While it is probably late for Valentine's flannel stories, I just had to re-share this one. For the Valentine edition of Flannel Friday Miss Cate at Storytiming shared her flannel version of Matt Novak's My froggy valentine. I ran across it last week when looking for something to use for my Valentine theme this week and it was too cute to pass up. Also, if you happen to need a Valentine flannel for next week and have a frog dye-cut you could probably whip up your own version fairly quickly.
'True,' replied the Hairy Beast, 'but I am Prince of all hairy beasts!'
But, Polly was not looking for the Prince of Hairy Beasts so she decided to give the second frog a kiss. (Kissing noises from the kids again). And, poof!
'No, I am the prince of ogres,' replied the Ogre.
But, Polly was not looking for an Ogre prince, so she went ahead and kissed the third frog. (Kissing sounds). And, poof!
'Yep,' said the Toadstool, 'marry me?'
'No thanks,' said Polly.
She turned to the last frog. At this point she was really sick of kissing frogs, but there was only one left so why not try. She puckered up... (kissing sounds) and, poof!
Princess Polly turned into a frog! 'You are in luck,' the last frog told her, 'for I am Prince of the Frogs and you can be my princess!'
And the two frogs hooped happily away together!
Anyone feel like kissing a frog?
