don't know why she swallowed the shell.
She didn't tell."

You won't believe why this old lady swallows a shell, a crab, a fish, a gull, a pail, some sand, and a wave! But watch out when she burps, with hilarious results!

With rollicking, rhyming text and funny illustrations, this lively version of a classic song will appeal to young readers with every turn of the page. And, there's a surprise ending!
