Listen to an audio clip

What is he wearing on his head? That's right - his hat. Do you think it's there to shade him from the sun or shield him from the rain? We might find out during the story. Can you find its wide brim? The hat is bright sunshine yellow. Mr Gumpy looks very happy because he is about to go for a ride in his car. Can you feel his smiley mouth, his two eyes and his nose? Now feel down the feely picture. He's wearing yellow jacket. Find the collar and the two buttons down the middle. A shallow line which shows his pocket may be difficult to feel. I wonder what he keeps in there?
