Flannel Friday is the reason I started blogging. I started this blog in April 2011 after I found out about Flannel Friday. I got so many ideas the first month of Flannel Friday, that I felt I needed to give back to the community with some of the visuals I had successfully used in storytime.
Although I have aspirations of expanding my blog, I have yet to consistently post on anything but Flannel Friday. So, this keeps me blogging and hopefully someday I will share some of my library programs, the books I love to share with the kids at the library, the books I love to share with my kids at home and everything about early literacy that makes me excited to do my job every day.
Any time I need a storytime idea, the first thing I do is look at some Flannel Friday posts. Flannel Friday has kept me motivated, made me more creative in my storytimes and has challenged me to get better at making my own storytime visuals. I get wonderful ideas for books, rhymes, visuals and storytime resources from everyone. I owe a lot to everyone who posts every week and those who host the round-ups. Thank you for all you do. I look forward to more posts as Flannel Friday continues to grow.

This week's round-up is being hosted by Rain Makes Applesauce. Thanks Sharon!
In addition to this post about why I love Flannel Friday, I did my normal flannel board post too- Five Giant Pumpkins.
