Cabrera, Jane There was an old Woman who live in a shoe Holiday House, 2016. $16.95 PICTURE BOOK
This is re-telling of the classic nursery rhyme. It features an
old woman who is extra cuddly and lovey and makes soup with coconut in it and
makes the children fashion show worthy clothes.
The illustrations are big and bright and fun.
I thought this book was kind of odd. Some of the Rhyming is
forced, like the use of the word Gnu. When I was a kid this poem always made me
worry about how all these children didn’t have parents, so I am not so in love with
the rhyme that I would add this book to my collection.
