There was an old lady who swallowed some books is a modern fantasy in children literature. I enjoyed this book for three mains reasons. The first, the illustrations were perfect for this story. Every feature on the old lady was exaggerated. When she was just walking around her stomach was large but when she was swallowing items, her mouth was the largest thing on the page. Next, I enjoyed the language the author used to tell the tale. They used repetition and rhyme to mimic a poem almost to help young readers understand. Repetition is key in early development the more words a child is exposed to the better. Which lead me to my third reasons, the vocabulary use. Each item the old lady swallowed any child that has gone to school would recognize. This makes the book relatable to all ages. The students will want to keep reading to see what the woman swallows next. The main idea of this text is where is falls slightly short for me. It is about an old woman who swallows things for the purpose of helping what she previously swallowed. It could get confusing for early readers to follow. ( )

This funny rhyming book is part of a series about an old lady who swallows lots of strange things. This is clearly her version of a back to school book. The rhyming is fun and the things she swallows are funny. The illustrations are also pretty entertaining. Can't wait to see what else she swallows. ( )
