Flannel Friday: Little Boy Blue

I made this flannel board for parents to use with their kids at the Early Literacy Fair we will be having at our library in July. I couldn't find the flannel board we had bought of Little Boy Blue, so I decided to use clipart to make my own. I found all these images on and in Microsoft clipart. I like using real images when I can because some kids may not realize what a corn field or what hay actually looks like. I grew up on a farm, so all these things were normal for me, but not always the case for kids in suburbia. I will probably use this in one of my storytimes this year. Here is the pdf.


  1. You're right -- it's important for us to remember that a lot of the kids may be unfamiliar with the real life images!

  2. ... and a lot of parents are unfamiliar with these nursery rhymes. It amazes me how many don't know them.
