Buzz Said the Bee (book)

This is an adaptation of the book Buzz Said the Bee
by Wendy Cheyette Lewison.

Once there was a bee who sat on a duck.
“QUACK” said the duck. “There’s a bee on me.” And the duck said, “Scat,” but the bee just sat.

So the duck quacked again and sat on a hen.
“CLUCK,” said the hen. “There’s a duck on me.” And the hen said, “Scat,” but the duck just sat.

So the hen danced a jig and sat on pig.
“OINK,” said the pig. “There’s a hen on me.” And the pig said, “Scat,” but the hen just sat.

So the pig took a bow and sat on a cow.
“MOO,” said the cow. “There’s a pig on me.” And the cow said, “Scat,” but the pig just sat.

The cow began to weep and sat on a sheep who was fast asleep.
The cow had had enough of all these animals sitting on her so she said “Moo!” (remove cow from pile)
and the pig said “Oink!” (remove pig from pile)
and the hen said “Cluck!” (remove hen from pile)
and the duck said “Quack!” (remove duck from pile)
and the bee flew down to the sheep’s ear and whispered….BUZZ!
He woke up the sheep from a very sound sleep and the sheep left to have fun…and then there were none!




Making Flannels

When making flannels, I use these materials:

  • Stiff Felt (highly recommended!)
  • Puffy Paint
  • Hot Glue
  • Sharp Scissors (Fiskars preferred)

Learn how to use the above photos (or any pictures) as a pattern or template at
Felt-tastic Flannelboard Funtime.

And a big shoutout to Mr. Keith’s blog, Felt-tastic Flannelbaord Funtime, for providing inspiration for my feltboard ideas. None of my flannels are direct reproductions of anyone’s work, but I am inspired most often by his style.

Five Little Snails

Five garden snails sleeping in the sun,
Along comes a bird and scares away one!

Repeat 4, 3, 2, 1

No garden snails sleeping in the sun,
The bird flew away and here they all come!
(bring snails back, whew-snails are safe)
