In this story, Precious is playing hide and seek with Hip and Hop, but the bell on her tail keeps giving her away. Hip, one of the rabbit twins, has the same problem with her long ears!
Luckily, the Counting Sheep are around to show them how it's done. "Driver Dan's Story Train" is a brilliant new CBeebies television series perfectly pitched for the pre-school audience.
Visually distinctive, it features a whole cast of endearing animated characters, each with their own personalised carriage on the Story Train driven by Driver Dan. Already a big hit with parents and children, the series is set to become a classic.

Zoe loves her doll Molly, but so does her dog, Beans. It's become a bit of a problem. And it all began when Beans lost his favourite toy, Binky Boo.
Will Zoe and Beans ever find him? Let's hope so, because Beans won't give up the doll until they do, and poor Molly isn't meant to be a dog's toy. She's getting very stinky!
Join the loveably lively Zoe and her devoted dog Beans in a world full of fun, friendship and magical adventures.
