Book Club Week 10:
I Know an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Pie

By Hallie Bulkin

So I have pie on the mind. I was ready to make pumpkin pies yesterday but my family talked me out of it. I have the organic ingredients so it’s going to happen at some point in the next several days!

In the meantime, I could not get the song, “I know an old lady who swallowed a fly” out of my head,
which reminded me of this week’s book.


Theme of the Month


Book of the Week

I Know an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Pie
by Alison Jackson

Hint: In the book, the last line of every refrain is “perhaps she’ll die,” which I change this to “perhaps she’ll cry” and then we pretend to cry (boo-hoo-hoo). I much prefer cry over die, I don’t know about you! It’s simple to type out the word “cry” and cut and paste it into the book over the word “die” on each page as well.
