|People move from place to place.
|There are lots of ways that you can move around from one place to another.
|Sometimes you can just move your feet and walk.
|Walking is good for you.
|Some places are too far to walk to.
|You might have to ride a bicycle or ride on a skateboard.
|Some places are too far away to ride your bicycle to.
|You might have to drive in a car, or a van, or even a truck.
|My father has a car.
|My uncle has a van.
|I have never been in a big truck.
|Trucks are usually used to carry big loads from one city to another.
|I would like to be a truck driver.
|I would travel all over and sit high up in the cab.
|I have been in a taxi cab.
|Once, my mother and I took a taxi to the hospital.
|There was a special meter in the taxi.
|When we finished our taxi ride, the driver looked at the meter to find out how much money we owed him.
|I once rode a horse.
|I sat in the saddle and held on tight to the reins.
|The horse ran very fast.
|It was a bumpy ride, and I was afraid that I would fall off the horse.
|Not too many people around here use horses for transportation.
|They used to use horses for transportation in the old days.
|If you want to travel very far away, you have to go on a train, a plane, or a boat.
|If you are in a hurry, it is best to take a plane.
|Planes fly through the air very fast.
|Trains go along the tracks.
|Sometimes I can hear the train whistle from my house.
|Boats take a long time to cross the ocean.
|Great big boats that cross the oceans are called ships.
|If you like to take it easy and look out at the water, then ships are a good way to travel.
|They say that the world is a lot smaller now because of transportation.
|People can travel to all parts of the world quickly and easily.
|The world is not really smaller, but it has become easy to get to faraway places.
