Baby is born after a typhoon - level 1
This story is from the Philippines. There is a typhoon. Thousands of people die. Many people have no homes.
There is another problem. Some people steal. They steal from broken shops and homes. Soldiers stop them. The soldiers try to make the area safe.
This is all very bad, but there is still hope. There is still life. A baby is born. It is the mother’s 8th child. She is very happy. When the baby is born, people start to clap. They are happy, too.
Difficult words: typhoon (very strong wind and rain), steal (take something and give no money for it), clap (touch the hands a make a sound because you’re happy).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
