The idea that a chick is an essential part of an Easter basket is bound to make the feathers fly among people who care about animals.

And is swallowing a chick really such a shocking thing when most people swallow about 28 chicks per year? Think about it.

Read for Storytime Express March 23&24 2016 for Easter.

Read for Storytime, April 12th 2017
Theme: Easter eggs & bunnies

The kids always choose this book first. Not really a fan but they always giggle gag when she hops the basket out.

There was an old lady who swallowed a chick is a book that provides students with more practice with Rhyming. Examples included bow/show, chick/sick and candy/handy. This book is great to transition from winter into spring! I would use this for a spring rhyming lesson.

This book was about an old lady who swallows a variety of stuff without getting sick. Read to find out what happens to her at the end!
Everything that the old lady was swallowing had a lot of meaning towards the end and that is what the author was building towards. With a chick, a basket, candy etc, it helps the author send out a message to her audience in a creative way.

I thought this book was so cute. My sister actually picked this book and wanted me to read it for her. I thought it was weird at first since it was an old lady swallowing stuff, but my sister found it funny, fun, and creative, so I believe the author thought out of the box when creating this, which I respect.
The book was very flexible and not a hardcover book which I liked too. The font was simple and went well overall with the pictures. ...more

{My thoughts} – This book is just like all the other books that are in the series “There was an Old Lady.” This one is written for the Easter holiday and the illustrations and the story within the pages help to show that it is what the story is leading up to.

I think that this book would make a great addition to any child’s Easter basket when the time comes. It’s a silly book that may have the ability to cause some laughter depending on how your child responds to the story.

This is another wacky version, starring the Old Lady Who Likes to Swallow, - Anything - really!

This time she has swallowed a chick, straw, an egg, some candy, a basket, and a bow!

And, who she meets at the end of the story, will delight your young readers.

For added fun, see if they can predict who the mystery guest, is at the end of the story!

So, why only three stars?

The girls, and I, did not like how she swallowed the chick.

Text to teach connection:

This book would be great to read during the Easter holiday. This book could also be used to teach rhyming words. Words that were used such as sick/chick, candy/handy, Tisket/tasket/basket , etc. It is a playful book that I think young children would enjoy while also learning something. Once the book was read, students could each share some of their own rhyming words ( doesn’t have to be related to the book) with the class.

I am in search of a great Easter book, not too sweet like most of them out there, maybe a bit of humor, a good story, and great artwork. Unfortunately this is not the book. It is okay but that is the best review I can give. Maybe there is a boy out there who will enjoy it but I really wonder. I have read other "There was an old lady..." books and they were better than this one.

Traditional Literature

This was an Easter version of the classic "There Was an Old Lady" song. The old lady swallowed all the perfect stuff to put into an easter basket. She was hopping along when she ran into the Easter Bunny. When she met the Easter Bunny all the stuff she swallowed flew out of her mouth and made the perfect basket for the Easter Bunny.

I love this series of books and the kids do too!

Based on the traditional story- these follow the same pattern with a new theme

Introduces concepts of themes and encourages children to compare the authors previous work

Lovely illustrations as well

Always a favorite during Easter week for my preschoolers! By now they have sung Leaves, Bat, Pie, Bells, Snow, Rose, St Patrick's Day... they know how to predict and can sing with me. Definitely a must have for your class!

Good grief, I don't know what to make of There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Chick!. It's silly, the rhymes are wonderful, I found the ending abrupt and rather dismaying and I hated the illustrations. Oy. Not a book I'm giving to my grands.

This was not as good as some of the others we have read. She swallowed a chick, then an egg then candy to sweeten the egg? Why? It just didn't have the same effect on my children. They were not as amused and seem rather bored.

This is a spinoff of the original "There was an old lady" and in this book, it just throws out great rhyming schemes and holds the reader's attention throughout.

I liked this book because it was funny and the old lady through up all the things she swallowed and the Easter bunny took them and gave the basket with all the stuff in it to a child.

Easter version of "There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly."
This would be a fun book for Spring or around Easter time.

This series suspends logic and is a bit disgusting but my preschooler adores them so we read them.
