Children's Book Review: There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed a Clover!
There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed a Clover!
Written by: Lucille Colandro
Illustrated by: Jared Lee
Published by: Scholastic Inc., 2012
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.
* Our family has been a fan of the Old Lady series and we even own a couple of them. I think the books are getting a little old for us though. In this newest one, out in time for St. Patrick's Day, the Old Lady swallows a variety of things to make a rainbow. The rhymes felt forced and didn't really seem to make sense. Overall, none of us were big fans.
Family Rating: So-so.
