first Lane

Mirwais and Razia are going home from school. When they want to cross the road, a car arrives very fast from the opposite side, suddenly the driver stops the car. The children afraid and the peddler shouts and asks them why they do not take care of traffic lights. Razia says that they do not know anything about the traffic lights.

Peddler takes them to traffic police in the square and he explains the traffic lights.

The traffic police says, “When the red light is on, this tells drivers to stop and pedestrians could cross the road. When the green light is on, this means the driver can start driving or keep driving and pedestrians should stop. Yellow light on tells drivers to stop and when it is safe, they can drive, because the light is about to turn red and it is the same for pedestrians too.”

The children thank the traffic police for informing them about traffic lights. Meanwhile, the children hear a voice from inside the bag and ask about it from the peddler.

 The peddler brings out magic traffic lights and they tell a melody about the traffic lights. The children learn the melody and peddler goes to the next lane.

Second Lane:

Peddler enters the lane. Emal, Madina, and other children welcome and ask him about their gifts.

Peddler tells them the following joke as a gift:

“A boy brings a cluster of grapes and give one grape to each of his friends. His friends ask for more. The boy says that all grapes have the same taste.”

The children like the joke and the peddler goes to the last lane.

Third Lane:

Naqib and Nadia are waiting for the peddler and Golden Wing fairy to come and tell them a new part of the story.
