There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Chick!

By Lucille Colandro   Illustrated by Jared D Lee

There was an old lady who swallowed a chick,
I don't know why she swallowed that chick,
But she didn't get sick!

This time, the hungry old lady swallows a chick, some straw, an egg, some candy, a basket, and a bow! And just as she's skipping along, who should she meet but the Easter Bunny! Can you guess what happens when she trips?

With rhyming text and funny illustrations, this lively version of a classic song will appeal to young readers with every turn of the page-a hip-hopping story for Easter! An ideal Easter addition to Colandro and Lee's Old Lady collection!
