Mama sings,” The clouds go sailing by, the clouds go sailing by, hee-ho the baby-O, the clouds go sailing by” to Will as he sits on the window sill. He looks at the white clouds as Mama hands him to Granny. Then, she sails away on the hop-on hop-off bus, where she works as a travel guide.
“Will, would you like me to read you a book?” asks Granny. Will cuddles on Granny’s lap as she reads to him a book about the animals at the zoo. Granny Rrr…oars like the lion, Grr..owls like the bear, Trrr…umpets like the elephant, Coooo…. s like the pigeon, Bark…s like the seal and how…..ls like the wolves. She stops at Will’s favourite page, of the picture of Baby bear and Mama Bear. “Will how does Baby bear Grrr..owl?” she asks and Will makes a ‘baby-sized’ grrr…owl. “How does Mama bear growl?” And Will looks at Granny as she makes a ‘Mama-sized’ GRR…owl.
Then Granny gives Will his colouring book with pictures of the animals in the zoo, the same one his Mama took him to. “Will, let’s colour some of the animals”, she says as she goes about her work.
When Mama comes home, Will asks her, “Would you like me to read you a book Mama?”. Then, she cuddles next to Will as he reads her the same book Granny had read to him – Rrr..oaring, Trr…rumpeting, Cooo…ing,Bark…ing,How…ling, and finally, making his favourite sound, ‘baby-sized’ grrr….owls and asking Mama to make ‘Mama-sized’ GRR..owls.
