I'd advise anyone attempting this poem to have one person manipulate the flannel board pieces and another read the words. It is quite long, and you don't want to lose the rhythm fumbling with the pieces. This is one of the first felt stories I ever made (I think it was the 2nd) and it shows in the execution.
Don't forget to stop by Sharon's blog for this week's Flannel Friday roundup. Previous roundups are here.
