This is one of my new favs–it reminds me of Pete the Cat! The story is so versatile to fit a number of themes: getting dressed, farm, animals, tractors, stories in rhyme, stories you can sing! I had to flannelize it! I made a Farmer Brown complete with all the clothes:


And I made a tractor with all the animals in their rhyming clothes:


This should come with a warning! I can’t get this song out of my head! Now you won’t be able to, either:

    Oh Mrs Shia, you’ve outdone yourself! I love this song (now earworm) and your pieces. I think I need to make this soon! BTW – I hail from Browns and Breens (& fancy English side Hawksworth) and all I can think about now is my great uncle… Charlie Brown! Bravo ~ jane
