Hello. I'm Maureen.

0:00:060:00:09

Do come closer.

0:00:090:00:10

And don't mind that polar bear.

0:00:100:00:13

She's very friendly.

0:00:130:00:14

Rather like the young cub in tonight's story.

0:00:160:00:19

It's called A Dot In The Snow.

0:00:190:00:21

It's written by Corrinne Averiss,

0:00:210:00:23

with pictures by Fiona Woodcock.

0:00:230:00:25

Miki wanted Mum to play in the snow,

0:00:270:00:31

not fish on the ice.

0:00:310:00:34

Snow was soft, and fishing looked hard.

0:00:360:00:40

Miki wasn't ready to dive,

0:00:420:00:44

so he scampered away,

0:00:440:00:46

up, up, up the snowy ridge,

0:00:460:00:49

and that's when he saw it.

0:00:490:00:51

A dot in the snow.

0:00:530:00:54

He raced to get a closer look.

0:00:560:00:59

The dot waved its paw.

0:01:030:01:05

SHE SNIFFS

0:01:060:01:08

Miki sniffed.

0:01:080:01:10

It smelled friendly.

0:01:100:01:12

He liked its twinkly face,

0:01:130:01:15

and the gurgling sound it made.

0:01:150:01:18

CHILD GURGLES

0:01:180:01:19

Did the dot want to play?

0:01:190:01:21

Yes, it did.

0:01:220:01:24

And then, suddenly, it didn't.

0:01:380:01:40

A red thing was missing from one of Dot's paws.

0:01:410:01:44

Miki raced back.

0:01:460:01:48

The ice went creak, crack.

0:01:480:01:50

CREAKING

0:01:500:01:51

The red thing fell into the sea!

0:01:510:01:54

Miki dived.

0:01:540:01:55

The deeper it sank,

0:01:550:01:56

the harder he paddled...

0:01:560:01:58

..until he caught it.

0:02:000:02:02

Now, the ice was breaking everywhere.

0:02:020:02:05

Miki showed the dot how to jump,

0:02:070:02:09

and together, they climbed up, up, up

0:02:090:02:13

to the place where they played.

0:02:130:02:15

But where had it gone?

0:02:170:02:18

Everything was white.

0:02:200:02:22

Everything except for a dot in the snow.

0:02:230:02:28

A mummy dot!

0:02:280:02:29

Two cold noses nudged goodbye,

0:02:310:02:34

and twinkly faces hugged hello.

0:02:340:02:37

Miki knew he would miss the dot,

0:02:380:02:42

but he missed his mum even more.

0:02:420:02:45

Paw after paw, slow through the snow,

0:02:460:02:51

Miki marched back to the ice.

0:02:510:02:54

"Mum! Where are you?"

0:02:540:02:58

A shape in the sea.

0:02:590:03:01

Could it really be...?

0:03:010:03:04

"Mum!"

0:03:050:03:07

No paddling left in little legs.

0:03:090:03:12

Mum swam Miki to a safer spot.

0:03:120:03:15

He wanted to tell her all about the dot.

0:03:160:03:20

But it would have to wait.

0:03:200:03:22

Miki dived deep, deep into sleep.

0:03:240:03:28

I hope you enjoyed that story as much as I did.

0:03:310:03:34

I'm happy that Miki and the dot found their mums in the end.

0:03:340:03:38

Aren't you?

0:03:380:03:40

And now, it's time for us to dive deep into sleep,

0:03:400:03:43

like Miki the polar bear.

0:03:430:03:45

Sleep tight.

0:03:450:03:47

Sleep tight.

0:03:480:03:49

Join Maureen Lipman for a heartwarming tale about a wintertime friendship between a little girl and a polar bear.
