I’m so happy to finally be making flannel boards again! I’m not currently doing storytime but on Friday I’m helping my co-worker with one. It’s going to be Valentine’s Day themed, of course, so I suggested we read Mama Loves You By Caroline Stutson. I love using this book for Valentine’s Day but you could even use it for mom or family themes. If you haven’t read it, you must! It’s a cute rhyming story about different animals and the kids guess what’s going to be on the page. It begins with, I am yours, you are mine, mama loves you…Porcupine! And so on. It’s a very tiny book, so it was the perfect candidate for a flannel story. All I did was cut out felt hearts and print pictures of the animals and glue them on one side. Then, as we read the story we will flip them over to reveal each animal. Simple but cute!
