Last Easter, when Little Miss Muffet was only a few months old, she was given a "Clacker" book by her grandmother. (It looks like this.) The text inside the book is a simple story about a bunny, who loves to bounce. He bounces past a variety of animals, and ends up at home where all the other bunnies are sleeping. Miss Muffet rediscovered the book not long ago, and I read it 10 times in a row in a single morning at her request. After so many readings, I realized it would adapt well to the flannel board and would work well for a variety of Springtime themes.
Out of respect for copyright, I have only reproduced the text from the first two spreads of the book. Though you could probably make up your own version of the story pretty easily, if you find you would like to have the full text, send me an email, and I will be happy to share. (It seems really unlikely that most libraries would have this book!)

Bunny loves to bounce! Boing! Boing!
Bunny bounces over the stream where the fish are splashing.
Then bunny sees birds in a tree (Tweet! Tweet!)...
...hens in a field (Cluck! Cluck!)...
...and lambs in a meadow (Baa! Baa!)
Then he goes home to see the rest of the bunnies.
