Lucille Colandro - There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed Some Leaves!

There Was an Old Lady

There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed Some Leaves!

Author: Lucille Colandro; Illustrator: Jared D. Lee

  • AGES 5 - 6 
  • Genre Comedy and Humor, Poetry, Songs, Verse
This autumn-themed book takes the traditional rhyme to new heights of silliness. It all starts when the old lady, known to many laughing children from her previous books, swallows some leaves. Then one thing leads to another, and she gulps down a shirt, a pumpkin, a pole, some pants, and some hay. Put together, what could all these items make? Kids will be calling out with excitement, guessing what's coming next!

With rollicking, rhyming text and comic illustrations, this funny fall story has tremendous appeal.
