    1. I know I should just laugh at this silly book but it struck me wrong Even though we almost all end up eating to the point of explosion on Thanksgiving Day, this book seemed uncomfortable to me Ageism and body image concerns came to mind, as well as the weirdness of an enormous, stuffed old lady becoming a balloon in the Thanksgiving Day parade I know, I m sorry I ll try not to be so aware next time.

    2. Though I m not a fan of the scribble illustrations, they were easily overlooked by the humor of what this old lady would eat next A good rendition of the swallowed a fly song, though I think I almost like this one better because of the food Thanksgiving humor The repetition is always good for a storytime, and this twist is enough to keep the interest of most children Though it goes along with my idea of a Dessert theme, the overall presence of Thanksgiving in this book makes it seem like it migh [...]

    3. This is a great book to talk about good manners and consideration for others when sharing food.I would do an activity in small groups as follows I will have cutouts of food representing the food on the story and set up a Thanks Giving table for each small group.Then, I will ask the children to go ahead and serve the plates and have pretending dinner with their peersAfter that, I will have a conversation about what they just did, how they handle the situation, if they took turns, if they ate with [...]

    6. I spin on the classic I Know an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly however this was not like that book at all There are much better spin offs out there like There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Clover and There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Bat I found that I really did not like the illustrations either, they were sort of disturbing and the Old Lady ate all of the Thanksgiving food and the other adults seem angry at her for eating all of the food It just didn t work for me.

    7. sigh Finally A book about an old lady swallowing things that actually makes a little sense Except for that potI still don t understand that one AT ALL But, view spoiler AT LEAST SHE DOESN T DIE D hide spoiler So much better than that stupid fly version This one has to be the best so far.

    8. Many picture books exists which follow the cumulative pattern of There s was an old lady who swallowed a fly , but this one takes the cake errr, Pie Not only are the illustrations eye catching, thanks to Skippyjon Jones creator Judith Schachner, but the new twist on the old song is fun and the ending is a pleasant surprise.

    11. This fun holiday twist on a classic, There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly, is an exciting one to read during the Thanksgiving holiday In this twist, there is a older lady who has quite an appetite Her diet consisted that night of a salad, a whole turkey, an entire pie, and so much perhaps she ll die The comedic words are accompanied by wonderful, colorful, and chaotic illustrations allow the readers to be even engulfed in the story I would recommend this book to children grades k 4 It is [...]

    12. Text to TextThe author of this is Allison Jackson This book reminds me of the book, I know a lady that swallowed a pie This book teaches concepts of rhyming word as well as name a Holiday This book teaches words such as alliteration It is also a fiction book that tells a story of this that can t happen in real life.

    13. I don t know how this is so much ageist and fat shaming than the original which I actually like, probably because it s so outlandish , but Jackson managed it This book just made me so uncomfortable, I m glad I gave it a read through before putting it on display this holiday season Back to the stacks it goes

    14. This book was funny I was amazed at the amount of food the hosts had Why were they showing placing it in front of the old lady They were already scared thatperhaps she will die D I was seriously waiting for this moment, but oppss my bad P Also, I find the ending abrupt

    16. I don t think this book is funny or cute overeating on Thanksgiving doesn t make you a balloon in a parade and it isn t okay to use people s weigh or body changes for humor like this.

    18. I like this book and it is a favorite among many children that I know It makes me think of Thanksgiving and gives me a sense of holiday joy I do like the old lady and the fly book better though

    20. First of all I did look over some of the other reviews for this book on since sometimes curiosity drives me to wonder what people dislike about the book, especially if it is something that I would agree with Surprisingly on the majority of people who dislike the book don t like it since of the fact that it says I guess she may die The rhyme was well known when I was young and I don t think there were many who objected to that particular fact so I guess it all depends upon the generation that you [...]
