Flannel Friday: Little Pet in a Box


This week we did a pet-themed storytime for the last week of our summer session. I do not know how it got to be the last week already. I saw this adorable puppet rhyme on Jbrary's YouTube channel, and thought it would be perfect to introduce our pets theme, using this super cute dog puppet we have. 

As the Jbrary ladies pointed out, this rhyme adapts really well to whatever puppet-in-a-container set you may have. I think we actually do have the rabbit in the hat puppet they used but I found this one first. Here's the words I used: 

Little Pet in a Box
Little pet in a box, 
Sitting so still
Will it come out? 
Yes, it will!
It looks to the left.
It looks to the right. 
It looks straight ahead...
And pops out of sight! 

I decided not to name what kind of pet it was and let the puppy surprise the audience just to build some more anticipation. My group loved this and had me do it over and over! The puppet is Folkmanis

This week's Flannel Friday host is Library Village!
