Amazon calculates a product’s star ratings based on a machine learned model instead of a raw data average. The model takes into account factors including the age of a rating, whether the ratings are from verified purchasers, and factors that establish reviewer trustworthiness.
If you had no other There Was An Old Lady experience, this would be pretty clever. As rewrites go, it's pretty good, related to Easter, which was my reason for buying it, to read to my grandkids via computer link. It worked pretty well, and they enjoyed the story.
I am very sad. I love these books but it came al bent and shoved in my mailbox. I mainly blame the postman but wish it would have been packaged differently to prevent this. I cherish books so this may not matter to many but it means a lot to me and my kiddos!
I used this for story time at an Easter activity for children ages 3-12 and they all loved it. Even the adults present got a good laugh. We have enjoyed all of the There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed stories. My daughter was first introduced to them by her school teacher. She said they are some of the classrooms favorite books.
