She’ll Be Coming Round the Mountain (and variations)

The original may be better known, but I sing The Story Train (welcome version) far more often, as it’s my current opening song at my toddler and preschool storytimes. I learned it from my colleague Anna, back when she worked as a children’s librarian too.  I haven’t played the breakfast food song yet, but I’m so excited to try it that I whipped up another quick felt story to go with it.  It should make its storytime debut soon.

She'll be wearing red pajamas...
Oh we'll all come out to greet her...

Edit: Hello Flannel Friday! This week’s roundup is over here. Details not evident in the picture: The jelly is a separate piece from the toast (but it doesn’t need to be). I made this one mostly freehand so if anyone requests I can scan it and share the pattern.
