I Know An Old Lady Who Swallowed a Pie - Book Extension

Could this old lady swallow much more??? Her doctor bill must be out of sight, but she sure is interesting to read about.  Be sure to start with the original version so the kids can see where this came from. After reading we love  decorating a Kleenex box and poking things in her mouth in the correct order in small group, which is  great for teaching sequencing.  Your kids will see that old ladies just have a lot of natural charm.  WE SHOULD KNOW.
