Books We Read : Barnyard Dance by Sandra Boynton Noisy Farm by Jane Burton
Flannel Story :
Many parents own a copy of Eric Carle's The Very Busy Spider
but this book is actually a bit too long for most babies and young toddlers. One way to abbreviate this book is to tell it as a story rather than reading verbatim from the pages of the book. We did this today at storytime. No need to use all the farm animals -- just make sure you get to the owl at the end!
