Hello there. My name's Mark,

0:00:060:00:09

and I've got a lovely bedtime story for you all about a little zebra.

0:00:090:00:14

It's called My Grandparents Love Me.

0:00:140:00:17

It's by Claire Freedman with pictures by Judi Abbot.

0:00:170:00:21

I'm off to Gran and Grandpa's with a big smile on my face.

0:00:220:00:26

I always feel wrapped up in love when I stay at their place.

0:00:260:00:30

Gran's big welcome hugs are warm.

0:00:300:00:33

Whee! Grandpa swings me round.

0:00:330:00:37

He laughs, "You're getting heavy!" as my feet fly off the ground.

0:00:370:00:43

My room at Gran and Grandpa's house has special toys there, too.

0:00:430:00:47

Gran smiles. "Have you looked on your bed?

0:00:470:00:50

"You might find something new." Woohoo!

0:00:500:00:54

Gran's baking is delicious. Yum!

0:00:540:00:58

And when I munch and scoff more cakes than Mum would let me eat,

0:00:580:01:01

Gran never tells me off.

0:01:010:01:04

Out at the funfair's splish-splash ride, they don't mind getting wet.

0:01:050:01:11

Then off we go for ice creams...

0:01:110:01:13

HE SLURPS

0:01:130:01:14

..the biggest we can get!

0:01:140:01:17

I don't know how Gran's handbag, which doesn't look that full,

0:01:170:01:21

has all we need for our day out. It must be magical!

0:01:210:01:26

It's great to help in Grandpa's shed. We build amazing things.

0:01:270:01:32

Gran hasn't seen our rocket. Shh!

0:01:320:01:35

It's red with silver wings.

0:01:350:01:39

Sometimes, my gran and grandpa will come to visit me.

0:01:390:01:44

We all go out together then. It's so much fun. Yippee!

0:01:440:01:48

Gran says I'll be a champion. She's teaching me to swim.

0:01:490:01:55

With her beside me, I'm not scared. Now I can jump right in.

0:01:550:02:00

Back home, we all dress up and dance.

0:02:020:02:05

Gran puts loud music on whilst funny Grandpa jokes about

0:02:050:02:09

and does the steps all wrong.

0:02:090:02:12

"Let's read THIS story, Gran," I say.

0:02:120:02:15

We snuggle in a chair.

0:02:150:02:18

Gran's silly voices make me laugh, pretending she's a bear.

0:02:180:02:22

HE ROARS

0:02:220:02:24

Warm from my bath and tucked in bed, I yawn. "I've had such fun."

0:02:240:02:30

"Us, too." They smile and kiss.

0:02:300:02:33

"Night-night. We love you, little one."

0:02:330:02:36

How special, to be so loved!

0:02:390:02:41

I'm sure you've got someone who loves you very much, too.

0:02:410:02:45

Be sure to give them a great big zebra squeeze.

0:02:450:02:50

I'll be back to read you another bedtime story very soon but,

0:02:500:02:54

for now, goodnight. Sleep tight.
