CBeebies Bedtime Story.

0:17:030:17:05

Well, I an see brown, spiky branches and, em...

0:17:070:17:10

Oh, bright green plant shoots.

0:17:120:17:14

What else can we see?

0:17:160:17:17

Oh, hello. I'm Anna.

0:17:170:17:19

I'm looking at the garden,

0:17:190:17:21

telling the animals everything that I can see.

0:17:210:17:24

Can you see out of your window?

0:17:240:17:27

Can you see the moon?

0:17:270:17:29

Has the sun disappeared because it's the end of the day?

0:17:290:17:32

In tonight's Bedtime Story,

0:17:320:17:34

the sun is just about to come up at the beginning of the day.

0:17:340:17:38

But I'm going to let the animals tell you about it.

0:17:380:17:41

The story is by Jeanne Willis and Sarah Fox-Davies

0:17:410:17:44

and it's called Mole's Sunrise.

0:17:440:17:48

Vole got up just before dawn.

0:17:480:17:50

Mole was eating breakfast, but Vole didn't have time.

0:17:500:17:53

"Where are you off to in such a hurry?" asked Mole.

0:17:530:17:56

"I want to see the sunrise," said Vole.

0:17:560:17:59

Mole had never seen the sunrise.

0:17:590:18:01

"It's beautiful," said Vole. "I'd love to see it," said Mole.

0:18:010:18:04

"Come with me," said Vole.

0:18:040:18:07

Off they went, hand in hand.

0:18:070:18:10

"Are we going very far?" asked Mole.

0:18:100:18:12

"Only down to the lake," said Vole, "It's the best place.

0:18:120:18:16

"Mind the tree root, Mole."

0:18:160:18:19

Mole felt the damp mist in his fur.

0:18:190:18:22

He heard the crackle of leaves under his feet.

0:18:220:18:26

Mole sniffed the air. He could smell the lake.

0:18:260:18:30

"We're here," he said.

0:18:300:18:32

"Let's sit on the log with the others," said Vole.

0:18:320:18:35

"What others?" asked Mole."

0:18:350:18:37

There was Rabbit, Squirrel and Sparrow.

0:18:370:18:39

Mole and Vole sat with them. "We've come to see the sunrise," said Vole.

0:18:390:18:44

"So have we," said Rabbit. "I hear it's very beautiful," said Mole.

0:18:440:18:48

"I should say so," said Squirrel.

0:18:480:18:50

"Here comes the sun," said Vole, "I can just see the top of its head.

0:18:500:18:54

"It's like the soft yolk of a fried egg."

0:18:540:18:57

"Like the one I had for breakfast," thought Mole.

0:18:570:19:00

"It's rising higher," said Rabbit, "It's up to its middle.

0:19:000:19:03

"It's sizzling in the lake like an egg in a pan of butter.

0:19:030:19:07

"Now it's burst! It's dripping hot, runny, sunny stuff everywhere."

0:19:070:19:12

"That's what happened to my egg," said Mole.

0:19:120:19:14

He wiped the yolk off his waistcoat.

0:19:140:19:18

The sun rose out of the lake.

0:19:180:19:20

"Now the clouds are like scoops

0:19:200:19:22

"of raspberry ice cream," said Rabbit.

0:19:220:19:24

"And blueberry," added Vole, "swirled with steaming custard."

0:19:240:19:28

"Delicious," said Mole, who always swirled custard on his ice cream.

0:19:280:19:34

The sun rose higher and higher.

0:19:340:19:36

"Now it reminds me of a shiny gold button," said Squirrel.

0:19:360:19:40

Mole felt the shiny gold button on his waistcoat.

0:19:400:19:44

The sun was like that, only a zillion times bigger,

0:19:440:19:48

or so everybody said.

0:19:480:19:50

"It only looks as small as a button

0:19:500:19:52

"because it's so far away," said Vole.

0:19:520:19:54

Sparrow said the sun was hotter than the hottest fire -

0:19:540:19:58

"It's so hot it's melting the moody clouds," he said,

0:19:580:20:01

"It's made them as light and fluffy as feather down."

0:20:010:20:05

Mole felt Sparrow's soft feathers. "I get the picture," he said.

0:20:050:20:10

The sun had risen. "So that's what the sunrise looks like," said Mole.

0:20:120:20:18

"Thank you for showing it to me.

0:20:180:20:20

"I never knew it was so beautiful."

0:20:200:20:22

Mole was blind, but at last he'd seen the sunrise.

0:20:220:20:27

He didn't see it with his eyes, he saw it in his mind

0:20:270:20:31

and it was even more beautiful than anyone could imagine.

0:20:310:20:36

That story was called Mole's Sunrise.

0:20:370:20:40

Wasn't the sunrise beautiful?

0:20:400:20:43

Well, it's time for you to go to bed

0:20:430:20:45

and dream about the raspberry ice cream swirling clouds

0:20:450:20:49

and the shiny gold button sun.

0:20:490:20:52

I'll see you soon for another story. Night-night.

0:20:520:20:56

Now, what can we see if we look our of the window?

0:20:560:21:00

What can you see, Rabbit?

0:21:000:21:03
