Hi, there. I'm Jessica.
Welcoming to the opening ceremony of the Frog Olympics.
As you can see, frogs from all over the land
have gathered here for this special event,
in the hope that they might win a shiny gold medal like mine.
Tonight's Bedtime Story is called The Frog Olympics
and is written by Brian Moses, with illustrations by Amy Husband.
Are you ready?
Great! On your marks,
The news spread quickly, the word went round,
from lakes and ditch, across boggy ground.
To garden ponds and further still,
as an audience gathered on the side of the hill
for the Frog Olympics!
And frogs of every colour and size
watched the events through big, bulgy eyes.
There were frogs that had swum from across the sea,
there were tree frogs peeping from every tree
at the Frog Olympics!
There were medals for tongues that could catch most flies,
and the frog that hopped away with first prize
was an elderly frog,
whose tongue when uncurled could stretch halfway round the world,
at the Frog Olympics!
There were medals for winning the three-legged frog
and for jumping in and out of a bog.
There was leapfrogging streams, from bank to bank,
and skilful pole vaulting over a plank...
..at the Frog Olympics!
Then to celebrate the end of the Games, a torch was lit
and they followed the flames
to a stream where the final event took place,
a fast and furious tadpole race, at the Frog Olympics!
And, oh, those leaps that were so fantastic,
from frogs that must have had legs of elastic.
Well, everyone agreed that one day soon,
they might see a frog jumping over the moon.
Well, a cow did it once, or so they say,
so frogs keep practising every day.
What a brilliant story! I would love to see a frog jumping over the moon.
And after all that exercise and excitement,
this little frog looks like he's ready for bed
and I'm sure you are too.
Maybe you'll dream of winning a gold medal one day.
I'll see you for another Bedtime Story very soon. Good night.
