>> ADRIAN: Hi, I'm Adrian.

>> ASHLEE: And I’m Ashlee

>> ADRIAN: And we’re from Brisbane City Libraries. Ash is from BSQ.

>> ASHLEE: I’m from Brisbane Square Library 

>> ADRIAN: And I used to be from the Pop-Up. We’re going to have a little story-time with you through the digital world, it’s going to have a lot of fun, but first, let’s do our Acknowledgement of Country. We’ll get our hands ready. 

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

>> ADRIAN: Should we go again because I did not do that one very well. Let’s try again. 

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

>> ADRIAN: That was so good. Now what’s the first thing we have to do Ash, every morning, what is it we have to do.

>> ASHLEE: We’ve got to wash our hands. 

>> ADRIAN: We have to wash our hands. Do you know a song about washing your hands, how about we, this is how we wash our hands - how about we do that together.

>>TOGETHER: This is the way we wash our hands, wash our hands, wash our hands, this is the way we wash our hands, so early in the morning. 

>> ADRIAN: Should we do it one more time, just to really get in there?

>> ASHLEE: I think so. 

>> TOGETHER: This is the way we wash our hands, wash our hands, wash our hands, this is the way we wash our hands, so early in the morning.

>> ADRIAN: Awesome, great, lots of fun. Alright, so we can’t go out very much at the moment, can we? But it’s fun to pretend we can go places - that’s how we can have some fun. I like pretending that I’m on the bus. Do you like to pretend you’re on the bus Ash?

>> ASHLEE: I like to pretend I’m on the bus.

>> ADRIAN: The bus is the best place to be. What is on the bus though? Can you think about the bus in your head and what do they have?

>> ASHLEE: They’ve got a horn.

>> ADRIAN: What sound does that horn make?

>> ASHLEE: Beep, beep

>> ADRIAN: Does it go louder than that?

>> ADRIAN: I think it goes louder than that!

I think it goes beep beep. And it has some…

>> ASHLEE: Wheels, yes, wheels! They go round and round like that. What about if it rains?

Wipers.

>> ADRIAN: Wipers that go...

>> TOGETHER: Swish, swish, swish.

>> ADRIAN: And doors that go...

>> TOGETHER: Open and shut, open and shut.

>> ADRIAN: We got all those?

>> ASHLEE: I think so. 

>> ADRIAN: Ok, I’m going to play some music. Ash is going to do all the actions.

>> ASHLEE: Yup.

>> ADRIAN: We’re going to sing 'The wheels on the bus' together.

>> TOGETHER: The wheels on the bus go round and round, round and round, round and round, the wheels on the bus go round and round, all the way to town. 

The wipers on the bus go swish, swish, swish, swish, swish, swish, swish, swish, the wipers on the bus go swish, swish, swish, all the way to town. 

>> ADRIAN: Well done, I think it’s the horn next. And it has to be really loud, really loud, I want to be like, oh what’s going on over there, that’s really weird. 

>> TOGETHER: The horn on the bus goes beep, beep, beep, beep, beep beep, beep, beep beep, the wipers on the bus go beep, beep, beep, all the way to town. 

>> ADRIAN: That was great! It was so loud! Awesome! Can we do the doors?

>> ASHLEE: Yes.

>> ADRIAN: And we’ll do a clap on shut. 

>> TOGETHER: The doors on the bus go open and shut, open and shut, open and shut. The doors on the bus go open and shut, all the way to town. 

>> ADRIAN: That was so good. Uh oh, I think our imaginary bus, is going down an imaginary hill. 

>> ASHLEE: Uh oh.

>> ADRIAN: It’s going to go really fast, isn’t it? 

>> TOGETHER: The wheels on the bus go round and round, round and round, round and round. The wheels on the bus go round and round, all the way to town. 

>> ADRIAN: And the wipers. 

>> TOGETHER: The wipers on the bus go swish, swish, swish, swish, swish, swish, swish, swish. The wipers on the bus go swish, swish, swish, all the way to town. 

>> ADRIAN: And the horn.

>> TOGETHER: The horn on the bus goes beep, beep, beep, beep, beep beep, beep, beep beep. The horn on the bus go beep, beep, beep, all the way to town. 

>> ADRIAN: And the doors.

>> TOGETHER: The doors on the bus go open and shut, open and shut, open and shut. The doors on the bus go open and shut, all the way to town. 

>> ADRIAN: Well done, so good. So you’re on the bus right - what should we do next do you think? How about we go for a little row on the stream? Does that sound good?

>> ASHLEE: I think we can do that.

>> ADRIAN: So you’re imagining your little boat and you’re pulling the oars back. Who do you think we’ll see along the way? Some friends?

>> ASHLEE: Some friends I think. 

>> TOGETHER: Row, row, row your boat, gently down the stream. Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily, life is but a dream. 

>> ADRIAN: Lovely, this is so pleasant. Is there something in the water?

>> ASHLEE: I think there could be something in the water. 

>> TOGETHER: Row, row, row your boat, gently down the stream. If you see a crocodile, don’t forget to scream. Argh, crocodile, run away! 

>> ADRIAN: Ok, let’s go down the river instead, and maybe there’ll be a polar bear. 

>> TOGETHER: Row, row, row your boat, gently down the river, if you see a polar bear, don’t forget to shiver. It’s so cold, brrrr! 

>> ADRIAN: Alright, how about we go to the shore, that’s a good place to have a little row I think. 

>> ASHLEE: Yup

>> TOGETHER: Row, row, row your boat, gently down the shore. If you see a lion, don’t forget to roar. (roaring)

>> ADRIAN: Great roars everybody, that was so good! Ok, how about we do some dancing, I’m ready to do some dancing. 

>> ASHLEE: Yeah. 

>> ADRIAN: You’re going to clap, we’re going to sing. Everybody clap. Actually, we’ll need a teddy bear for that I think. I think you know this, so I’ll just go into it. Alright...

>> TOGETHER: Everybody clap, everybody sing, la la la la la, bow to your partner and then you turn around, hands in the air, rock-a-bye bear, the bear is now asleep, sh, sh, sh, sh, sh, sh, the bear is now asleep, sh, sh, sh. 

>> ADRIAN: Is the bear asleep? I don’t think he’s asleep. I think we’ll have to do it really loudly to get bear asleep. The bear needs lots of noise to be asleep – it’s weird like that – funny. Ok, let’s go. 

>> TOGETHER: Everybody clap, everybody sing, la la la la la, bow to your partner and then you turn around, hands in the air, rock-a-bye bear, the bear is now asleep, sh, sh, sh, sh, sh, sh, the bear is now asleep, sh, sh, sh. 

>> ADRIAN: Ok, I think that’s a long enough nap for bear – should we wake bear up? On the count of three, I want to hear, wake up bear, ok, one, two, three, wake up bear.

Did he wake up? 

>> ASHLEE: No.

>> ADRIAN: Ok, really loud this time, on the count of three. Wake up bear! Yay, he’s awake now. That’s so good, I think bear is ready for a story. Are you ready for a story? Ok, let’s sit down and have a story together. The story I have here is, Oi Frog, and we’ve got a frog and a little fly and a big log. A frog, on a log, interesting. Ash has got a little frog.

>> ASHLEE: I’ve got a little frog over here. 

>> ADRIAN: Wish me luck, turning the pages. "Oi Frog, sit on a log!", said the cat. "But I don’t want to sit on a log," said the frog. "Logs are all nobbly and uncomfortable. And they give you splinters in your bottom." That’s not very nice. 

"I don’t care", said the cat. You’re a frog, so you must sit on the log." Did you know that?

>> ASHLEE: I did not know that. The cat knows though. 

>> ADRIAN: "Can’t I sit on a mat?", asked the frog.

"Only cats sit on the mats", said the cat. Cats sit on mats and frogs sit on logs.

"What about a chair?" said the frog. "I wouldn’t mind sitting on a chair." I have to say, these chairs are very comfortable.

"Hares sit on chairs," said the cat. So we have – hares sit on chairs.

>> ASHLEE: Cats sit on mats and frogs sit on logs.

>> ADRIAN: Alright, what do we have next do you think?

"Perhaps, I could sit on a stool," said the frog. That’s kind of like a chair without a back.

"Mules sit on stools," said the cat. So a mule sits on stools.

>> ASHLEE: Hares sit on chairs, cats sit on mats and frogs sit on logs. 

>> ADRIAN: Well done Ash, keeping up with it.

"What about a sofa?", said the frog. "I could really stretch out on a sofa."

I love sofas. Do you have a sofa at your house? Maybe you’re sitting on a sofa right now! How cool.

"Gophers sit on sofas," said the cat. This cat has a lot of rules, doesn’t it?

>> ASHLEE: It really does. 

>> ADRIAN: So cats sit on mats, hares sit on chairs, mules sit on stools and gophers sit on sofas, frogs sit on logs. That’s a lot of sitting. 

>> ASHLEE: It’s a lot of rules too. 

>> ADRIAN: "What do lions sit on?", asked the frog. "Lions sit on irons", said the cat. Can you sit on an iron – that doesn’t look very comfortable.

"Ouch!" said the frog. "What do parrots sit on?" "Parrots sit on carrots," said the cat. Lions sit on irons and parrots sit on carrots" On a pile of carrots – it’s not very practical.

"Doesn’t sound comfortable", said the frog. The frog agrees with us. "It’s not about being comfortable," said the cat. It’s about doing the right thing."

"What do foxes sit on?", asked the frog. "Foxes sit on boxes and fleas sit on peas." You can’t see it, but there are some tiny fleas with some tiny peas. I can’t even remember all the things we’ve had. We’ve had so many things. 

>> ASHLEE: And so many rules too. 

>> ADRIAN: Let’s see what else. "What do goats sit on?" asked the frog. That’s a great question. "Goats sit on coats, cows sit on ploughs, storks sit on forks." This is crazy. This cat is just a stickler for the rules, isn’t it.

"What do gorillas sit on?" asked the frog. "Gorillas sit on pillars, rats sit on hats, weasels sit on easels and moles sit on poles". Wow – that’s a lot of sitting. I don’t agree with this cat all. I think this cat’s just got too many rules.

"I never knew that," said the frog. "Well you do now," said the cat.

"Well, what do dogs sit on?" asked the frog, "I was hoping you weren’t going to ask that." Oh no, what do you think dogs sit on?

>> ASHLEE: I’m not sure. 

>> ADRIAN: Uh oh, dogs sit on frogs. Poor little frog, look, he’s saying help. Wave goodbye frog. 

>> ASHLEE: Bye. 

>> ADRIAN: After all that sitting, I think we need to dance around don’t you think?

>> ASHLEE: I think so too. 

>> ADRIAN: Ok, we need to shake all the sillies out – are you ready to shake all the sillies out? Do you have a scarf or an old t-shirt at home you could wave around? Let’s have some fun. 

>> TOGETHER: We’re going to shake, shake, shake our sillies out, we’re going to shake, shake, shake our sillies out, we’re going to shake, shake, shake our sillies out and wriggle our worries away. Can we jump our jiggles out? We’re going to jump, jump, jump our jiggles out, we’re going to jump, jump, jump our jiggles out, we’re going to jump, jump, jump our jiggles out and wriggle our worries away. 

>> ADRIAN: Ok, should we shake again? 

>> ASHLEE: Let’s shake again.

>> ADRIAN: Ok, shake shake, shake. Shaking really hard this time. 

>> TOGETHER: We’re going to shake, shake, shake our sillies out, we’re going to shake, shake, shake our sillies out, we’re going to shake, shake, shake our sillies out and wriggle our worries away. Last time we’re going to jump, lets jump really high. We’re going to jump, jump, jump our jiggles out, we’re going to jump, jump, jump our jiggles out, we’re going to jump, jump, jump our jiggles out and wriggle our worries away. 

>> ADRIAN: Well done, I love jumping around when I’m happy. What do you love doing when you’re happy Ash?

>> ASHLEE: I like to clap my hands.

>> ADRIAN: Do you want to do that together?

>> ASHLEE: Yes. 

>> TOGETHER: If you’re happy and you know it, clap your hands, if your happy and you know it clap your hands if you’re happy and you know it and you really want to show it, if you’re happy and you know it, clap your hands. What else do we like doing? Stomping our feet. 

If you’re happy and you know it, stomp your feet, if you’re happy and you know it, stomp your feet, if you’re happy and you know it and you really want to show it, if you’re happy and you know it, stomp your feet. What else can we do? Are you ready to shout hurrah?

>> ASHLEE: Yes, really loud. We want your neighbours to hear you – let’s go. 

>> TOGETHER: If you’re happy and you know it, shout hurrah – you’re not in a library, be as loud as you want, you’re at home. If you’re happy and you know it, shout hurrah, if you’re happy and you know it and you really want to show it, if you’re happy and you know it, shout hurrah.

>> ADRIAN: Well done. 

>> TOGETHER: If you’re happy and you know it, wave goodbye, if you’re happy and you know it, wave goodbye, if you’re happy and you know it and you really want to show it, if you’re happy and you know it wave goodbye. 

>> ASHLEE: Bye. 

>> ADRIAN: Thank you so much. We’ve loved having storytime with you. It’s been so much fun hasn’t it Ash?

>> ASHLEE: It has. 

>> ADRIAN: It’s time to say goodbye. Thanks for tuning in. See you next time. Bye. 

>> ASHLEE: Bye.
