There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed Some Leaves!, by Lucille Colandro, is a great book to read to your lower elementary students in the fall. An old lady starts swallowing things, on after the other. Students will love the repetition and the absurdity of the story. Each verse ends with, "and perhaps she'll sneeeze." When she finally does sneeze, all of the things she's swallowed come flying out and are assembled into a scarecrow. The illustrations are in fall colors, with lots of leaves and fall symbolism. It's a great book to read when studying the seasons. Students could collect and trace leaves, color fall pictures, or write their own versions of the story.
