This series of books, by various authors, is fun for both young children as well as beginning readers.
The Old Lady continues swallowing animals and objects until a thematic ending that will

It is also good for older children who are learning to read because there is a lot of rhyme and repetition, so that by the end of the book your child will fluently be able to read the story by memory alone. All the books in the series that we have seen have been great fun for everyone to read again and again.
