Texts and Tunes: Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly

As a child, when I heard the opening notes of "I Know an Old Lady (Who Swallowed a Fly)" I would be rolled on the floor in fits of laughter. The Pete Seeger song was a staple in our home and we played it until the tape wore out. I recently introduced the folk tune to my daughter, who thinks it is one of the silliest stories she has ever heard.

So when I came upon this set ($50) that includes the old lady and the eight insects and animals she eats to get to the fly, I knew I'd found a winner. We can now act out the story as we read along with the accompanying book. I foresee many belly laughs in our future.

How cute! I loved the song as a kid too. I agree with Rostarchic though about it being a bit pricey. Might be a great arts and craft project to do with the kiddies.

i used to have this in my classroom (former kindergarten teacher) and the kids LOVED it...my daughter will see this very soon, she is still too little but i know she will get enjoyment out of it soon.
