If you follow my blog, you will know that Pete the Cat is one of my favorite book characters. It is like Christmas for me when a new Pete the Cat book comes out. This week we tried out Pete's Big Lunch, one of the new I Can Read books by HarperCollins. What I like about it, other than the silliness, is that you are building something. This translates really well over to a flannelboard. Plus, in the case of Mrs. Lisa lost her voice this week, the kids were able to tell the story as we stacked the pieces up.
If you have missed this book, Pete is making a sandwich. He just uses some unlikely ingredients. As you can see, Pete uses a whole loaf of bread, a fish, a tomato, mayo, an apple, crackers (by this time the kids are giggling), a pickle, swiss cheese, an egg, 2 hot dogs, a banana, a can of beans, and three scoops of ice cream (by now you have lots of laughter).
All of the pieces for this flannelboard are cut out of felt with puffy painted details.
This week's Flannel Friday Round-Up is hosted by Storytime Katie. For all things Flannel Friday, check out the official blog. Also, make sure you stop by the Flannel Friday Pinterest page for an excellent flannelboard resource.
Next week's round-up will be hosted here at Libraryland. If you will be going out of town for the holiday weekend (in the U.S.), the placeholder will be up by Wednesday (a little early this week).
