Wibbly Pig Likes Bananas

A little story basket of three board books, that under usual circumstances may have been thought to have been outgrown. But by simply adding a prop for each page, made a perfect "read" alone text.
The book identifies a choice for Wibbly Pig and what is his favourite. In choosing the props I simply chose one from each page, not necessarily his favourite, this added a talking point.

five little men in a flying saucer

Five little men in a flying saucer, rhyme tray. Felt pieces and talking point buttons.
I printed the elements on t-shirt transfer paper, ironed it onto white felt then cut out. The window on the flying saucer I cut out prior to ironing on, so that it would be "felt" rather than the shiny plasticy feel that the little men wouldn't grip on.
Talking point buttons have each verse of the song on. Each button has the corresponding amount of stars on e.g. five little men: five stars.

And these little men, actually went to live on earth.
