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

0:00:420:00:46

I wonder who we'll meet today?

0:00:460:00:49

This is Shoree. She's four years old

0:00:490:00:52

and lives in a country called Mongolia.

0:00:520:00:55

-You're in a hurry, Shoree.

-Yes!

0:00:550:00:57

She lives in a round home called a "ger".

0:00:570:01:01

A ger!

0:01:010:01:03

A ger.

0:01:030:01:04

She's reciting a Mongolian poem to her mum and two sisters.

0:01:040:01:10

SHE RECITES

0:01:110:01:18

Oh, that was lovely.

0:01:190:01:22

What are you doing now, Shoree?

0:01:220:01:25

Look, she's showing us all her toys.

0:01:250:01:29

What next, Shoree?

0:01:340:01:37

She's off again with her mum.

0:01:370:01:41

She's going to check if all the yaks are OK.

0:01:450:01:49

Look, one hairy yak is being milked.

0:01:490:01:52

Shoree likes being a little farmer.

0:01:540:01:58

Look at her stroking the calf.

0:01:580:02:00

Off you go again, Shoree.

0:02:000:02:03

Where are you off to now?

0:02:030:02:06

She's going to help her dad and family build a new home.

0:02:060:02:11

A new ger. Look carefully.

0:02:110:02:14

Shoree and her sister are sitting on a bed.

0:02:140:02:18

They build their ger around the furniture

0:02:180:02:21

so that they can fit it all in.

0:02:210:02:25

Time for Shoree to help now.

0:02:250:02:27

She's helping to carry sticks to build a special ger.

0:02:270:02:32

Oh, they look heavy, don't they?

0:02:320:02:35

-What are they going to do with them?

-I'm not sure.

0:02:350:02:39

But we'll find out soon.

0:02:390:02:42

First, the grown-ups are putting up the wall made of wood.

0:02:460:02:52

Shoree is helping her dad to tie it together with some rope.

0:02:520:02:58

-You're very busy, Shoree.

-Oh, yes.

0:02:580:03:01

And that wooden bit shaped like a round wheel will be the roof.

0:03:030:03:10

Look, the long sticks they were carrying

0:03:130:03:16

-are now being slotted into the round roof.

-That's clever.

0:03:160:03:21

The door is on.

0:03:220:03:25

Time now to cover the wall with warm wool.

0:03:260:03:30

And on top of the wool, a big piece of material as the final cover.

0:03:330:03:40

Why's that?

0:03:400:03:42

It's another layer to keep their home nice and extra warm.

0:03:420:03:48

And to finish, Shoree is helping to tie it together

0:03:480:03:52

round and round the ger.

0:03:520:03:54

THEY LAUGH

0:04:000:04:04

Look, the ger is ready.

0:04:040:04:08

And in she goes.

0:04:080:04:10

-Bye, Shoree!

-Bye!
