Picture Segment Description

SCENE 1 Bob watches over Barkley while Linda paints her kitchen. Barkley is feeling very sad, though. The Amazing Mumford happens by and has a trick that can help improve Barkley's spirit. He waves his wand and makes a giant ball appear; Barkley isn't interested. He tries again, conjuring up a giant bone; Barkley, again, isn't up to it. Bob surmises that Barkley merely misses Linda, inspiring Mumford to try again. This time, he makes Linda appear (complete with her paint and brush).

Film A girl goes to school somewhere in Africa. We see the girl getting ready to go to school, as she washes herself and brushes her teeth, puts on her clothes, brushes her hair, and takes her lunch, all with some help from her mother. We see her walking past her neighbors and watching her classmates play outside as she arrives at school. The bell rings and the girl enters the school, where the teacher is passing out chalk to her students. We see the teacher teaching the students the English words: "a boy", "a girl", "a man", "a woman," which she has written on the board, along with a drawing for each word. The students repeat the words, then write them down on their individual chalkboards as we hear the girl remark, "We are learning to read and write." The students then jump up and down, as the teacher looks on, smiling. Next, we see the students jumping outside excitedly, now that school has finished.
