CBeebies Bedtime Story.
Oh, hello. I'm Adjoa.
I'm looking for my bear. Have you seen him?
He's about this big and light brown with a really sweet face.
There he is.
Thank you for helping me find him.
Come on, you.
Well, tonight's bedtime story is all about Flora and her bear.
He has a soapy, spinny adventure
and he comes out looking a bit different from how he started.
Do you want to hear all about it?
Great. Well, if you're sitting comfortably, I'll begin.
The story is called Wash-A-Bye Bear.
And it's by Thomas Docherty.
"I love you, Bear," said Flora one morning.
"But Mummy says you are smelly and full of bits and you need a wash.
"So you're going in the washing machine with all the dirty socks.
"Don't worry, Bear, I'm going to be right here waiting for you.
"Be brave, Bear!"
Wash away soggy breakfast smears.
Wash away melted ice cream tears.
Wash away memories of the beach.
Birthday cake and sticky sweets.
Wash away spatters of winter showers.
Wash away mud and rain-soaked hours.
Wash away scrapes from climbing trees.
Hide and seek in autumn leaves.
Wash away glittery glue from clothes.
Wash away paint from paws and nose.
Wash away furious felt-tip scribbles.
Splats and splots and drips
and dribbles and...stop.
Poor, brave, dizzy Bear.
Clean, fluffy, wash-a-bye Bear.
But now you don't look like Bear.
You don't smell like Bear.
You don't taste like Bear.
And you don't feel like Bear.
Come on, Bear, I know what to do.
Back through all our teatime fun.
Every smear and every crumb.
Back through noisy garden games.
Slippery slides and grassy stains.
Back through making things together.
Me and you for ever and ever.
Now you're my Bear again.
But Mummy says now I'm all smelly and full of bits
so I need a wash, too.
"Mummy," said Flora after her bath.
"Do you think Bear will still love me
"now that I'm all washed and clean?"
"Yes," said Mummy.
"And he always will."
That story was called Wash-A-Bye Bear.
And now it's time for you to find your favourite toy
and take it to bed for a big cuddly squeeze.
And I'll see you again soon for another bedtime story.
