What's that, Big Ted? Buttons wanted to give Little Ted a hug?
And he didn't want one? Hello, I'm Katy.
Big Teddy was just telling me
that Little Teddy really doesn't like hugs any more.
Do you like hugs? I do. How about kisses?
Well, there's a little boy called Bernard in tonight's bedtime story
and he is tired of far too many kisses.
The story is called No More Kisses For Bernard
and it's by Niki Daly.
Everyone loved Bernard.
His aunts Lulu, Lola, Lily and Tallulah loved him to bits.
Whenever they visited, they covered poor Bernard from head to toe
with squeaky sweet hello kisses, lipsticky red and glow kisses,
sneaky on the nose kisses and smoochy got-to-go kisses.
It drove Bernard bonkers.
"No more kisses!" said Bernard.
"Oh, but you're my puffin muffin," said Aunt Lulu.
"You're my Bernie-wernie," said Aunt Lola.
"You're my sweetum snooky-pooky-wooky," said Aunt Lily.
"Kissy-kissy," said Aunt Tallulah.
"No, no, no!" yelled Bernard and he hid his lips away.
After their visits, Mama had to wash a mess of kisses off Bernard's face.
"Maybe a hello and goodbye kiss is all you really need," said Mama.
But Bernard said, "No more kisses," and he meant it.
On his birthday when his kissy-kissy aunts arrived,
Bernard was prepared.
"Happy birthday!" they sang and they gave him his presents.
Then they lined up for their
"thank you very much for my lovely birthday present" kiss.
Instead, Bernard thanked them politely
then he quickly pulled down his visor.
The aunts looked awfully disappointed,
so Papa suggested a hug.
Bernard thought for a while then opened his arms.
"Oh, I love huggy-wuggles!" squealed Aunt Lulu.
"Blessums, Bernie-wernie," whispered Aunt Lola.
"Come on, give your auntie a kiss," purred Aunt Tallulah.
"Squeezy-weezy snooky-wooky," said Aunt Lily.
Before you could say "kissy-kissy," Aunt Tallulah swung open his visor
and stuck a fat smudgy one right on his nose.
That did it.
"No more kisses!" wailed Bernard, bursting into tears.
"When someone says no, they mean no," Aunt Lulu scolded Aunt Tallulah.
"Children need to be respected," said Aunt Lola.
"You're always breaking rules, Tallulah," said Aunt Lily.
"I know, I'm sorry, Bernard.
"May I have a little huggles?" said Aunt Tallulah.
"No hugs!" wailed Bernard frowning, and he meant it.
The aunts looked too sad for words.
They loved him more than all the hugs,
kisses and birthday wishes in the world.
"I love you more than words can say,"
said Aunt Tallulah, blowing Bernard a kiss.
"No kisses!" yelled Bernard, ducking out of the way.
"How about a paper kiss, then?" asked Aunt Tallulah.
"What's a paper kiss?" asked Bernard.
"Give me a piece of paper and I'll show you," said Aunt Tallulah.
Bernard gave Aunt Tallulah a page from his rainbow pad.
He watched Aunt Tallulah take out her lipstick
and draw six red kisses on the pink paper.
Then, using Bernard's scissors, she cut hearts around the kisses.
"There," said Aunt Tallulah.
"With all my love and a kiss for each of your birthdays."
Bernard loved his paper kisses.
Now everyone wanted to cut out frilly paper hearts
and draw kisses for the birthday boy.
Bernard shared his rainbow paper, felt-tip pens, glitter glues
and his fancy scissors.
At the end of the party, there were more than enough paper hearts
and kisses for everyone, but by the time the aunts left
Bernard was covered from head to toe in bits of rainbow pad,
glitter glue and felt-tip markers, so Mama gave him a bath.
When he was squeaky clean and ready for bed, she said,
"Now, how about a special kiss for your Mama?"
Bernard thought for a while and then he gave his Mama and Papa
a nice and simple, peck on the dimple,
good night sleep tight Bernard kiss.
That story was called No More Kisses for Bernard.
Can I give you a nice, simple, peck on the dimple good night kiss please?
Yeah? Oh, good.
I'll see you soon for another bedtime story. Night-night.
So you see, Big Teddy, sometimes people don't like hugs
and maybe Little Ted will like hugs again one day...
