Hello everyone and Happy Picture Book Month! I wanted to share a wonderful book that just begs to be flannelized. Here's my flannelized take on Boom! Boom! Boom! by Jamie A. Swenson: The text is pretty great as is, but for flannel storytelling I adapt it by adding a little more repetition and opportunities for audience… Continue reading Flannel Friday: Boom! Boom! Boom! Flannel Story
Today I'm excited to share One Very Big Bear by Alice Briere-Haquet. I've been meaning to flannelize this picture book for a LONG time, but Flannel Friday's Picture Book Celebration this November encouraged me to get crafting and finally do it! Bear thinks he's the biggest thing around, but a succession of smaller animals soon set him… Continue reading Flannel Friday: One Very Big Bear
I FINALLY made a Fall is Not Easy flannel! I feel like I've leveled up as a children's librarian. If you haven't been exposed to this book before, it's a fun, silly story that makes an even better flannel. It's all about a tree that much prefers the other seasons to fall. Winter is easy… Continue reading Flannel Friday: Fall Is Not Easy & A Fun Twist

This is a great one for a math, shapes, or spider themed storytime! This is a sweet story about a… Continue reading Flannel Friday: Walter’s Wonderful Web
Is it just me, or is there an abundance of hat-themed books just begging to be made into flannels?! This one has been on my To-Do list ever since I saw it at Jen in the Library's blog. Thanks Jen for putting me onto such a fun flannel! I love this story because it can… Continue reading Flannel Friday: Could You Lift Up Your Bottom?
While pulling in all the dragon titles I could find for storytime last week, I came across Klippity Klop by Ed Emberley. The book is out of print and too small to work, but the story itself is great! Reminiscent of Going on a Bear Hunt, it's full of fun noises and all those things… Continue reading Flannel Friday: Klippity Klop
