In the story chair, Athene Seyler
"If all the world were paper
And all the sea were ink
If all the trees were bread and cheese
What should we have to drink?"
That's the poem that Play School starts with each day this week, and because it's a special week - the second anniversary of the start of Play School - Athene Seyler, the programme's first story-teller, has been invited to be in the story chair.
The highlight of the week is on Thursday - the actual birthday - when Carole Ward and Rick Jones have a surprise for you.
