We celebrated birthdays this morning at storytime -- and had two attendees whose birthdays were just a few days away! Always very cool when that happens ...
This storytime was simple and sweet, just like a classic birthday cake.
It's My Birthday by Heidi Goennel (out of print)
Wolf's Coming by Joe Kulka (what's a birthday celebration without a little, um, surprise?)
Muriel's Red Sweater by Dora Dokas
A Birthday For Cow by Jan Thomas
I also shared the story "The Cake That Mack Ate" using the book prop from Book Props -- I think this one is sadly no longer available. It really is one of their better efforts. Could probably be made into a flannel story with a bit of work.
Finally, I shared this flannel story :
Five little cupcakes at the bakery shop
Bought a cupcake and ate it right away!
Four little cupcakes ...
So I bought myself a birthday cake!

But I imagine these two images can be fairly easily produced with freehand drawings.
