Book: If Snowflakes Tasted Like Fruitcake by Stacey Previn

Flannel: Dress up warmly

The day is cloudy and the wind is bold.
Dress up warmly, you mustn’t get cold!
Put on your coat and zip it up tight,
put on your left boot, put on your right.
Put on your scarf and put on your hat,
put on your mittens and clap clap clap!
Go outside and play and play.
Come in again, and then we’ll say-
Take off your scarf, take off your hat,
The snow is melting so stand on the mat.
Take off your coat that was zipped up tight.
Take off your left boot, take off your right.
Take off your mittens, you’re almost unwrapped.
Let’s have some lunch, and then take a nap!

Boots and parka, scarf and hat, scarf and hat
In wintertime we dress like that!
