Felt stories derived from published books is a popular way of enjoying the flannel board with young children. Eric Carle has always been my favorite author and artist to transfer into felt stories. His pictures are not complex and his storyline is usually systematic, lending itself to pieces coming on and off the flannel board. His stories always hold learning elements, from counting numbers to life lessons! The following photos are some of my hand-made stories that are a part of my "toolbox" as an early childhood educator. "The Very Hungry Caterpillar" felt pieces to accompany his published book, is a popular purchase when I am selling felt stories at markets or conferences. In addition, I have written an article about creating a theme within a preschool or daycare curriculum all around the book which can be viewed on my website: Circle of Ideas.
