It's Driver Dan's Story Train!
-Hello, Driver Dan!
# Which of our friends are we going to see?
# Which of our friends do you think it will be?
# Climb aboard and travel with me
# All aboard the Story Train!
# All aboard the Story Train. #
Twinkle can see some of our Story Train friends.
Can you see who they are?
I can see the Counting Sheep.
It looks like they're playing. There's Tallulah.
You're right. It is the Counting Sheep and Tallulah.
Let's go and say hello.
-You-hoo! Driver Dan.
Hello, Counting Sheep. Oh, you are noisy today, Counting Sheep.
I know. They won't play nicely together.
We tried playing catch and hide and seek.
-They're just making lots and lots of noise.
We are going to try follow the leader next.
Follow me, Sheep, this way. Oh, you can't all go first.
You have to follow me one by one. Let's try it again.
Stop! It's supposed to be follow the leader, not twirl the leader!
Why don't we climb aboard the Story Train
and find something for the sheep to play nicely together?
Oh, yes, please, Driver Dan.
We're all hooked up. Twinkle, are we ready?
-Are you ready too?
-Then let's go.
-All aboard the Story Train!
Twinkle, have you spotted someone? I can't see who. Can you?
-Look there, what are those?
-One, two, three blocks.
I think Bippity made them.
-There's his carriage and makerer.
-And there's Bippity.
You're right, it is Bippity.
Let's see what he's doing with those blocks.
-Bip, bip. Hello, everyone.
Bip, bip, what's the matter with the Counting Sheep?
-They won't play together nicely.
-I made some new balls for Loopy.
Maybe they can play with them.
They could try. Where are they?
There, bippity, three balls.
I've never seen square balls before. I like them.
I made a hoop for Loopy too.
Oh, I've never seen a square hoop before either.
THEY ALL LAUGH
Oh, dear. The hoop's not big enough for Number One.
How are we going to get him out?
Oh, Counting Sheep!
This is no time to squabble again.
I don't think they're squabbling. Look.
Well done, Counting Sheep!
At last, they did something nicely together.
Wahey! Bip bippity bip.
I've got an idea, Counting Sheep.
There's something else you can do together.
Ta-da! Its an obstacle course for the Counting Sheep.
Line up at the start.
Perhaps Twinkle could show the sheep what to do.
It's a race. First, you zig-zag around the blocks.
Then you go through the hoop, like Twinkle did,
except for Number One. You can go round.
Then run to the finish line.
The winner is the one who crosses the line first.
-Are you ready?
Wait for Twinkle's whistle. Ready, get set...
Go on, Number Five, you can do it.
You all won!
Well done for learning to play together so nicely.
And helping Number Five. Well done, everyone.
And I know something else we can all do together.
It's time to go to Story Corner on the Story Train.
We're all hooked up, Twinkle. Ready to go?
Are you ready too? Then let's go!
All aboard the Story Train! It's time for a story!
I think it will be about playing games.
-Maybe a race.
-Or naughty sheep!
SHEEP BAA, BIPPITY BIPS
-Is everyone ready for a story?
-Yes, Driver Dan.
Is it going to be a sheepy story?
Hee-hee-hee. Maybe. I know just the book.
Is everybody settled down and ready to listen?
-And all of you, ready to listen?
This story is called Follow Closely,
written by Lou Kuenzler with pictures by Jared Chapman.
It was time for the sheep to find some juicy fresh grass.
"Follow closely", warned Mum, as the sheep bounced over the rocks
and down the mountain.
Luca, the littlest lamb, joined the back of the line.
Number Five, you're the littlest too.
They hadn't gone far when Luca saw a marvellous flash of bright orange.
"Wow, what's that?" he wondered, and skipped off to have a look.
-What was it, Driver Dan?
-Let's read and find out.
Far below, a butterfly was flitter fluttering down a steep, mossy path.
"Follow closely, Luca," warned Mum.
"Yes, Mum," said Luca, and he joined the flock again.
Soon after, Luca saw a flash of bright blue on the grey rocks.
"What's that?" he wondered, and skipped off to look.
Oh, no, Luca is going away from his mum and dad again.
Beneath him, a butterfly flit-flit floated high above a waterfall,
but Dad shook his head crossly.
"Follow closely, Luca," he said.
"Yes, Dad," said Luca, and he joined the others again.
Then Luca saw a flash of bright yellow between the dark trees.
A beautiful butterfly fluttered her wings.
This time, Luca just couldn't resist.
He followed her as she wound her way, deeper and darker
-and further into a forest.
You're right, Counting Sheep, Luca was silly to wander away.
Before long, Luca was lost. "Oh-oh," said Luca.
"Mum?" he called and he tried to go back to the flock,
but the flock was gone.
"Er, Dad?" he called, but he was lost in the wood.
Bip bip. I hope he will be all right.
Suddenly, he saw a flash of brilliant white in the darkness.
"Wow, what was that?" he wondered. There it was again.
It was Mum and Dad - they'd found him.
Phew. Thank goodness.
"Sorry," said Luca, "I really will follow closely this time.
So Luca stayed safely at the front of the flock
as the sheep wound round the mountain,
splashed through the waterfall
and balanced along the narrow path.
All the way to a beautiful meadow.
It does sound like fun, doesn't it?
"Wowee," said Luca.
The meadow was full of fresh grass and spring flowers and...
fantastic flittering fluttering butterflies.
"Yippee!" said Luca, and he jumped and skipped
as he chased the butterflies around the meadow.
Flitter, flutter, float.
The end. Did you all enjoy the story?
Yes, and I'm glad Luca listened to his mum and dad at the end.
Now it's your turn. Which bit did you like best?
It's time to show me the story.
We're off to find some juicy grass with the sheep.
Wow, look at the fluttering butterfly.
Oh, no, Luca's lost.
I can't see Mum and Dad anywhere.
Hello? We're calling to the flock.
-We're over here!
-Where is everyone?
We've found Luca's mum and dad.
-Here they are. Let's go.
-Wow, look at the view.
-The meadow is beautiful.
We're fluttery butterflies.
Well done, great storytelling.
I was right, it was a story about sheep.
They all played so well together in the end,
they deserved a sheepy story.
I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did. But it's time to go.
Bye, everyone. It's time to go.
But let's come back soon, because we all love stories.
-Bye, Driver Dan!
I like stories about space travel.
Stories about friends are the best.
My favourite stories are about haunted houses.
Driver Dan and a loveable cast of animated friends go on an exciting journey to Story Corner. Bippity's new invention gives Driver Dan a great idea for a counting sheep competition. Featuring the story Follow Closely.
