>> RACHEL: Hi everyone. My name is Rachel from Toowong Library.

>> MEG: Hello and my name is Meg and I’m also from Toowong Library. And we are here today to do a storytime with you and we have got our friend to help us. We’ve got a little sheep.

So first up we are going to do our Children’s Acknowledgment to Country.

>> RACHEL: So it goes like this. Are you ready?

>> TOGETHER: Here is the land, and here is the sky, here are my friends and here am I.

>> MEG: That was good. So do we all want to do that together?

>> RACHEL: Let’s do that again, together. Ready?

>> TOGETHER: Here is the land, and here is the sky, here are my friends and here am I.

>> RACHEL: That’s lovely.

>> MEG: That was nice. Now we are also going to do our handwashing song.

So I hope you are all washing your hands a lot at home today. So we are going to do this song that shows you not only- that- you not only sing while you wash your hands but it also shows you how to do it.

>> RACHEL: It’s very important that you do it properly and for quite a long time.

>> MEG: Yeah. It’s longer than you think it is.

>> RACHEL: It is.

>> MEG: Anyway we’re going to go…

>> TOGETHER [singing]: Rub, rub, rub your palms and the back of your hands.
Make a tent with your fingers now and then you make a clam.
Rub, rub, rub your thumbs, don’t forget your nails.
If you sing this song with me, then you’ll never fail.

>> RACHEL: Good.

>> MEG: My hands feel much cleaner.

>> RACHEL: Oh they are.

>> MEG: Lambie’s hands feel cleaner.

>> RACHEL: Absolutely. Alright, now the story I wanted to read today is one of my favourites.

So when my kids were little we used to read this quite a lot at bedtime. And it’s by Mem Fox and it’s called Where is the Green Sheep?

Alright here we go. So, Where is the Green Sheep? by Mem Fox. Can you see the Green Sheep anywhere? Let’s find out where he is.

Lots of flowers.

>> RACHEL: Can you see the green sheep? I can see a sheep flying and birthday cake, oh yum! Cups of tea, riding a bike but I can’t see a green sheep.

>> RACHEL [reading the book]: Where is that green sheep? Turn the page quietly, let’s take a peep. Here’s our green sheep, fast asleep.

>> RACHEL: Shhh! And that’s the end. Did you love that? I loved that. It’s a great bedtime story.
