Reading Aloud 3


How do you go to school? For children in small villages, travelling to school can be a matter of life and death.

In Indonesia, children cross a river by using a shaky bridge that can break any minute. Not all rivers have bridges, so there are children in the Philippines who use old tyres to get across

There are a lot of floods in Bangladesh. That is why there are boat schools. In each boat, there is a small library with computers.

These floating schools pick students up from the riverside in the morning and send them home at night.
