Educators and parents often look for teaching and learning materials for students based on a number of features, namely, materials that are easy to find, affordable and teacher-parent-friendly. Researchers have created a four-page fabric book as a resource to help teachers and parents engage in story-telling activities during class. The purpose of storytelling activities is to increase vocabulary, improve communication ability and student confidence. Four-page fabric books have storylines through characters, objects and situations created using a variety of fabrics. This qualitative study uses observation and interview methods to obtain data. The findings show that teachers can produce four-page storybooks and that teachers are confident that activities can be carried out with students. The formulation of appropriate aids can help teachers diversify the material in their student storytelling activities.
