This is a book I remember from when I was a kid and it was read to me at school, I loved it that much and so I bought it for mine. As she is only 9 months, she can't appreciate the rhymes yet but enjoys the pictures and poking her finger through the wholes.

..... and her 7 year old brother!!....

The cut out design of the book makes things a little more interesting for the younger kids, seeing all the animals inside the old ladys' stomach.

Useful for reciting from memory when driving to keep little people calm.
I like it,

By a Book Depository customer 10 Dec 2008 3

"My daughter thinks this is a wonderful book! The repetitiveness is one of the reasons it's great for children. Both my kids like the hole in the book - it's good for poking! I have been reading this to my oldest since she was 2, she's now close to 5 and I think as time goes on, and she's become more familiar with the words she likes it even more! I expect she'll be saying it word for word with me before too long. And if anyone is worried about the PC of it - my daughter will tell you 'It's just a funny silly book!'."

Review quote

This classic board book retells a childhood favourite and can be enjoyed by adults as well as toddlers. Young children love the brightly coloured pages with their ever growing holes. The various animals shown in the old lady's belly are guaranteed to have your toddler giggling enthusiastically. 20050301
