Hi, it's me, Nina, from Sesame Street, and you're listening to Goodnight, World, a sleepcast where your friends at Sesame Street and Headspace Studios help you get ready for bed. Goodnight, world. Goodnight, world. Goodnight, world. Goodnight, world. Goodnight, world. Goodnight, world. Goodnight, world. Tonight's episode is-- Grover explores the Jungle. (gentle music fades) Hi, it's me, Nina, from Sesame Street. I'm on my way to the library to meet a friend for story time. Hmm. I wonder where he is. I am here, Nina. Whoa. I am okay. (chuckles) Oh, good. It's nice to see you, Grover. You too, Nina. Are you ready for story time? Yes, I have had a very busy day bringing customers their food at Hoopers. Whew, so I am ready for story time. Reading books is a nice way to relax after a long day. Do you have a book you'd like to read today? I most certainly do, Nina. I, your furry pal, Grover, as you know, love animals. I find all animals so cute and adorable. So I have the perfect book to read. It is called "Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Animals". That looks like a great book, Grover. And wow, it does have a lot of different animals, animals that live in the ocean, live on the farm, live-- Oh, yes, as a farmer myself, I love farm animals. Can we read about farm animals? Claro, I love farm animals too, Grover. My favorite farm animals are the goats. Oh, I love the goats too, Nina. Goats and gorillas. I just love how the gorillas climb the trees at the farm. Grover, I don't think gorillas live at the farm. Gorillas live in the jungle. Well, of course. I knew that, Nina. I was just checking to make sure you knew it too. Oh, okay. Good. Let's have a look at this book then. It says this book also has animals that live in the desert, in the jungle, and even animals you can have as pets. Oh, you know what, Nina? What if we read about pets instead? I love pets too. Like cute little kitty cats, doggies, goldfish, and of course, leopards. Hmm, Grover, leopards aren't pets. Huh? Well, where do leopards live? Leopards often live in the jungle, just like gorillas. Hmm, leopards, gorillas, I am sensing a pattern here. Yeah. You seem to be very interested in animals that live in the jungle, Grover. I am, Nina. I have always wanted to be a jungle explorer. I have been an explorer in many places, like the desert, the ocean, Antarctica, and even Pittsburgh, but never the jungle. Then let's take a seat in the Story Time area and read all about jungle animals. Great idea, Nina. That way, I can rest my cute, fuzzy, blue legs. You got it, Grover. It says here in the book that along with leopards and gorillas, there are so many more animals that live in the jungle, and there are beautiful birds...
