>> SARAH: Hi everyone. My name is Sarah and we thought that seeing you can’t be at storytime with us at Ashgrove Library we would bring storytime to you. First though, what we are going to do is we’re going to do our Children’s acknowledgement to Country and it goes like this…

Here is the Land, here is the Sky, here are my friends and here am I.

Good job everyone. Well Done. Okay so now we are going to sing our hello song. I like to count to three before my hello song. So, you’re ready to count with me. Okay. One, two, three.

[singing]: Hi, hello and how are you? 
How are you? How are you? 
Hi, hello and how are you?
How are you today?

That was really good. I’m feeling really good. I hope you’re feeling good too. So, who would like to read a story? Yeah.

Well today we are going to read one of my favourite stories and it’s a great story because it’s got lots of rhyming words in it, which are wonderful for learning language. It’s called Hairy Maclary from Donaldson’s Dairy and it’s by Lynley Dodd. Okay.

[reading the book]: Out of the gate and off for a walk went Hairy Maclary from Donaldson’s Dairy.

There he is.   

[reading the book]: And Hercules Morse as big as a horse.

That’s a big dog. 

[reading the book]: With Hairy Maclary from Donaldson’s Dairy. Bottomley Potts covered in spots, Hercules Morse as big as a horse. And Hairy Maclary from Donaldson’s Dairy.

What’s he doing? Oh he’s in a hedge.     

[reading the book]: Muffin McLay like a bundle of hay, Bottomley Potts covered in spots, Hercules Morse as big as a horse.

What was the other guys name? That’s right…

[reading the book]: Hairy Mclary from Donaldson’s Dairy.

He’s found some birds. Hello birds.

[reading the book]: Bitzer Maloney all skinny and bony, Muffin McLay like a bundle of hay, Bottomley Potts all covered in spots, Hercules Morse as big as a horse… 

And say it with me…

[reading the book]: Hairy Maclary from Donaldson’s Dairy.

Hey, get out of the rubbish!

[reading the book]: Schnitzel von Krumm with a very low tum, Bitzer Maloney all skinny and bony, Muffin McLay like a bundle of hay, Bottomely Potts all covered in spots, Hercules Morse as big as a horse. And Hairy Maclary from Donaldson’s Dairy.

Having a scratch.

[reading the book]: With tails in the air they trotted on down past the shops and the park to the far end of town. They sniffed at the smells - sniff sniff sniff - and they snooped at each door, when suddenly, out of the shadows they saw…

 … What did they see? Gasp!

[reading the book]: Scarface Claw the toughest Tom in town.

That is a big cat. Look how big he is? Goodness.

[reading the book]: ‘Meowwwfftz’ said Scarface Claw.

Wow, that’s a bit scary.

[reading the book]: Off with a yowl a wail and a howl, a scatter of paws and a clatter of claws, went…

[reading the book]: Schnitzel von Krumm with a very low tum, Bitzer Maloney all skinny and bony, Muffin McLay like a bundle of hay, Bottomley Potts all covered in spots, Hercules Morse as big as a horse.

[reading the book]: And Hairy Maclary from Donaldson’s Dairy.

Wow look at them run. I’d run too!

[reading the book]: Straight back home to bed.

Hiding in his bed. That’s the end of the story. Oh that was an interesting story, wasn’t it? Bit scary at the end.

Ok so now we are going to sing a song — another song about my friend here. This is my mother duck. Hello mother duck and she has five little baby ducks so you can do this with me. Here is your five little baby ducks and your mother duck. Ready, count to three. One, two, three.

[singing] Five little ducks went out one day.
Over the hills and far away.
Mother duck said, ‘Quack, quack, quack, quack.’
But only four little ducks came back.

[singing] Four little ducks went out one day.
Over the hills and far away.
Mother duck said, ‘Quack, quack, quack, quack.’
But only three little ducks came back.

[singing] Three little ducks went out one day.
Over the hills and far away.
Mother duck said, ‘Quack, quack, quack, quack.’
But only two little ducks came back.

[singing] Two little ducks went out one day.
Over the hills and far away.
Mother duck said, ‘Quack, quack, quack, quack.’
But only one little duck came back.

[singing] One little duck went out one day.
Over the hills and far away.
Mother duck said, ‘Quack, quack, quack, quack.’
But none of her five little ducks came back.

[singing] Sad mother duck went out one day.
Over the hills and far away.
Mother duck said, ‘Quack, quack, quack, quack.’
And all of her five little ducks came back.

Excellent. I love a happy ending. Well that’s about all the time we have today. Thank you for coming along and we hope to see you again soon. Bye!
