We all love hearing a good story – but what makes a great story to read aloud to your child, and how can you make sure that your little one is riveted to your tale? We talked to master storyteller Bernard Cribbins about the importance of telling stories to children.

Ben Faulks (Mr Bloom) plays Peter Pan in this year's CBeebies Christmas show, Peter Pan - which you can see for the first time on Friday 19th December at 5pm. We caught up with Ben to find out what it was like to play Peter...
How does it feel to be the star of the CBeebies Christmas show?!
It’s a huge pleasure to get the role of Peter Pan. It’s a character I’ve grown up with having been read the story as a child, so to get the chance to fill his boots is extremely exciting. There’s a lot to play with too, as he’s brave but reckless, petulant then all of a sudden the life and soul of the party. I tried to remember what it was like to be a young boy so being the elder brother of three siblings has gone a long way to helping me prepare for this, (Joe & Beth, my life long apologies...)

We chatted to BBC Sport presenter Ore Oduba about reading the bedtime story on CBeebies, and how he chose which of his childhood favourites to read...
Hello! Can you tell us a bit about yourself?
Hi, I’m Ore. I’m a huge sports fan and I’m really lucky to do a job that I love. I’m a sports TV presenter at the BBC and work on lots of different shows, including BBC Breakfast. That does mean sometimes I have to wake up REALLY early in the morning, but I work with a wonderful team and it’s a great show.
