Flannel Friday: If Elephants Wore Pants

on August 12, 2011

This week I made a great storytime book into a flannel board.  It’s called If Elephants Wore Pants by Henriette Barkow.  It’s a rhyming story about a boy who dreams of elephants and the different pants that they might wear.  The illustrations are wonderful too.  I just love a good picture book with good illustrations.  The story is great by itself but I thought it would be even more exciting and entertaining for the kids if there was a flannel board to go along with it.  I gave my elephant some underwear even though he doesn’t have any in the story.  I didn’t want him to be naked while we changed him into his pants!  I hope you all enjoy!  Be sure to check out Cate’s Blog  for the Flannel Friday roundup later on today.

  1. I also would have given the elephant skivvies, so I approve. I don’t know this story–I’ll have to check it out. 🙂

      Unfortunately, I don’t. All of our copies are currently checked out. It looks like you can get a used one on in good shape too. Maybe you can try that!
