Welcome to Tiny Bytes, a look at some of the top news for little minds.

World Water Day

Every year, on Mar 22nd, the World Health Organisation makes the whole world stop to think about the many water-related problems that we face today. This year's theme is 'Why waste water?'

Good water leads to good health. You could help out with reducing water wastage too, kids. Cut down your play time in the shower for starters, and don't let taps run for too long when you wash your hands.

Van Gogh paintings restored to museum

Have you ever heard of Vincent Van Gogh? He is one of the world's famous painters who died in the year 1820. In the year 2002, two of his paintings were stolen by thieves who broke in through the roof of a museum in Amsterdam. The paintings have now been found and back where they belong.

Rivers given human status

Two rivers in North India, the Ganga and Yamuna, have been legally given the status of humans. Just last week in New Zealand, a river called the Whanganui River became the first river in the world to be given the same legal rights as a person.

New electronic bans on flights

The USA and the UK have come up with a new rule on certain flights that travel to and from their countries. The new rule is that people on these flights cannot take electronic items like laptops or iPads or other tablets on board the plane with them, these must be checked into Cargo.

That’s it for today, kids. Thank you for listening. I hope you’ll watch out for me at 5 pm tomorrow too. Remember, it’s so important to know what’s going on in the world around you.
