I made this felt story a couple of years ago when I was working with the toddlers. It didn't really matter what animals you made for this story, but whatever it is, the lady was going to eat it and the children supported her diet. Instead of making her "die" like all the other lyrics, I liked to change it to "CRY" otherwise I wouldn't sleep at night.
Despite the countless versions of "The Little Old Lady", Pam Adam's version was my most favorite (The book on the right). I really like the colors and illustrations on die-cut pages that show what she swallows. As you can see, I somewhat followed the image of the old lady in my felt story.
