10 Little Hot Dogs by John Himmelman

10 Little Hot Dogs by John Himmelman

Not that kind of hot dog!  These little hot dogs are actually dachshunds and they’re adorable. My flannel work is not nearly as cute as the book… Again, since this is a book, I will not duplicate the text word for word but walk you through the flannel board.  If you are unfamiliar with this book, as I was earlier this week, go find it.  It’s as cute as can be and I think makes for a great flannel version.

The text is predictable.

1       One little hot dog sitting in a chair …

“I want a friend with me!”

The text counts up to ten and then counts back to one.

One little hot dog sitting on a chair... waiting for a friend
Two more friends show up... more to come...
after a lot of playing 10 little hot dogs all fast asleep. Shhh.

Each little hot dog wakes up til there is just one left.  I changed the ending on the text for my flannel version: One little hot dog wide awake.  “Hey, where did all my friends go?”

To make my little dachshund friends, I found some clip art on word… I liked this doggie the best and then cropped and enlarged it.

  1. I love the button detail on the chair and pillow! Those dachshunds are so bright and colorful too! All so many adorable details, especially the numbers. Love it!

  2. Oh my goodness, all those adorable puppies! I love the numbers on their rear ends. And the button on that chair is such a great detail! The chair looks so great all filled up with little hot dogs. Great job!!!
