Book Review - There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Clover!

About the Book
There was an Old Lady who swallowed things over and over, and now she's come back to swallow a clover!

She's back! That lovely old lady has returned just in time for St. Patrick's Day. Now she's swallowing items to make the perfect rainbow to hide a pot of gold.

My Take on the Book
There are several different versions of "There was an old lady that swallowed . . .". This particular version begins with our little old lady swallowing a clover and ends up with her dancing with a leprechaun on St. Patrick's Day. Of course there is a pot of gold and a rainbow within the story. It is simply a silly and enchanting story that children will enjoy . It includes rhyme and rhythm. The illustrations show such detailed animation of the facial expressions not only of the little old lady, but also the various creatures she swallows. You can almost feel their anxiety as they end up being swallowed but then their elation at the end of the book.

Laugh along with your child as you read this delightful story.
