Flannel Friday: Bark, George

1 Jul

I made this flannel years ago and often forget I have it because I really love reading the book so much. But I got it out this week for a Dog-themed storytime and realized how much I like it!

Bark, George by Jules Feiffer is a simple, but silly, story that’s super easy to memorize.  Here’s George; I made him by photocopying and enlarging an image of George from the book, cutting it out and sticking it on felt, and tracing.

I picked an open-mouthed image of George

I also color photocopied a picture of the doctor; cut him out and covered him with contact paper. A piece of felt is stuck to the back:

Giant George!

Finally, I made tiny felt animals that I pull out of George:

Cat, Duck, Pig and Cow

George is actually 2 layers of felt; the second layer is glued on around the edges but there are openings at his mouth (to pull the animals out) and along his back (to put them in):

The little animals layered inside George in the order in which they will be pulled out.

I adore this story; I have entertained family members by reciting it to them in the car. Who wouldn’t love George?
