Ten in the Bed

Written by Penny Dale

Suitable for: 5-7 years (Key stage 1)

There were 10 in the bed and the little one said ‘roll over’ – but who were the 10? And what happened to them all after they rolled out of bed? All is revealed in this classic bedtime tale.

Now open the cover of the book and here is our special feely picture. Feel all over it with both hands. There are a lot of different shapes, aren't there? If you'd like to count them all, turn off the tape now, and then turn it on again when you've finished. You might have guessed from the title that there would be ten different characters here. It's the little boy and his nine stuffed toy animals, who were all bouncing around on the bed. Let's go over them one at a time and see what each one is like.
Begin at the top left hand corner of the page, by the binding of the book, and find the first animal at the top - its a small brown Hedgehog!
