    One thought on “The Little Old Lady Who Was Not Afraid of Anything”

    1. There is something to be said about being in touch with our inner child We grow up, we experience the world, we toughen up, we become adults Along the way, we outgrow our fears or we suppress them, but once in awhile, that fear we think is gone rears it ugly head and manifests in ways that scare us still On those days, wouldn t it be fun if we dug out our copy of The Little Old Lady Who Was Not Afraid of Anything, and be reminded that Boo Goes both ways In this classic tale, a little old lady re [...]

    2. This is a slightly watered down version of a story which I ve heard or read before an old woman is followed home by one animated garment after another In the tale I m familiar with they gradually assemble into a full, presumably ghostly, figure here they just sort of hang out together and wiggle In the illustrations they are clearly disparate Maybe this was intended to make the story less scary If so it was successful Possibly a nice Halloween read for less bold children who need a not too tense [...]

    3. I have read this book for theChildren s Book Club and it was alright The Little Old Lady Who Was Not Afraid of Anything is a Halloween children s book by Linda Williams along with illustrations by Megan Lloyd and it is about how a brave old lady goes out of her cottage to get some herbs, spices, nuts and seeds when she started to walk home, she meets a spooky set of clothes that follow her along the way The Little Old Lady Who Was Not Afraid of Anything may have a brave protagonist and cute illu [...]

    4. I would have LOVED this story when I was little All the sounds and the cumulative nature of the tale it d make a great read aloud Plus, my favorite story when I was little was Dr Seuss tale of The Pale Green Pants With Nobody Inside Them and this features a pair of pants with nobody inside them I also like how the Little Old Lady solves her problem of the frightening things following her in a thoughtful, kindhearted and proactive way A great Halloween read

    5. I reread this because I d never written a review for it, even though I used to read it frequently with and to kids, because it s one of 6 books for the October theme Autumn Halloween Picture Books Club at the Children s Books group.I was expecting that this would be a book I d downgrade when reading it on my own, without enthusiastic kids hanging on every word and or participating.But, it s a delightful story I love its cumulative nature, the sound effects, and the clever conclusion It s a perfe [...]

    6. This book is a great Halloween read for younger listeners because it is cumulative, super involved you get a whole body workout when you read this to your kids you have to shake, shimmy and clap on every page and it sends a message that scary things aren t scary when you face them bravely A must read for ages 3 8.

    7. My all time favorite Halloween picture book I read it every year for my Halloween storytime Even older kids will participate with the CLOMP, CLOMP, CLAP, CLAP, etc After reading the story, I like to go back to the beginning and show the picture of the old lady s yard The kids love seeing what is in her neighbor s yard and hanging on the clothes line.

    8. Impressive and enthralling at numerous levels, Linda Williams Megan Lloyd created The Little Old Lady Who Was Not Afraid Of Anything in 1986 I am elated to have discovered it It s brevity does not diminish one iota of its layered, tickling impact At first, one is tempted to attest Megan s tremendously attractive illustrations to this book s spark but Linda s storytelling thrills me just as much.A nature woman like me, gathers herbs on foot at a distance from home She has a contented life but kno [...]

    9. One dark and windy autumn night a brave little old lady was walking back to her house when she heard a clomping noise behind her What could possibly be making that sound She discovers an old pair of shoes has been following her, Clomp, clomp She turns to them and says, I m not afraid of you, but she walks a little faster As her journey continues she is confronted by other spooky things a pair of pants, wiggle, wiggle , a floating shirt shake, shake , a top hat nod, nod , a pair of white gloves c [...]

    10. The Little Old Lady Who Was Not Afraid Of AnythingOnce upon a time, there was a little old lady who was not afraid of anything But one autumn night, while walking in the woods, the little old lady heard clomp, clomp, shake, shake, clap, clap And the little old lady who was not afraid of anything had the scare of her life I gave this story 5 stars This is a must read every year around Halloween time for me and my family As a child I loved the vivid illustrations, and I ve continued to find reas [...]

    11. This is a cute book to read in the fall around Halloween It is easy to get children interacting because their are multiple characters in the book Children can practice manipulating words orally while the book is read I can create a lesson where children count the objects in the picture and label each one This will help the children with writing out numbers and recognizing pictures from the book Children could also practice sequencing the order of the objects to make up the scarecrow Many great l [...]

    12. A fun read for my 5 yr old as well as my preschoolers, this book had something for everyone Being a big fan of Halloween myself, I love anything that s even remotely scary or has pumpkins and this had both Although one of my 3 yr olds covered his face when the scary pumpkin face showed up, he still asked to read it even though we had read it the day before In fact it was he that requested it, knowing he was scared of it So, not overly scary but it might be a consideration if you have sensitive k [...]

    13. My favorite Halloween book not that it s about Halloween per se Genuinely creepy, but won t freak out 3 year olds, and a perfect ending Sadly, this year T didn t want me to read it to him because I can read it to myself Still, it will be a good place holder while we head to RI for the weekend for some suburban trick or treating

    14. A little old lady is walking in the woods and suddenly followed by shoes, shirts, pants and a pumpkin This is story that would work well for a younger child who likes to act out the parts of a story There is plenty of clomping, wiggling, shaking, clapping and nodding with one BOO at the end Nice rhymes for early readers who can easily pick up the repetitive pieces and join in.

    15. Love, love, love this book This will be our third fall reading it a billion times Incorporates sound with the story Kids will love to clap, stomp and shake as you read It is scary in a silly way Great for Halloween and read alouds

    16.

    17. This is the best not so spooky Halloween book for the littles Such a fun story to read and reread Over and over lol Nothing is as fun to a toddler as repetitive actions and clapping noises.

    18. My almost 3 yr old grandson loves this story He remembers all the sounds the garments etc make so I leave that reading up to him.

    19. Not scary enough Not creative enough Not the best version of this kind of story Maybe so, fellow reviewers But for teachers or librarians looking for a semi spooky story for a crowd of varying ages and creep tolerance levels, this is about the best pick I ve found I did have one first grader who I know is easily spooked that had to sit close to her mom for the story, but all the kids enjoyed the book and liked stomping, wiggling, shaking, clapping, nodding, and BOO ing along with the ghostly fig [...]

    20. This was another Children s Picture Book Club read topic group_I liked The Little Old Lady Who Was Not Afraid of Anything My daughter just found out what pumpkins are last week so she noticed the giant pumpkin on the cover I had fun reading it aloud to her It had simple illustrations and was an easy read so she could relate to the book well It was fun going through the motions with her as I read CLOMP, CLOMP, WIGGLE, WIGGLE, SHAKE, SHAKE, ETC She thought that was funny This book is aimed at 3 7 [...]

    21. One windy afternoon the little old lady went for a walk in the forest It started to get dark and when the little old lady started to walk home she kept seeing things in the middle of the path two big shoes, pants, a shirt, two white gloves, a black hat, and a very scary pumpkin head but the little old lady was not afraid of anything What became of these things They may not have been able to scare the little old lady, but they did scare all the crows away This book reminded me a bit of that Dr Se [...]

    22. Interesting story about a little old lady who is pursued by several items of clothing and a scary pumpkin They want to scare her, but she finds something useful for them to do instead This book was selected as one of the October 2011 Autumn and Halloween reads at the Picture Book Club in the Children s Books Group here at.

    23. SUMMARY Once upon a time, there was a little old lady who was not afraid of anything But one autumn night, while walking in the woods, the little old lady heard clomp, clomp, shake, shake, clap, clap And the little old lady who was not afraid of anything had the scare of her life REVIEW This is a delightful retelling of the story of Sir Pumpkinhead that pulls children in with the chance to help with parts of the story and get up and move around while they re listening Even my 2 1 2 year old gra [...]

    24. This is one of my favorite books I grew up doing this activity when I was in pre K On Halloween my teacher would dress up as a pumpkin, pumpkin suit, candy corn earrings and a stem hat She had it down and she would read the book to us so we could act it out I was with the program for 3 years I was there from 3 5 years old so I remember doing this very well Mrs.Carrie is my inspiration for this book and the lesson plan I did I will keep this lp with me for the rest of my years as a teacher and ma [...]

    25. A wonderful read from my childhood, one I d certainly suggest for other youngsters Whilst it is not my all time favourite childhood read I can still recall all the details of this one meaning it certainly left a lasting impression upon my young mind And isn t that what we want with children s books, for them to leave a positive lasting impression

    26. my kids like this one typical halloween book, not scary enough to give them nightmares, but creepy enough for them to want to hear it again and again.

    27. Just another adorable catchy story, and it is also a little humorous.It s been way too lost since I last read it and way too long since my mother has read it to me.

    28. So much fun Would be great as a participatory read aloud repetition, movement , or as storytelling or flannel.
