We're off on a colourful journey around the world.

0:00:420:00:47

I wonder who we're going to meet today.

0:00:470:00:49

This is the bank of the Rio Negro, Brazil.

0:00:490:00:54

This water flows into the Amazon river,

0:00:540:00:57

one of the biggest rivers in the world,

0:00:570:01:00

and this is a tiny island on the side of the river

0:01:000:01:04

where only a few people live.

0:01:040:01:06

This is Carlos Eduardo and his grandmother.

0:01:070:01:11

Carlos is four years old and he lives on this island.

0:01:130:01:17

Hello, Carlos Eduardo.

0:01:190:01:20

CHILDREN LAUGH

0:01:220:01:25

That's Bernie.

0:01:250:01:26

Carlos Eduardo and the other children love to spend time

0:01:260:01:30

on the banks of the river, playing in the sand.

0:01:300:01:33

Are you building a sandcastle, Carlos?

0:01:330:01:36

Yes, with a little help from his grandmother.

0:01:360:01:40

-It must be lovely playing on the beach every day.

-Yes.

0:01:400:01:45

Their homes are on the beach. They live in stilt houses.

0:01:450:01:50

The high stilts keep their homes safe from the water.

0:01:500:01:53

CHILDREN LAUGH

0:01:550:01:56

You're funny.

0:01:560:01:58

Does Carlos play all day?

0:02:010:02:03

No, not all day.

0:02:030:02:05

Carlos has to go to school too. This is it, right on the beach.

0:02:050:02:10

Hello, everybody.

0:02:110:02:13

So here's the school class. Can you see Carlos Eduardo?

0:02:130:02:18

There you are.

0:02:180:02:20

What are you doing? Are you working hard?

0:02:240:02:28

I think you're learning your numbers.

0:02:320:02:35

He is.

0:02:350:02:37

Finished!

0:02:420:02:44

Yes, and Carlos is showing his work to his teacher.

0:02:450:02:50

Lovely work, Carlos.

0:02:530:02:56

SQUAWK!

0:02:560:02:59

Look, there's a parrot on a school fence.

0:02:590:03:03

Yes, and what a colourful and beautiful parrot you are.

0:03:040:03:10

"Hello, Carlos!"

0:03:100:03:12

"Hello!"

0:03:120:03:13

It's on Carlos's seat.

0:03:130:03:16

Carlos likes to play with the parrot

0:03:200:03:22

and the parrot likes playing with Carlos.

0:03:220:03:25

Two friends!

0:03:260:03:28

The other children are still working hard...

0:03:280:03:32

..but, no, not Carlos Eduardo.

0:03:350:03:39

You're giving the parrot a pencil!

0:03:390:03:42

No, parrot, you mustn't chew it!

0:03:420:03:45

You have to write with it.

0:03:450:03:47

"Oh, it's not very tasty!" SQUAWK!

0:03:470:03:50

CHILDREN LAUGH

0:03:530:03:57

End of school and it's time to go home.

0:03:590:04:03

Yes, and you, Carlos.

0:04:040:04:07

And you, parrot!

0:04:070:04:08

It's evening...

0:04:120:04:14

..and Carlos is enjoying a splash on the edge of the river.

0:04:170:04:21

Time for bed now, Carlos.

0:04:240:04:27

Good night.

0:04:270:04:29

Bye, Carlos Eduardo. It was fun to meet you.

0:04:290:04:33
