Animals, Birds & Insects
Pippa’s Penguins make two appearances this week. Danielle at A Bad Case of Books shares the classic version and Sarah at Read It Again! adds some clothing. If you’ve ever wondered if a penguin would look adorable in a yellow bathing suit, the answer is a definite yes!
Over at Story Time with the Library Lady, find picture instructions and an audiofile for the Scottish song, Three Craws.
Madigan Reads has a beautiful feltboard dragon.
Mel’s Desk is thinking spring with Garden Bugs to go with Lenny in the Garden, including a pattern.
Erin at Falling Flannelboards brings us a fun drawing story, Mystery Marsupial.
Wisely playing mix and match with her existing pieces, Recipe for Reading gives us Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed.
Not sure what animal you want for storytime? Miss Mary Liberry brings us the Mixed Up Chameleon.
Tracey at 1234More Storytimes shares Who’s Hiding in the Woods? filled with delightful woodland creatures as well as a game from her bag of flannel animals.
I made a Groundhog Puppet.
Meghan at Busy Crafting Mommy is has 3 flannelboards to keep warm with: Quilts Galore, Mitten Matching Game, and The Jacket I Wear in the Snow by Shirley Neitzel. The sweater is mighty impressive!
Linda at Notes from the Storytime Room has another version of The Mitten. I think every librarian needs a version of this story so there can never be too many versions to look at and be inspired by for making your own.
Lissa at Tickle the Clouds (love the blog name!) is thinking snow despite 70 degree weather with Ten Little Mittens.
What is Bridget Reading made me hungry with Five Little Strawberries.
There are two posts up at Storytime ABC’s this week. Kay Leigh creates her own magical Rainbow Stew. I can practically hear the oohs and aahs from the storytime crowd!
She also has a guest post from “Teacher Rich” for Five Red Apples. Our first entry from the Phillipines!
Transportation, Doctor Bag, Dust Bunnies, Caldecotts, Chinese Lanterns, Bold Ladies
Inspired by some previous posts, Mollie from What Happens in Storytime shares two activities for a Things that Go theme: the Where Does This Go? game and Going for a Ride in My Train.
Storytime Katie made a gorgeous felt doctor bag filled with medical instruments – check out the stethoscope!

And, last, but not least, Storytiming Cate has flannelized There Was a Bold Lady Who Wanted a Star (an out of print book, always a good choice for flannelizing).
