There was an old lady halloween
There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Bat! by Lucille ColandroI have to start off by clarifying that I mostly dislike seasonal books. Halloween-themed baby/childrens books, for example, are ridiculous. And I dont mean Goosebumps or Scary Stories, I mean the books that (sometimes literally) scream Halloween at you.
For instance... this book. What is the point? It starts off really well. This old lady swallows all these typical Halloween creatures like a ghost or a goblin. The build-up is so intense and so funny and exciting. It isnt too bad. I almost change my mind about Halloween-themed books.
Well, all she does is yell Trick or Treat at the end. And thats it. There is no point to the story, no coherent ending. It makes you feel like the author had to use it somehow because of Halloween and all... and thats why I loathe Halloween-themed books. Its like throwing a bunch of gross keywords into a cauldron, stirring it frantically, gulping down the whole green, gooey mess in one go, then projectile-vomiting it onto a blank page and THEN... selling the final, disgusting product as a book... Some kids books treat children like theyre complete idiots and I dont like that attitude. Just stick to the regular The Old Lady Who Swallowed books...
13 Days of Halloween: There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed A Bat
I decided to have a Halloween Tea Party with the tinies this weekend. We had the best time with our characters and little treats! Anything she comes across, winds up in her tummy. My smallest thinks it is the funniest thing to have this old woman rambling around swallowing everything from cats to bats to owls. He has a regular giggle fest over these books.
