Our first Old Lady book was, “There was an old lady who swallowed a bat.” My daughter thought this book was hysterical and read it with me every single day for thirty days. Each day, she challenged herself to read it back to me. What did she swallow next? I then got the main book, “There was an old lady who swallowed a fly” and she loved that one too.
Now, whenever I see Old lady books I immediately purchase them.
