Bear Squash-You-All-Flat Flannel

on September 25, 2013

This week I made a flannel story to go along with the tale “Bear Squash-You-All-Flat,” a Russian folktale I found in Judy Sierra’s Silly & Sillier: Read Aloud Tales from Around the World. The story starts with Whiskery Mouse who finds a mitten and decides to make it his home. One by one, along come Croaker the Frog, Hoppity Hare, Frisky Fox, and Sneaky Wolf who all join Whiskery Mouse and live in the mitten. But then Bear Squash-You-All-Flat shows up. When he tries to get in the mitten, he destroys the little house! All the other animals run away. The end. My group really enjoyed The Enormous Turnip flannel story I told last week, so I think they’ll really enjoy this one too as they are both cumulative tales with repeated phrases.

    Adorable! I like the combination of two-tone felt and paint–it really makes your pieces pop. Thanks for sharing it.
    Happy day,

  2. Sounds like a cute version of “The Mitten!”
    Your felts are adorable.
