Today I’m so excited to share one of my favorite books-turned-into- flannel:
This is such a fun story with super cute illustrations about where animals live! It’s a great introduction to habitats. The repetition and silliness makes it a great toddler read. Unfortunately, the book is a tad small, and it’s out of print… making it a perfect flannel candidate!
Here’s how it goes:
Is this the nest of a goat?
No, it belongs to a bird.
Do crocodiles live in shells?
No, but snails do…
Do elephants live in houses?
No, but families do!

You get the idea. I used mostly illustrations from the book, but added a verse at the end because I really wanted to use this flannel for my Families themed storytimes this week. 🙂
This was a HUGE hit with my toddler crowd. They loved yelling “NO!” when I put silly animal/home combinations on the board and telling me who the right animals were. I asked why elephants do not live in houses (they don’t fit, duh Ms. Jessica!) and we talked about who lives in our houses in our families.
