Hello, I'm Sam and I absolutely love Christmas, don't you?

0:00:060:00:10

Oh, you'll like this then, cos I'm going to read you

0:00:100:00:14

a story about somebody very special.

0:00:140:00:16

The story is called Careful, Santa!

0:00:160:00:19

And it's written by Julie Sykes with pictures by Tim Warnes.

0:00:190:00:23

It was Christmas Eve and Santa was loading presents onto his sleigh.

0:00:260:00:31

Santa's little mouse was helping too.

0:00:310:00:34

Whoosh! A gust of wind blew Santa's beard

0:00:350:00:38

straight in his face!

0:00:380:00:40

"Ho-ho-ho!" he chuckled.

0:00:400:00:42

"I can't see what I'm doing!"

0:00:420:00:45

"Careful, Santa!" warned Santa's cat.

0:00:450:00:48

"You mustn't lose that sack of presents."

0:00:480:00:50

"That would never do," Santa agreed,

0:00:500:00:53

as he carefully stored everything away.

0:00:530:00:56

Santa helped his little mouse climb aboard the sleigh.

0:00:560:01:00

"Hold on tight!" he boomed. "We're off!"

0:01:000:01:04

It was a wild and windy night.

0:01:040:01:06

"Oh, my!" shouted Santa, as the sleigh rocked this way and that.

0:01:060:01:11

Suddenly, the sack of presents began to move.

0:01:110:01:14

"Careful, Santa!" called Santa's little mouse.

0:01:140:01:18

"Mind that sack!" But Santa wasn't quick enough.

0:01:180:01:21

The sack slid across the sleigh and toppled overboard.

0:01:210:01:25

"Stop!" cried Santa in alarm.

0:01:250:01:28

"Down, Reindeer, down! I've lost all of the presents."

0:01:280:01:32

The reindeer struggled against the wind

0:01:320:01:35

and landed as gently as they could.

0:01:350:01:37

"Careful, Santa!" they shouted. But it was too late.

0:01:370:01:42

"Whoops!" cried Santa landing on his bottom.

0:01:420:01:46

Santa scrambled to his feet.

0:01:460:01:48

The presents were scattered far and wide and he hurried to pick them up.

0:01:480:01:52

He didn't notice the frozen pond.

0:01:520:01:54

"Whee!" cried Santa,

0:01:540:01:57

as he slid across the ice towards the duck house.

0:01:570:02:00

"Careful, Santa!" quacked the ducks, "You nearly squashed us!"

0:02:000:02:05

"How awful!" said Santa, as he gathered up the presents.

0:02:050:02:09

"Sorry about that. Has anyone seen my sack?"

0:02:090:02:13

"Here it is," chatted a squirrel from high in a tree.

0:02:140:02:17

Santa bravely climbed up, but before he knew it,

0:02:170:02:21

he was well and truly stuck.

0:02:210:02:23

"Oh, help!" he cried.

0:02:230:02:26

"Careful, Santa!" called the squirrel.

0:02:260:02:29

"I'm trying to be careful," said Santa, as he struggled to get free.

0:02:290:02:34

Very, very slowly, Santa climbed back down again,

0:02:340:02:37

dropping some presents as he went.

0:02:370:02:40

In the playground, a few presents were lying under the swings.

0:02:400:02:44

Santa put them into his sack, then he spotted some more on the slide.

0:02:440:02:48

"Whoosh!" cried Santa, as he whizzed down the slide.

0:02:480:02:53

"Careful, Santa, you're going too fast!" warned Santa's cat.

0:02:530:02:57

"Eeek! I can't stop!" said Santa, as he zoomed towards the snowman.

0:02:570:03:04

"Sorry, Snowman, I didn't mean to bump you," Santa said,

0:03:040:03:08

as he dusted himself down

0:03:080:03:10

and popped the last of the presents into his sack.

0:03:100:03:13

"That's it," he boomed, "it's time to deliver these presents.

0:03:130:03:17

"Ready, Mouse?"

0:03:170:03:19

But where was Mouse? Santa couldn't see her anywhere.

0:03:190:03:22

"Oh, dear!" he cried in alarm.

0:03:220:03:25

"First I lose my sack of presents and now I've lost my little mouse.

0:03:250:03:30

"This will never do."

0:03:300:03:32

The ducks, the squirrel and Santa's cat all crowded round.

0:03:320:03:36

"Don't worry, Santa," they chatted.

0:03:360:03:38

"She can't have gone far. We'll help you look for her."

0:03:380:03:42

Everyone looked for Mouse.

0:03:420:03:44

She wasn't in the duck house, she wasn't at the swings,

0:03:440:03:48

she wasn't near the slide, or behind the snowman.

0:03:480:03:52

Just then, Santa heard a familiar squeak.

0:03:520:03:55

He shone his torch upwards.

0:03:550:03:58

And there was Mouse, hanging from a branch in a tree.

0:03:580:04:01

"Careful," warned Santa, "it's far too windy to play up there.

0:04:010:04:06

"That branch doesn't look too safe to me."

0:04:060:04:09

But Mouse wasn't playing.

0:04:090:04:11

"I'm stuck!" she squeaked.

0:04:110:04:13

"Please get me down."

0:04:130:04:15

Quickly, Santa took off his jacket and spread it out on the ground.

0:04:150:04:19

Everyone gathered round and held the coat like a trampoline.

0:04:190:04:23

"Hold on tight, everyone, and don't let go!" said Santa.

0:04:230:04:27

"Ready, Mouse? One, two, three, jump!"

0:04:270:04:32

Mouse jumped and, with a bounce and a plop,

0:04:320:04:35

landed safely on Santa's coat.

0:04:350:04:37

"Hooray!" cheered Santa.

0:04:370:04:39

"Thank you, everyone."

0:04:390:04:42

It was time to go. Santa and Mouse hurried aboard their sleigh.

0:04:420:04:47

"Reindeer, up, up and away!" cried Santa.

0:04:470:04:51

Whoosh, blew the wind!

0:04:510:04:53

"Careful, Santa!" called everyone,

0:04:530:04:55

as the sleigh rocked this way and that.

0:04:550:04:58

"Look after that mouse and hold on tight to that sack!"

0:04:580:05:02

Thank goodness Santa and his animal friends were there to save the day.

0:05:030:05:08

Sometimes, you really do need a little help from your friends.

0:05:080:05:12

Now, snuggle up, get cosy, and drift off to sleep.

0:05:120:05:15

Night-night and merry Christmas!
