I was expecting that this would be a book I’d downgrade when reading it on my own, without enthusiastic kids hanging on every word and/or participating.
But, it’s a delightful story. I love its cumulative nature, the sound effects, and the clever conclusion. It’s a...more
I liked The Little Old Lady Who Was Not Afraid of Anything. My daughter just found out what pumpkins are last week so she noticed the giant pumpkin on the cover. I had fun reading it aloud to her. It had simple illustrations and was an easy read so she could relate to the book well. It was fun going through the motions with her as I read CLOMP, CLOMP, WIGGLE, WIGGLE, SHAKE, SHAKE, ETC. She thought that was...more

Review: From School Library Journal
PreSchool-Grade 2 A delightful picture book, perfect for both independent reading pleasure and for telling aloud.

This book is about a old lady who ventured far to gather herbs, spices, nuts and seeds, and while doing so it became dark. As she was returning home, she came across shoes, pants, a shirt, gloves, a top hat and finally, a pumpkin head, all of which made noises trying to scare her. They followed her home, where combined they we...more
Near her home, she meets a very scary pumpkin head. She runs inside her cottage and locks the door. When she hears a knock at her door, all the pieces of clothing and the pumpkin head are there. They don't know what to do when she is not scared. She gives them the idea to assemble themselves into a SCARECROW!
And so, the next day, a new scarecrow is in the fi...more
I love this book! Such a perfect story time book for Halloween or pumpkins. I have a felt board set that goes along with it. The kids move along and join me in making the sounds that are used in the cumulative story.
Shoes go stomp stomp
Pants go wiggle wiggle
