Flannel Friday: Do Lions Live on Lily Pads?

Today I’m so excited to share one of my favorite books-turned-into- flannel:

do lions live on lily pads

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.
