Review of "There Was an Old Lady Who Once Saw a Ghost and other funny rhymes," by Shirley Pettigrew



Review of
There Was an Old Lady Who Once Saw a Ghost and other funny rhymes, by Shirley Pettigrew

Five out of five stars
 This book is a delight, an old woman with fluffy hair, a body wide in the middle, wears glasses and funny clothes does several silly things. The structure of the text is generally that of four line segments where the second and fourth line rhyme. In nearly all cases, the rhyming is smooth, there is little that feels forced or unnatural. Children will enjoy hearing about this silly old woman that sings horribly, skates through a fence, keeps a clothespin on her nose, a horse and goose in her house and wears three hats at once.
 If I had been aware of this book when my daughter was young, I would have read it to her and she would have enjoyed it.
