There Was an Old Dragon Who Swallowed a Knight by Penny Parker Klostermann

5 out of 5 stars

This book is another version of There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly. It introduces readers to a dragon who swallows a knight, a steed, a squire, a cook, a lady, a castle, and a moat. The repetition in this book is perfect for young children, and they will be amused by the illustrations. Entertainment is not the only thing they’ll gain from this book. The words used on each page will help to enhance their vocabulary.  Some of those words include savory, guzzled, gulped, perchance, and amass. With the repetition, even the youngest of children will quickly catch on to the pattern and repeat the phrases.
