0:07:020:07:05

Oh, hello. I'm Adjoa.

0:07:090:07:11

I'm looking for my bear. Have you seen him?

0:07:110:07:15

He's about this big and light brown with a really sweet face.

0:07:150:07:19

Hmm...

0:07:190:07:21

There he is.

0:07:210:07:23

Thank you for helping me find him.

0:07:230:07:25

Come on, you.

0:07:250:07:27

Well, tonight's bedtime story is all about Flora and her bear.

0:07:270:07:33

He has a soapy, spinny adventure

0:07:330:07:35

and he comes out looking a bit different from how he started.

0:07:350:07:39

Do you want to hear all about it?

0:07:390:07:41

Do you?

0:07:410:07:43

Great. Well, if you're sitting comfortably, I'll begin.

0:07:430:07:48

The story is called Wash-A-Bye Bear.

0:07:480:07:51

And it's by Thomas Docherty.

0:07:510:07:53

"I love you, Bear," said Flora one morning.

0:07:540:07:58

"But Mummy says you are smelly and full of bits and you need a wash.

0:07:580:08:03

"So you're going in the washing machine with all the dirty socks.

0:08:030:08:09

"Don't worry, Bear, I'm going to be right here waiting for you.

0:08:090:08:13

"Be brave, Bear!"

0:08:130:08:16

Wash away soggy breakfast smears.

0:08:160:08:20

Wash away melted ice cream tears.

0:08:200:08:24

Wash away memories of the beach.

0:08:240:08:27

Birthday cake and sticky sweets.

0:08:280:08:31

Wash away spatters of winter showers.

0:08:330:08:37

Wash away mud and rain-soaked hours.

0:08:370:08:42

Wash away scrapes from climbing trees.

0:08:420:08:46

Hide and seek in autumn leaves.

0:08:460:08:51

Wash away glittery glue from clothes.

0:08:510:08:56

Wash away paint from paws and nose.

0:08:560:09:00

Wash away furious felt-tip scribbles.

0:09:020:09:06

Splats and splots and drips

0:09:060:09:10

and dribbles and...stop.

0:09:100:09:14

Poor, brave, dizzy Bear.

0:09:160:09:19

Clean, fluffy, wash-a-bye Bear.

0:09:190:09:22

But now you don't look like Bear.

0:09:220:09:25

You don't smell like Bear.

0:09:250:09:27

You don't taste like Bear.

0:09:270:09:29

And you don't feel like Bear.

0:09:290:09:31

Come on, Bear, I know what to do.

0:09:330:09:35

Back through all our teatime fun.

0:09:370:09:39

Every smear and every crumb.

0:09:410:09:45

Back through noisy garden games.

0:09:450:09:49

Slippery slides and grassy stains.

0:09:490:09:54

Back through making things together.

0:09:540:09:58

Me and you for ever and ever.

0:09:580:10:03

And...stop.

0:10:030:10:05

Now you're my Bear again.

0:10:050:10:08

But Mummy says now I'm all smelly and full of bits

0:10:080:10:13

so I need a wash, too.

0:10:130:10:15

"Mummy," said Flora after her bath.

0:10:170:10:21

"Do you think Bear will still love me

0:10:210:10:23

"now that I'm all washed and clean?"

0:10:230:10:27

"Yes," said Mummy.

0:10:270:10:29

"And he always will."

0:10:290:10:31

That story was called Wash-A-Bye Bear.

0:10:350:10:38

And now it's time for you to find your favourite toy

0:10:380:10:41

and take it to bed for a big cuddly squeeze.

0:10:410:10:45

And I'll see you again soon for another bedtime story.

0:10:450:10:50

Good night.
