CBeebies Bedtime Story.
Hello, my name's Tom.
Do you like the winter?
I like the winter,
because you can drink hot chocolate and wear scarves
and snuggle up inside out of the cold.
I'm about to tell you a story about that funny witch, Winnie.
She didn't like winter very much, at all.
The story's called, Winnie In Winter.
Winnie The Witch looked out of her window and shivered.
Her garden was covered in snow.
Her pond was covered in ice.
Icicles hung from the rooftops.
"I'm tired of winter," said Winnie.
Wilbur came in through the cat flap.
His feet were wet and his whiskers were frozen.
Wilbur was tired of winter too.
Suddenly, Winnie had an idea.
She stopped what she was doing,
took down her big book of spells and read it, carefully.
She put on her woolly coat, her hat, her snow boots,
her gloves and her scarf.
She picked up her wand and she went outside.
Wilbur already had a fur coat on, so he went outside too.
He thought something exciting might happen and he wanted to watch.
Winnie shut her eyes, then she stood on tiptoe, counted to ten,
waved her wand five times and shouted, "Abracadabra!"
And something magical happened.
Above Winnie's house, the sun shone brightly,
the sky was deep blue.
All the snow had disappeared.
It was no longer winter at Winnie's house,
it was sunny summer.
Winnie took off her woolly coat, her hat, her snow boots,
her gloves and her scarf.
She got her deckchair and went out in the garden to sit in the sun.
"This is lovely," said Winnie.
"Summer is much nicer."
Wilbur lay down in the sun and purred.
"This is lovely," he thought.
"Summer IS much nicer than winter."
All over the garden, little animals were waking up.
They had been having their winter sleep and they were very cross.
They came out into the garden,
"It's too early for summer," they grumbled.
"We want to go back to sleep."
The flowers had been asleep under the snow.
They woke up and began to grow.
Up came the leaves and then the flowers,
but the sun was too hot for them.
Their heads began to droop.
All the lovely flowers were dying.
Winnie was worried.
The animals and the flowers didn't like her lovely summer.
Then, she heard a very strange noise.
Winnie turned round and there behind her was a great crowd of people.
They were running along the road towards her house.
They crowded into her garden.
They took off THEIR coats, THEIR boots and THEIR scarves.
Then, they sat in the sunshine.
They walked on Winnie's flowers.
They put orange peel on Winnie's grass.
They paddled in Winnie's pond.
Soon, there was no room for Winnie and Wilbur in the garden.
They went inside and looked out of the window.
The noise was horrible, the mess was horrible.
Winnie's lovely summer was horrible.
Then, Winnie heard another strange noise.
A tinkling noise.
Somebody was selling ice creams in her garden!
Winnie was furious.
She grabbed her wand, rushed outside,
stamped her foot, shut her eyes,
counted to ten, waved her wand
and shouted, "AB-A-RA-CA-DA-BA-RA!"
The sun disappeared, the blue sky disappeared
and the snow began to fall.
The people put on their coats, boots,
gloves and their scarves and rushed home.
The animals went to finish their winter sleep,
the flowers went back under the ground to wait for spring.
Winnie and Wilbur went back inside.
Winnie made a cup of hot chocolate and toasted a muffin.
Wilbur had a saucer of warm milk.
Then, Winnie snuggled into bed.
Wilbur curled up at the foot of the bed and purred.
"This is warm and cosy," said Winnie.
"Winter is lovely, too."
And that story was called, Winnie In Winter.
I think it's time for me to go inside and warm up.
And it's time you snuggled down
in your nice, warm bed and went to sleep.
I'll see you soon for another story.
