LOVE the ending! I haven’t used this story in ages. Think I might need to plan a goat storytime soon.😉 Thanks for the information about The Flannelboard Storytelling Book and Judy Sierra
I just love this story. And no, it does not scare children. I have used it scores of times and have never had anyone break out in tears. I always get them to participate, saying “trip trap” and chiming in when the Troll says, “Who’s that walking across my bridge?”. Works every time. This one is made with interfacing (you may know it as Pellon). I learned this brilliant trick many years ago when I was fortunate enough to take a workshop on Flannel Storytelling with Judy Sierra. Her book, The flannel board storytelling book has patterns, ideas, and so many tips. This pattern came from her book.
