CBeebies Bedtime Story.
Hello, I'm Justin.
Tiger and I are excited about tonight's Bedtime Story.
It's all about a very unusual family.
It's called My Family Is A Zoo
and is written by K.A. Gerrard with pictures by Emma Dodd.
My Daddy has an elephant he got when he was three.
It travels with us everywhere. It's quite a sight to see.
Me, I have my big, brown bear.
Surprise, his name is Teddy!
And whatever the adventure, he is there waiting and ready.
Today we're going for a drive.
To where, I cannot say.
We should arrive by lunchtime with some stops along the way.
Meet my sister and the whale that she swims with in the ocean.
It's big and blue and blubbery
and smells of suntan lotion!
Here comes my older brother with his purple dinosaur.
They may not seem ferocious, but you should hear them roar.
Look, my cousin's kangaroo has a switch that makes it hop.
Perhaps the switch has broken. The hopping just won't stop!
Wup! Wup! Boing! Boing! Boing! Boing! Boing! Boing! Whoa!
There's my uncle and his penguin which he once left on the bus.
It travelled round for months before returning home to us.
My auntie owns a monkey...
..with sticky-out ears.
She bought it on her holiday. She just loves her souvenirs.
Grandma's brought her bunny whose coat is bald and worn.
It's been loved and hugged and cuddled
since the day that she was born.
Grandpa's got his tiger
who once slept in their bed
till Grandma put her foot down.
Now it lives in Grandpa's shed.
Even Boomer has a puppy...
..that he carries in his jaws and every time he goes to sleep
he hugs it with his paws.
All right, all right.
Now we're all together with barely room to spare.
Can't wait to see if Mummy likes these brand-new polar bears.
We make a strange menagerie as we pile out two-by-two.
We're not so much a family, more a family zoo.
At last we have arrived,
me, Ted and all the others
and just why have we come here?
To meet my baby brothers.
What a big and busy family.
Just imagine taking a drive with an elephant in the car.
Must be quite a squeeze.
Well, now it's time for you to squeeze into your bed,
cuddle your favourite toy animal and sleep tight.
I'll see you again very soon for another Bedtime Story.
