Its/ It’s fun to go to the park! Bernard, can you throw the ball to us?

Of course I can, but this is no ordinary ball. It’s a special ball!

With this ball, you can travel around the world and learn about customs and traditions. You can even visit a region of the world that is’nt/ isn’t part of any country.

Uh, is that possible?

Yes, it is! The North Pole! No one lives there, except maybe Santa Claus!

When I go there, my tradition is to bring back a bottle filled/ filed with snow.

It’s a lot warmer here!

Yes, because we’re in Africa! Let’s climb Africa’s highest mountain, kilimanjaro/ Kilimanjaro.

And let’s watch the animals that live in the savannah…

… and repeat/ repeet pullé, pullé, which means “slowly … slowly” in the Maasai language.

It’s amazing! Let’s continue with our trip!

Gladly! Let’s visit the Papuans in Indonesia. Would you like to learn how to dance like them?

And where are we going/ gowing now?

To the place directly opposite our starting point: Antarctica!

Where the penguins wonder/ wander around like this…

Ha ha! That’s too funny!

The last challenge is no small feat: we’re heading to Mount Everest! Before they climb this famous mountain…

… the climbers gather.

A monk recites sacred phrases for their protection/ protecsion.

Then, he tosses fistfuls of flour into the air. Our faces get covered in flour. That’s the tradition.

Once we reach the sumit/ summit, we take off our gloves to touch the sky.

What a great trip we had, thanks to this ball!

The next time we come here to play, I’ll bryng/ bring it with me again. It’ll be our tradition!
