So as I was making flannel board sets to some of Matt Novak's other books (My Froggy Valentine and Too Many Bunnies), I decided to search for any others, since I enjoy his story telling. I found this one called Rock-a-bye Christmas:
The story goes (and is paraphrased for this blog post):
Now in the book, the animals all wake up and party in the house, but I thought that would be hard to transition to in felt so I will leave the story like I did. As you can see, it doesn't need to be a Christmas Story but you can use it that way if you would like. That makes it more versatile!!!
I also decided it wasn't necessary to have all of the pieces reverse like they do in the book, with the other side having them asleep. I only did that with the farmer. I can always go back and make the animals asleep if I decide to later.
