>> HELEN: Hello my name is Helen and I’m from Toowong Library. And we are missing you so much at the library, we thought we would bring story time to you. 

So today I would like to share this special book and it’s written by a wonderful Australian author called Peter Carnavas and it is illustrated by a very clever lady called Kat Chadwick.

But before we do that, I would just like to acknowledge the Traditional Owners of the Land and we can do that by sharing the Children’s Acknowledgement to Country together. And these are the actions. Ready?

Here is the land and here is the sky. Here are my friends and here am I.

OK, time for our story today. Mmmm, I can see a little boy and he’s wearing a red sweater. And I can see a yellow lunchbox. Buzz! And a bee. I wonder what this story is all about.

Let’s read the title, let’s read the letters, the words. What’s in my lunchbox? Mmmm.

[Gasps]. Look at all the food! I can see a carrot. I can see a slice of pizza. I can see an apple, and a sausage, and a tub of yoghurt.

There’s those words again. What’s in my lunchbox? Buzz! And this is how the story goes. 

[reading the book]: Today in my lunchbox I happened to find… an apple. 

A red, juicy apple.

[reading the book]: I don’t like apples. 

Blah! Oh dear. Do you like apples?

[reading the book]: Today in my lunchbox I happened to find …

I wonder what’s in there. I can see some droplets of water. Mmmm. [gasps].

[reading the book]: A fish. 

[laughs] A fish with some sushi.

[reading the book]: I don’t like fish.

Mmmm.

[reading the book]: Today in my lunchbox I happened to find … 

I can see some feathers.

[reading the book]: An egg. 

An egg in a lunchbox.

[reading the book]: Oh! [groan]. I don’t like eggs.

I can see a hen and a yellow chicken and an egg and lettuce sandwich.

[reading the book]:  Today in my lunchbox I happened to find …

Buzz! [gasps].

[reading the book]: A bear. [gasps] I don’t like bears in my lunchbox. 

[laughs]. Look at the bear. It has a honey muffin.

[reading the book]: Today in my lunchbox I happened to find… [gasps]. A dinosaur! Oh, I really don’t like dinosaurs in my lunchbox.

A dinosaur with a ripe pear and a curvy sausage. And look how surprised that little boy is.

[reading the book]: Today in my lunchbox I happened to find … [gasps]. My sister? Oh. [groans]. Not my sister! 

And look, she has a strawberry. [laughs]

[reading the book]: Today in my lunchbox I happened to find… [gasps]. An apple. [laughs]. I think I like apples. [laughs]

And that’s the end of our story about What’s in my lunchbox?  And there’s the red, juicy apple.

Did you see how happy that little boy was at the end of the story? Look at him. There’s a song about being happy. Would you like to sing that with me now? This is how it goes.

[singing]: If you’re happy and you know it clap your hands.
If you’re happy and you know it clap your hands.
If you’re happy and you know it then you really ought to show it.
If you’re happy and you know it clap your hands.

[singing]: If you’re hungry and you know it rub your tummy.
If you’re hungry and you know it rub your tummy.
If you’re hungry and you know it then you really ought to show it.
If you’re hungry and you know it rub your tummy.

[singing]: If you’re hungry and you know it munch an apple [eating noises].
If you’re hungry and you know it munch an apple [eating noises].
If you’re hungry and you know it then you really ought to show it.
If you’re hungry and you know it munch an apple.
[eating noises].

[singing]: If you’re happy and you know it shout “Hurray!”
If you’re happy and you know it shout “Hurray!” 
If you’re happy and you know it then you really ought to show it.
If you’re happy and you know it shout “Hurray!

And we’re coming to the end of our story time now. Maybe at home, you would like to draw a picture of what’s in your lunchbox. Or you might like to help prepare some yummy food at home in the kitchen. 

So, we’ll see you next time. Bye bye! Thank you.
