Hi, there. I'm Jessica.

0:00:060:00:09

Welcoming to the opening ceremony of the Frog Olympics.

0:00:090:00:12

As you can see, frogs from all over the land

0:00:120:00:15

have gathered here for this special event,

0:00:150:00:17

in the hope that they might win a shiny gold medal like mine.

0:00:170:00:21

Tonight's Bedtime Story is called The Frog Olympics

0:00:240:00:27

and is written by Brian Moses, with illustrations by Amy Husband.

0:00:270:00:32

Are you ready?

0:00:320:00:34

Great! On your marks,

0:00:340:00:36

get set,

0:00:360:00:38

go!

0:00:380:00:39

The news spread quickly, the word went round,

0:00:400:00:43

from lakes and ditch, across boggy ground.

0:00:430:00:48

To garden ponds and further still,

0:00:480:00:51

as an audience gathered on the side of the hill

0:00:510:00:54

for the Frog Olympics!

0:00:540:00:56

And frogs of every colour and size

0:00:560:00:59

watched the events through big, bulgy eyes.

0:00:590:01:03

There were frogs that had swum from across the sea,

0:01:030:01:07

there were tree frogs peeping from every tree

0:01:070:01:11

at the Frog Olympics!

0:01:110:01:13

There were medals for tongues that could catch most flies,

0:01:130:01:18

and the frog that hopped away with first prize

0:01:180:01:22

was an elderly frog,

0:01:220:01:24

whose tongue when uncurled could stretch halfway round the world,

0:01:240:01:30

at the Frog Olympics!

0:01:300:01:32

There were medals for winning the three-legged frog

0:01:320:01:35

and for jumping in and out of a bog.

0:01:350:01:38

There was leapfrogging streams, from bank to bank,

0:01:400:01:44

and skilful pole vaulting over a plank...

0:01:440:01:47

..at the Frog Olympics!

0:01:480:01:51

Then to celebrate the end of the Games, a torch was lit

0:01:520:01:57

and they followed the flames

0:01:570:02:00

to a stream where the final event took place,

0:02:000:02:02

a fast and furious tadpole race, at the Frog Olympics!

0:02:020:02:07

And, oh, those leaps that were so fantastic,

0:02:090:02:13

from frogs that must have had legs of elastic.

0:02:130:02:17

Well, everyone agreed that one day soon,

0:02:170:02:20

they might see a frog jumping over the moon.

0:02:200:02:23

Well, a cow did it once, or so they say,

0:02:260:02:29

so frogs keep practising every day.

0:02:290:02:31

What a brilliant story! I would love to see a frog jumping over the moon.

0:02:350:02:40

Wouldn't you?

0:02:400:02:42

And after all that exercise and excitement,

0:02:420:02:45

this little frog looks like he's ready for bed

0:02:450:02:48

and I'm sure you are too.

0:02:480:02:50

Maybe you'll dream of winning a gold medal one day.

0:02:500:02:54

I'll see you for another Bedtime Story very soon. Good night.
