Reviews

PreS-Gr 2-This cumulative tale by Lucille Colandro has the old lady swallowing a shell, a fish, a seagull, sand, and a wave. In a surprise ending, she burps and builds a sand castle. The tale's rhyme scheme changes slightly at the very end, which might be jarring to some listeners. While Skip Hinnant expressively narrates the story, make sure that youngsters peruse Jared Lee's humorous illustrations. Music and sound effects complement the narration. One track has page-turn signals, but on occasion the background music almost drowns out the sound. A fun listen.-Laura Davies, Kenton County Public Library, KY Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.
