CBeebies Bedtime Story.
Hello, I'm Charlie. Are you almost ready for a bedtime story?
Well, that's good. Because tonight's story is one of my favourites.
It's called The Crocodile Who Didn't Like Water
and it's by Gemma Merino.
Once upon a time, there was a little crocodile.
And this little crocodile didn't like water.
He longed to play with his brothers and sisters,
but they were far too busy with swim club.
And this little crocodile didn't like swim club.
What he really liked was climbing trees.
But, nobody else did.
It was lonely having nobody to play with.
So, the little crocodile made a decision.
He had saved up his money from the tooth fairy
and he knew exactly what to buy with it.
The next afternoon, he took his new rubber ring over to the water.
Today, he would play with his brothers and sisters!
But, he couldn't play ball...
..or swim underwater.
And, although climbing the ladder was fun,
he just didn't want to jump!
But, he didn't want to be alone.
So, he decided to try one last time.
two and a half...
This little crocodile definitely hated water!
It was cold, it was wet, and it was embarrassing.
But then, something strange happened.
His nose began to tickle.
And the tickle grew...
This little crocodile didn't like water
because he wasn't a crocodile at all.
He was a dragon!
And this little dragon wasn't born to swim.
He was born to breathe fire.
And he was born to fly.
That story was called The Crocodile Who Didn't Like Water.
I'm glad that our friend found out who he really was.
Dragons aren't very good at swimming.
But, they are excellent at flying.
Now, it's time for you to get tucked up in bed.
Perhaps you'll dream about soaring through the sky,
just like our dragon friend.
I hope you sleep well.
I'll see you again soon for another bedtime story.
