What a great week, everyone! I'm as sad as most people to see summer go, but I'm looking forward to cooler temperatures and falling leaves, not to mention everything pumpkin flavored. And even though summer is winding down, Flannel Friday is still in full swing. I've loved seeing the fantastic flannel posts our contributors prepared for us. Here they are for your flanneling pleasure:
Camping is a favorite summer activity and Lauren has made this delicious flannel to celebrate a favorite tasty treat: S'mores! This rhyme will have you giggling and looking for some marshmallows.
Kathryn was inspired by Sunflower Storytime to make her own version of Two Little Sharks. Then she added more creatures to the under the sea party to make an even ten.
Danielle's two shark-themed flannels were inspired by Destination Storytime and ItsyBitsyMom. And sadly, she's moving on to Teen and Adult services and won't get to do her wonderful storytimes anymore. We hope you still stop by to chat with us, Danielle!
We're leaving the ocean behind to check out how Melissa brought Meeow's world to life. That playful kitty is hiding and it's our job to find him! She even includes ways to modify the flannel for different ages, proving once again that she is our resident genius.
Bonnie is continuing the Little Mouse fun with her own version, Ladybug, Ladybug. She even has a great idea on how to use it to focus a wiggly, giggly group.
Let's talk about fall! Ms. Kelly reminds us that the season of pumpkins and spice and everything nice is right around the corner with Five Little Apples.
Jaime is showing off a flannel she made when she was still a baby librarian, Fall is Not Easy. They're very intricate and a perfect way to share a favorite autumn story. And to think all that talent is right down the road (highway) from me!
Everyone did such a wonderful job this week. Thank you, Flannel Friday crew for being your usual amazing selves!
