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.show moreby janice
..... 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,show moreby Elizabeth Clarke
"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!'."show moreby a Book Depository customer
