Flannel Friday: I Lost My Sock!

34839868-_uy200_

I loved this book as soon as I read it! It’s a super silly, simple picture book that would be great for early readers. I LOVE the illustrations and Ox’s last line at the end. Unfortunately, I feel it’s a bit small for storytime…. which means it’s a perfect candidate for flannel! I’m pretty proud of this flannel- totally freehand. It took forever, but I’m so happy with how it turned out.

I lost my sock

Basically, Fox is freaking out because he lost his sock. Ox tries to help out and find it. I love doing this as a flannel because it’s a great opportunity to ask kids “How can you tell?” and encourage them to explain why the sock Ox holds isn’t a match. There’s a lot going on in this book with patterns, visual discrimination, compare/contrast, and vocabulary. At the end, we find out Ox has Fox’s sock- he’s been using it as a hat to hold things! Why wouldn’t Ox just use his pockets?
