To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I love the old lady books and we have several from the series so far, but this one is terrible-I could have written it better. It seems as though she wrote this book in an hour just to meet a deadline or something. The events don't make any sense, the rhyming is bad and the ending is stupid. Save your money or get one of the other old lady books.
This book was poorly written. It doesnt make sense...so she goes from swallowing horns of plenty to hearing a band and marching to the grandstand then it seems like pages are missing bc it goes right to the parade got underway ans everything she ate is in the parade. My 3 year old was less than amused. Not easy to follow.
The best one of this series! The rhymes are really fun to read aloud and kids love this one! We started a tradition to read it every Thanksgiving to all the kids in the family. But it's fun to read at anytime. My son loves to finish the rhymes now that we've read it a few times. Silly, a bit nonsensical, and a perfect light-hearted read for children of all ages!
My two year old has become obsessed with all of the "There was an Old Lady" books after my best friend gifted "There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Bat" at the beginning of October. I am in the process of buying as many as I can. I love that there is one for every season/holiday, and I really love her face when she opens the Amazon box to see her new book. I'm glad I'm getting to show my daughter how to love reading at a young age!
