I chose this book under the age category of 4-7. This book is about an elderly woman and her cat who lived in a boot and didn't like children because they were too noisy and how she gave them a potion to make them "be gone" but they actually turned into elderly people too! The rest of the book is about how she was able to turn them back into children and she learned to love them. This book rhymes the whole way through, which the children will love. Just reading it to my self was very enjoyable. [...]
It has a magic theme and will work for school age. By this point I just need anything!7/13/17 Used at an Outreach storytime (American Diabetes Association Utah Day Camp with a Magic theme). They were K-3rd age. The kids enjoyed the story well enough. Not sure they got some of the humor with the rhyming text. But they loved seeing the cat become a kitten.
This book is a twist off the old nursery rime "there was an old women who lived in a shoe". This is a cute book becuase the main character lives alone and trys many funny ways to get rid of the neighbor children. The ending of this book has an interesting twist. The pictures in this book are also very nice. Because this book has a poetic feel to it, in an interesting rythem, I would use this book with older students to introduce poems. Students who had listened to this book could then come up wi [...]
I'm really not sure how to rate this one. Wonderful, colorful illustrations. Catchy rhyme-scheme. The intended message is a good one, too. Would be a good read for polygamist kids.But um I found the whole notion of a neighbor poisoning a whole houseful of children disturbing. "Kid-b-gone" seemed a bit too much like arsenic, in its intended use.
This story of a mean old woman who learns the error on her ways through a foiled attempt to rid herself of some children is simple and nicely told. The moral is pretty plain and the story has humorous illustrations to tie it all together.
A twist on the old classic, this story is about an older woman living alone and the family that moves in next to her. This is a story that embraces the chaos of youth and lots of running around children and how that energy and fun can help keep an older woman young.
Very cute rhyming book. Some of the words were difficult for third grade.
Wonderful book for prediction! I love this story; it's about woman that does not like children, but soon changes her mind.
Superb wordsmithery for kids - pungent, smart rhyming which snaps, crackles, pops, and crucially, scans. Great illustrations too. A gem.
i love this book
This is a wonderful book that can be used to introduce students to the home-away-home writing process.
Funny! This could be used to teach the don't knock it until you try it strategy, predictions, just for fun, and for morals.
