A Flannel Board

When I was doing volunteer work at the public library last fall, the children's librarian asked if I could create a flannel board for the story, "Goodnight, Owl!" While I was at it, I decided to make two sets - one for the library and another for my daughter Julie who is trained as a children's librarian.

The story is about Owl, who couldn't sleep. The bees were buzzing, the crows croaking, the starlings chittering, the jays creaming, the woodpecker kept pecking. Every time there seemed to be some peace and quite, someone else landed in the hollow tree and woke Owl up again. Would Owl ever get any rest?

Here are all the pieces for the flannel board as I made them in my Studio. This was quite a challenging project with many pieces!

Finally, the chattering hoards when they all occupy the tree at the same time.
