My 4-year old nephew loves this story, so I bought him this version for his 4th birthday. We have two other versions (a really creepy old one and a newer, confusing-to-read one). This one is great; He wanted me to read it immediately! The illustrations are fabulous, engaging, and creative. I am a teacher, so I really appreciate that the visuals promoted engaged reading and discussion of the text. I also love that this book mostly maintains the classic story (the ending is altered) while adding innovative illustrations that add so much to the story. This is my new favorite version. It is adorable!

One last note...In the back, they have included some tips on how to make this a more educational experience for kids. It is a good place to start if you aim to engage your kids a bit more.
My dad used to sing me this song as a child. I wanted a book to pass along to my kids that had similar words - and this is almost exactly it, except with a nicer ending. All of my kids love it!
*spoiler* Good book just as I remember from my
Childhood except for the fact the old lady doesn’t die...she just gets full
Got this and all the other sing-along books I could find because my toddler loves to sing them. Worth it for the variety and to be able to sing something other than Miss Mary Mack 20 times a day.
Some of the lyrics have been changed to make the book "safe", including ruining the punchline! Instead of " I know an old lady who swallowed a horse... She's dead, of course," it ends, "she's full, of course!"
My one year absolutely loves this book and giggles every time it is read to him. Perfect!
One of my daughter's favorite books as a young child. So much fun to read! I buy this book for every baby born among my family and friends. And my cousin's one year-old seems to think it tastes as good as it reads.
The ending has been sterilized slightly, but it still is a great and funny song with hilarious illustrations.
