This much loved classic story that includes a Book & CD provides a wealth of activities. The book is very cleverly constructed so that the holes in the book work both backwards and forwards.

The story is about a huge old lady who accidentally swallows a fly then swallows a great many animals one by one as a remedy, until she finally ingests one to many.

Each page is a song full of details and humor to help children remember things in a series. As each animal is swallowed by the Old Lady, there is a cut out shape of the animal placed over the top of the one preceeding. The various animals shown in the old lady's belly are guranteed to have toddlers and preschoolers giggling.

The song encourages fun with visual clues provided from the book and manipluatives (sold separately).

The concept of size is physically demonstrated as each animal is larger than the previous one.

Supporting materials to stimulate reading activities and strengthen literacy skills are sold separately. Available is a set is a set of 7 Bean-filled Cloth Animals (YD1142) that will extend and develop the reading experience and promote fine motor development as the child manipulates the figures.

Also sold separately is the Old Lady Who Swallowed A Fly Puppet Doll (YD1156). The soft appealing Old Lady Puppet Doll allows children to act out the story as it is read and manipulate each of the bean filled figures for the old lady to swallow.
