"There Was a Cold Lady Who Swallowed Some Snow!" by Lucille Colandro

There was a cold lady who swallowed some snow. I don't know why she swallowed some snow. Perhaps you know?

This time, the old lady is swallowing everything from snow to a pipe, some coal, a hat, and more! With rollicking, rhyming text and funny illustrations, this lively version will appeal to young readers with every turn of the page. And this time, there's a surprise at the end no reader will be able to guess!

*Here are the following pages that you will receive with your kit!*
