# Time to call on Granny Murray

0:01:220:01:24

# She'd love to say hello to you... #

0:01:240:01:29

Me too!

0:01:290:01:32

Hello, honeypie.

0:01:320:01:35

Come away in and see who's at home today.

0:01:350:01:38

# Granny Murray's house has two at home to play

0:01:380:01:41

# Granny Murray's house is home to... #

0:01:410:01:43

Who's here today?

0:01:430:01:45

Well, we've got Ellie and we've got Sean.

0:01:450:01:48

Don't just sit there, my wee boiled eggs.

0:01:480:01:52

Come on, let's get moving.

0:01:520:01:54

What's on Granny Murray's shelves today?

0:01:540:01:58

Oh, a story book.

0:01:580:02:00

Have a wee seat.

0:02:000:02:02

Well, this is the story of The Tortoise And The Hare.

0:02:020:02:06

There were once two friends - a tortoise and a hare.

0:02:060:02:10

The hare was always showing off his long legs.

0:02:100:02:13

"I can run much faster than you," said the hare. "Oh, yeah?"

0:02:130:02:18

said the tortoise.

0:02:180:02:20

"On your marks, get set, go!"

0:02:200:02:23

-Go!

-The hare charged away and soon was out of sight,

0:02:230:02:27

but the tortoise slowly plodded on. The hare was so far in front

0:02:270:02:31

he decided to have a wee rest. So he lay down

0:02:310:02:35

and fell fast asleep.

0:02:350:02:38

But the tortoise just kept on plodding.

0:02:380:02:42

When the hare woke up, he saw that the tortoise was just about to cross

0:02:420:02:46

the finishing line. He tried to catch up, but it was too late.

0:02:460:02:51

"You only won because I fell asleep," said the hare.

0:02:510:02:55

"Oh, yeah?" said the tortoise.

0:02:550:02:58

Ha-ha-ha!

0:02:580:02:59

Well, we've got Ellie and Sean, but someone's missing from home today.

0:02:590:03:05

Ah, not any more. Who's coming home to Granny Murray?

0:03:070:03:11

Oh, yes, it's Rebecca with Mickey John.

0:03:110:03:15

Hello there.

0:03:150:03:17

Hello, Mickey John.

0:03:190:03:21

Hello, sweet cheeks.

0:03:210:03:23

-What have you been up to?

-We've been reading a story book.

0:03:250:03:29

Oh, what story is it?

0:03:290:03:31

-The Tortoise And The Hare.

-Oh, that's a belter!

0:03:310:03:35

-Good old plodding tortoise.

-Let's do something new.

0:03:350:03:39

Why not dress Claude up as a hoppy hare?

0:03:390:03:42

And I'll race you to the chairs.

0:03:420:03:44

Am I the tortoise or the...

0:03:440:03:46

hare? Looks like I'm the tortoise.

0:03:460:03:49

Blub, blub, blub.

0:03:490:03:51

-I won.

-And I'm last, oh!

0:03:510:03:53

You know, I really want to encourage the children to read more.

0:03:530:03:58

There's so many adventures to read about.

0:03:580:04:01

I'm having a book sale at school today for the children and parents

0:04:010:04:06

to raise money and encourage them to read more.

0:04:060:04:09

Where are you getting your books?

0:04:090:04:11

I've asked everyone to look on their bookshelves

0:04:110:04:15

and if they have two of the same book they can give it to the sale.

0:04:150:04:19

Very clever.

0:04:190:04:21

Hold on a second.

0:04:210:04:23

Now, let me see.

0:04:230:04:26

Ah, The Railway Children...

0:04:260:04:29

and, oh, those two there.

0:04:290:04:32

-Oh, fantastic!

-And this one too.

0:04:320:04:34

-There you are. Take them all.

-That's great, Granny Murray.

0:04:340:04:39

When I worked in the department store, when we did a stock-take,

0:04:390:04:44

the manager always said, "Spread it out and show it off."

0:04:440:04:48

-That way, you could see how many of everything we had.

-Well,

0:04:480:04:52

I know something you don't have two of. Claude - you've only one of him.

0:04:520:04:57

Ha-ha-ha!

0:04:570:04:59

-Oh, don't go running off anywhere, Claude.

-Or go racing tortoises.

0:04:590:05:04

I'd better be off.

0:05:040:05:06

Oh, thank you.

0:05:060:05:09

It's a badge. "I love books."

0:05:090:05:11

Thank you, sweetheart. Have fun with Granny Murray.

0:05:110:05:15

Come on, Mickey John.

0:05:150:05:17

Now remember,

0:05:210:05:22

spread it out and show it off.

0:05:220:05:26

Thanks, Granny Murray. See you later.

0:05:260:05:28

-Bye-bye, my darling. We'll be thinking of you.

-Me too!

0:05:280:05:32

Keep a wee eye on Mickey John, make sure he goes the right way to work.

0:05:320:05:37

Oh, I don't have much time. How can I speed across the river to work?

0:05:390:05:45

HOOTER BLARES That's right. Thanks.

0:05:450:05:47

# I'm in-in-in-in a hurry

0:05:470:05:49

# I need-need-need-need to speed to work

0:05:550:05:58

# Hurry, hurry, hurry down the river

0:05:590:06:01

# Splashing-splashing-splashing through the waves

0:06:010:06:05

# Winding, winding, winding drives the speed up

0:06:050:06:08

# Chugga-chugga-chugga slows us down

0:06:080:06:11

# Rocking rocking rocking Splashing splashing splashing

0:06:250:06:27

And hurry, hurry, hurry put my tie on.

0:06:300:06:33

All dressed and ready to go.

0:06:390:06:42

Ah, books. Books, books, books.

0:06:420:06:45

Special delivery for Mickey John.

0:06:460:06:48

-Who's there?

-It's me, Raymond.

-Oh!

0:06:480:06:52

-Oh, are these for my book sale?

-Yep. I can't wait, I love books!

-Me too.

0:06:520:06:56

-Got any favourites?

-Yes, adventure stories, like Treasure Island,

0:06:560:07:01

with Long John Silver. "A-ha, Jim lad, there be treasure here!"

0:07:010:07:05

-That's a great book.

-What about The Arabian Nights?

0:07:050:07:09

Yes, Aladdin and his flying carpet.

0:07:090:07:12

Hop on.

0:07:120:07:14

-Whee!

-Whee!

0:07:140:07:17

Wow, the desert goes on for miles and miles!

0:07:170:07:20

Wow, I can see the sultan's palace from here, all made of gold!

0:07:200:07:24

I hope I can pick up some great books at your book sale.

0:07:240:07:29

I'm sure you will, Raymond. My class will be here soon.

0:07:290:07:32

-Could you put those books in the cloakroom?

-Yes. Bye now.

-Bye.

0:07:320:07:37

Ah, your "I love books" badge is perfect, Rebecca.

0:07:370:07:41

I wonder what you're up to.

0:07:410:07:44

# I love to skip in Riverseafingal

0:07:440:07:46

# Riverseafingal by the sea

0:07:460:07:49

# I love to skip in Riverseafingal

0:07:490:07:52

# Riverseafingal, that's for me. #

0:07:520:07:55

I reckon these posters will let everyone know about our toy sale.

0:07:550:08:01

Let's stick them up. That's good, isn't it?

0:08:010:08:04

But I don't think we'll earn much with this dribble of toys.

0:08:040:08:09

-Do you?

-No.

-Why don't we go inside and find more toys to raise money

0:08:090:08:15

for your dad's library fund?

0:08:150:08:18

What are you doing now, Daddy?

0:08:220:08:25

-Does anybody here love books?

-I do!

0:08:250:08:28

-What have you got there, Rudi?

-A pile of audio books.

0:08:280:08:32

I've listened to them and need new ones.

0:08:320:08:35

-D'you want them for your book sale?

-Thanks.

0:08:350:08:39

You might find new ones at the book sale.

0:08:390:08:42

-Would you leave them in the cloakroom for me?

-No problem. See you later.

0:08:420:08:47

BELL RINGS There's the bell. Here's my class.

BELL RINGS Ah, lunch time. Remember, the book sale starts at two o'clock.

0:10:250:10:30

Hopefully, your mums and dads will buy you exciting new stories to read.

0:10:300:10:35

Right, off you go.

0:10:350:10:37

Oh, sandwiches!

0:10:410:10:44

Have I come at a bad moment?

0:10:440:10:47

-No, not at all, Tina. Come in.

-I've brought books for the book sale.

0:10:470:10:51

I'm really excited about it.

0:10:510:10:54

-I'm hoping to find a book I loved when I was wee.

-What book's that?

0:10:540:10:58

Magic Faraway Dream - just brilliant!

0:10:580:11:02

-Can you leave them in the cloakroom? The sale starts at 2pm.

-Gotcha!

0:11:020:11:07

-Bye!

-Bye-bye!

0:11:070:11:09

Ah, I wish you were coming to the book sale, Rebecca.

0:11:100:11:14

# I love to skip in Riverseafingal

0:11:140:11:18

# Riverseafingal, that's for me. #

0:11:180:11:20

-Have we got two of these?

-No.

-No, so we'll keep that.

0:11:220:11:25

Is there another one of those?

0:11:250:11:28

Where? ..So there is! Put one in the box.

0:11:280:11:31

Good girl.

0:11:310:11:33

-What about Mr Piggy? Oink! Oink!

-Yeah.

0:11:330:11:36

Put him in the box. That's the way.

0:11:360:11:39

-Dad will be pleased with us, won't he?

-Yeah.

0:11:390:11:43

-Oh!

-Ooh! Dr Doolittle?

0:11:500:11:53

-What's going on?

-Mickey John,

0:11:530:11:55

you could cause an accident with those books in the corridor.

0:11:550:12:00

-Oh, dear! I'm sorry, Dr Juno.

-Never mind. Where did my book go?

0:12:000:12:05

-Is this it?

-Yeah, that's my spare copy of Dr Doolittle.

0:12:050:12:08

-It's for your book sale.

-Thank you.

-You're welcome.

0:12:080:12:12

But we should move those books in here in case someone tumbles.

0:12:120:12:17

Right you are.

0:12:170:12:18

Ah, right. That's all the books in. Book sale starts soon.

0:12:310:12:35

Look at all the books I've got. I hope I sell them all.

0:12:350:12:39

Can I be your first customer?

0:12:390:12:41

The book sale starts at 2pm. OK. What book are you looking for?

0:12:410:12:45

-Have you got The Little Grey Rabbit?

-I think I saw that somewhere.

0:12:450:12:49

I've got it somewhere. The Little Grey Rabbit.

0:12:520:12:55

I can't wait any longer, Mickey John.

0:12:550:12:57

How about The Big Pink Elephant?

0:12:570:12:59

No, sorry. Look, I've got to go. My patients are waiting.

0:12:590:13:03

-Bye!

-Wait a minute, I'll find it in a minute.

0:13:030:13:06

Oh, dear! Bang goes my first customer.

0:13:060:13:09

Oh, hang on a minute. If Dr Juno can't find the book she wants,

0:13:090:13:13

how will my other customers manage?

0:13:130:13:16

I've got piles of books and no way of telling what they are.

0:13:160:13:20

I'm not at all ready. Where did the time go?

0:13:200:13:23

At 7 o'clock, I dropped Rebecca off at Granny Murray's.

0:13:230:13:26

She'd been reading the children a story - The Tortoise And The Hare.

0:13:260:13:31

The children dressed Claude up as a hare. I told Granny Murray

0:13:310:13:34

all about my book sale and she gave me some books to sell.

0:13:340:13:39

At 8 o'clock, I got to work. Raymond dropped off a pile of books.

0:13:390:13:44

He described the books he liked to read. They sounded fantastic.

0:13:440:13:48

At 9 o'clock, Rudi brought round audio books for the sale.

0:13:480:13:52

Then he added his books to the pile as the bell went and my class came.

0:13:520:13:57

12 o'clock, my class went for lunch, and Tina arrived with more books.

0:13:570:14:02

She explained about a book she'd read when she was little

0:14:020:14:06

about a magic faraway tree.

0:14:060:14:08

At one o'clock, a book flew into the classroom.

0:14:080:14:12

Dr Juno nearly tripped over the books outside.

0:14:120:14:16

So we moved them all into the classroom.

0:14:160:14:18

Dr Juno wanted to be my first customer,

0:14:180:14:21

but I couldn't find the book she wanted.

0:14:210:14:23

She had to go to work without it.

0:14:230:14:26

How will anyone find the book they want among these big piles?

0:14:260:14:30

Now, remember, spread it out and show it off.

0:14:300:14:35

Spread it out and show it off. Of course!

0:14:350:14:38

Instead of leaving the books piled up, I should spread them out

0:14:380:14:42

and show them off. Then the customers will know what they're buying.

0:14:420:14:47

It's a race against time!

0:14:470:14:48

# I gotta do it I gotta do it

0:14:480:14:51

# I gotta beat the clock before the chime

0:14:510:14:53

# I gotta sort it I gotta sort it

0:14:530:14:56

# I gotta do the job on time

0:14:560:14:58

# Like a busy bee I'm gonna beat that bong

Happy reading!

0:16:140:16:16

Oh! I wonder if you're busy, Rebecca?

They're going to buy something!

0:16:250:16:28

Thank you. Bye bye, darling!

0:16:280:16:30

-How exciting! Are you having fun, honey-pie?

-Yeah.

-Me, too.

0:16:300:16:35

Here's another customer! Hello!

0:16:350:16:38

Roll up! Roll up! Buy something from Granny Murray's toy store.

0:16:380:16:42

All proceeds go to the school library fund.

0:16:420:16:44

I hope we manage to sell everything before your dad collects you.

0:16:440:16:50

Mickey John, come away through.

0:17:000:17:03

-Look who's here, Rebecca.

-Hello, beautiful girl. Hey, how are you?

0:17:030:17:08

-Have you had a lovely time?

-Yes.

-You bet.

-Say thank you.

0:17:080:17:12

-Come here, darling.

-Thank you, Granny Murray.

-And from me too.

0:17:120:17:16

Your saying, "Spread it out and show it off" saved the day.

0:17:160:17:20

I'm glad to hear it. Come on, you two.

0:17:200:17:23

Home, home.

0:17:230:17:25

-Looking forward to next time.

-Me too. Come on, Rebecca.

0:17:270:17:31

Let's chat about our time away.

0:17:310:17:33

And I suppose you'll want me to tell you all about my time too!

0:17:330:17:38

# Well, there was... waving, greeting, hello, meeting

0:17:380:17:41

# Bye-bye, waking, dozing Eating, sleeping, sketching

0:17:410:17:45

# Painting, stretching, gluing Sticking up and wiping round

0:17:450:17:50

# Dressing up and sitting down! #

0:17:500:17:52

But what was really special about today? Well,

0:17:550:17:58

Claude was dressed as a hoppy hare,

0:17:580:18:01

because I read the children a book called The Tortoise And The Hare.

0:18:010:18:06

Mickey John told me he loved reading books too.

0:18:060:18:09

He was having a book sale at school to raise money for the library.

0:18:090:18:14

Rebecca and I had a sort-out of all the toys in my house.

0:18:140:18:18

We made signs and set up our toy sale outside the house.

0:18:180:18:22

Then we spread out all the toys

0:18:220:18:24

so our customers could see what they wanted to buy.

0:18:240:18:28

And Mickey John did just the same thing at his book sale.

0:18:280:18:32

We sold everything,

0:18:320:18:35

because we remembered to spread it out and show it off.

0:18:350:18:39

I hope you enjoyed yourself.

0:18:390:18:42

..Me too!

0:18:420:18:44

Bye-bye, honey-pie.
