CBeebies Bedtime Story.

0:00:030:00:05

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

0:00:070:00:10

Oh, bright green plant shoots.

0:00:120:00:14

What else can we see?

0:00:160:00:17

Oh, hello. I'm Anna.

0:00:170:00:19

I'm looking at the garden,

0:00:190:00:21

telling the animals everything that I can see.

0:00:210:00:24

Can you see out of your window?

0:00:240:00:27

Can you see the moon?

0:00:270:00:29

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

0:00:290:00:32

In tonight's Bedtime Story,

0:00:320:00:34

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

0:00:340:00:38

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

0:00:380:00:41

The story is by Jeanne Willis and Sarah Fox-Davies

0:00:410:00:44

and it's called Mole's Sunrise.

0:00:440:00:48

Vole got up just before dawn.

0:00:480:00:50

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

0:00:500:00:53

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

0:00:530:00:56

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

0:00:560:00:59

Mole had never seen the sunrise.

0:00:590:01:01

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

0:01:010:01:04

"Come with me," said Vole.

0:01:040:01:07

Off they went, hand in hand.

0:01:070:01:10

"Are we going very far?" asked Mole.

0:01:100:01:12

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

0:01:120:01:16

"Mind the tree root, Mole."

0:01:160:01:19

Mole felt the damp mist in his fur.

0:01:190:01:22

He heard the crackle of leaves under his feet.

0:01:220:01:26

Mole sniffed the air. He could smell the lake.

0:01:260:01:30

"We're here," he said.

0:01:300:01:32

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

0:01:320:01:35

"What others?" asked Mole."

0:01:350:01:37

There was Rabbit, Squirrel and Sparrow.

0:01:370:01:39

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

0:01:390:01:44

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

0:01:440:01:48

"I should say so," said Squirrel.

0:01:480:01:50

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

0:01:500:01:54

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

0:01:540:01:57

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

0:01:570:02:00

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

0:02:000:02:03

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

0:02:030:02:07

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

0:02:070:02:12

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

0:02:120:02:14

He wiped the yolk off his waistcoat.

0:02:140:02:18

The sun rose out of the lake.

0:02:180:02:20

"Now the clouds are like scoops

0:02:200:02:22

"of raspberry ice cream," said Rabbit.

0:02:220:02:24

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

0:02:240:02:28

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

0:02:280:02:34

The sun rose higher and higher.

0:02:340:02:36

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

0:02:360:02:40

Mole felt the shiny gold button on his waistcoat.

0:02:400:02:44

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

0:02:440:02:48

or so everybody said.

0:02:480:02:50

"It only looks as small as a button

0:02:500:02:52

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

0:02:520:02:54

Sparrow said the sun was hotter than the hottest fire -

0:02:540:02:58

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

0:02:580:03:01

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

0:03:010:03:05

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

0:03:050:03:10

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

0:03:120:03:18

"Thank you for showing it to me.

0:03:180:03:20

"I never knew it was so beautiful."

0:03:200:03:22

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

0:03:220:03:27

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

0:03:270:03:31

and it was even more beautiful than anyone could imagine.

0:03:310:03:36

That story was called Mole's Sunrise.

0:03:370:03:40

Wasn't the sunrise beautiful?

0:03:400:03:43

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

0:03:430:03:45

and dream about the raspberry ice cream swirling clouds

0:03:450:03:49

and the shiny gold button sun.

0:03:490:03:52

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

0:03:520:03:56

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

0:03:560:04:00

What can you see, Rabbit?

0:04:000:04:03
