Rose on CBeebies!

We’re delighted to learn that Rose Ayling-Ellis, who won so many hearts on Strictly Come Dancing, is going to use British Sign Language (BSL) to read a CBeebies bedtime story on the BBC this Sunday.

The story is Can Bears Ski? by Raymond Antrobus with illustrations by Polly Dunbar. It follows Dad Bear and Boy Bear and explores what it’s like to be a deaf child in a hearing world.

CBeebies Bedtime Story is on daily at 6.50pm and on BBC iPlayer, with episodes signed by a BSL interpreter airing every Saturday and Sunday. For more on Rose and Can Bears Ski?, see the BBC website.
