Lucille Colandro - There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Bell!

There Was an Old Lady

There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Bell!

Author: Lucille Colandro; Illustrator: Jared D. Lee

  • AGES 4 - 7 
  • Genre Comedy and Humor, Poetry, Songs, Verse
It all started when the old lady swallowed a bell, one that jingled and jangled and tickled as well. Soon she’s swallowing velvety bows, gifts to go with the bows, sacks to hold the gifts and so on, right up until she swallows Santa’s sleigh and reindeer! Then she hears a jolly “Ho! Ho! Ho!” — Santa Claus is waiting for a ride! How will she get everything back to Santa in time for Christmas?
Kids will be calling out with excitement, guessing what’s coming next — and, as with the original, the rollicking, repeating rhymes ensure that they will read along!
Series Information: Whether this wacky old lady is eating bats (for Halloween), leaves (in fall), or clovers (for St. Patrick's Day), she's sharing what's special about each holiday or tradition in a fun, fresh way. With just enough suspense, the catchy rhymes in these picture books encourage readers to guess their way toward a satisfying ending. Plus, as the old lady gobbles and gobbles and gobbles, new readers get to experience rhyme, repetition, cause and effect, and sequencing—which can boost fluency and vocabulary skills. No wonder so many kids have an enormous appetite for books starring this lovable lady!
