Flannel Friday - Señor Rattlesnake Learns to Fly

It's Friday once again! This week, I'm featuring a flannel board made by one of my very talented coworkers, Miss Kelly!

"Señor Rattlesnake Learns to Fly: A Tale from Mexico" from Thirty-Three Multicultural Tales to Tell by Pleasant Despain. Little Rock, AR: August House, 1993.

Snake has always wanted to fly. His friends the buzzards decide to help him achieve his dream with the aid of a well-placed stick.

Unfortunately, not everyone is as nice as the buzzards.

Helpful Dove has some advice for Snake on how to deal with Eagle.

But does Snake listen to Dove? You'll have to find out!

Thanks Kelly for the great pictures!

  2. This looks like a fun one! I love snake's cheeky grin!

  3. K - The book, sadly, doesn't have templates. She made them using coloring pages she found online.

  4. She suggests a simple Google image search for the animals.

  5. Wow! The details on those animals are so lovely. Tell Miss Kelly that she's awesome! (And thank you for sharing it with us, too.)

  6. I agree, the details are awesome!
