Book Review: 'The Little Old Lady Who Was Not Afraid of Anything' by Linda Williams

✰✰✰✰ One autumn afternoon, a little old lady set out to collect herbs and nuts. She walked and walked until it began to get dark. Along the way she encountered the CLOMP, CLOMP of a pair of shoes; the WIGGLE, WIGGLE of a pair of pants, and the SHAKE, SHAKE of a shirt. Even though the little old lady was not afraid of anything, she ran home and locked the door behind her. Then she heard a KNOCK, KNOCK at her door. Will the little old lady, who is not afraid of anything, open the door? Read the book to find out.

The Bottom Line: Check out this version of the classic tale at your local library. This is a cumulative story about bravery with a clever twist ending. Kids ages 4 – 8 will be enchanted by the folksy watercolor illustrations. Recommended for seasonal storytime reading.
