Publisher's Summary

An old favorite as you've never seen it before! Everyone knows the song about the old lady who swallowed a fly, a spider, a bird, and even worse - but who's ever heard what's going on inside the old lady's stomach?

My 3 year old loves this!

If you could sum up There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly in three words, what would they be?

Funny; Simple; Classic

What did you like best about this story?

It's a classic story that is the perfect length for my three year old. Stuart Binder does a great job - it's the perfect tone for small children and keeps them engaged.

Any additional comments?

My daughter asks for this each time we get in the car. She can also recite the entire book by memory. Not just the book, but the tone and inflections that Stuart Binder gives in his performance.

Awful narration

The children did not care for this, and neither did I. It nears being obnoxious!

Why did I never realize how creepy this was?!

Because I never heard it read by this narrator! I downloaded this for my daughter, hoping for the silly song - like quality I recall from my childhood. This narrator only emphasizes the morbidity of this story. Not sure how to feel about this!

Great book for kids.

This book is cute for children. The reader is amusing to listen to. My son really like the book and has listened over and over again in the car.

A Favorite!

My kids LOVE this one. The silly story and over the top narration make them laugh every time. It works as a great distraction when they get whiny in the car:)
