Children's Book Club: I Know an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Pie

We are so excited for this time of year and getting ready for the upcoming holidays. Even more exciting is seeing how thrilling everything is through our children's eyes. Next week we have their Thanksgiving class parties and programs, and have been getting fun little glimpses of what activities and songs they have been working hard on to share with us. 

Cute has been singing one Thanksgiving song none stop for at least two months. "Don't be a turkey, just say thanks!" over and over and over. We can't wait to see his little face on stage and actually hear the song in its entirety. 

It was only fitting with all the Thanksgiving excitement just around the corner that our little ones picked a fun themed book for this month's children's book club pick. 

For November our little ones chose I Know an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Pie by Alison Jackson. 

I know an old lady who swallowed a pie, a Thanksgiving pie, which was really too dry.

And with that the feast begins! After the pie the old lady swallows a whole squash, all of the salad, and the entire turkey! As Mother and Father watch in shock, the two children are delighted to see the old lady growing fatter and fatter. And, in the end, the old lady makes a surprising and humorous contribution to the holiday festivities.

We found a few fun activities on Pinterest, but fell in love with this set of of sequence activity cards from Mrs. Jones Creation Station. They are perfect for all ages, and such a great way for little ones to retell the story!
