Meet Izak.  He is a young boy from Lapland.  It's great to learn about people who live in different lands.  Izak has chores to do just like children all over the world.  But I bet his chores are very different from yours.  Izak is in charge of taking care of the reindeer for his family.  He must feed them and make sure they are in before dark.  As Izak teaches his younger brother about caring for reindeer, we can learn too!
