There was an old lady who gobbled a skink. And a worm and a pail and a line and an oar and much more in this hilarious book about a crazy fisherwoman who swallows all the essentials for a successful fishing trip. With the ever looming threat of “perhaps she’ll sink,” readers will hold their breath in anticipation as she gobbles her way through the tackle box and then the boat! With an already impressively full stomach, she reaches for just one last bite . . . but to find out how the story ends, you have to read the book! A wonderfully humorous take on a classic nursery rhyme by Tamera Will Wissinger, accompanied by Ana Bermejo’s fun-filled illustrations, this story will delight children, adults, and all those who like fishing. It’s perfect for reading aloud and sure to be read (and perhaps even sung) again and again. Intended for preschool-aged children, this silly story is sure to be a fun read-aloud both at home or at school/daycare. It's also the ideal gift for kids whose parents or grandparents love to fish or to explore the outdoors and might even inspire a few to try fishing at some point (hopefully without gobbling any of the tackle!).

What kinds of instruments would you imagine a band of cowboys playing? Surely nothing fancy, but they can still make do with what they have, like jugs, combs, boots, and whatever else they can find. Out on the open range, with no one to tell them to quit their hollerin’, a cowboy band counts from ten to one in a tune children are familiar with. Silly phrases, toe-tapping rhythms, and the occasional twist make these cowpokes a great addition to any story time or bedtime lineup. Featuring a ragtag group of cowboys from author Tamera Will Wissinger, and colorful, offbeat illustrations by Matt Loveridge, This Old Band is sure to delight (and teach kids a few things about counting and noises) children and adults alike with a fun take on a popular nursery rhyme. A fun read-aloud for preschoolers and kindergarteners (ages 3 to 6), children will learn about various unusual instruments while learning the important skill of counting down from 10 to 1. Each page shows the number of band members that correspond with the number in the verse. Kids will be able to count them and also find hidden creatures throughout, making this an interactive story for bedtime, school, or anywhere. If parents or teachers are familiar with "This Old Man," they can even sing the book and teach it to their children for added interactive fun.
