RELIGIOUS MATERIAL
If you are familiar with the Bible, the Kitabbul Muqaddus is a 4-5th grade Musselmani Bangla translation. There's a free app of the same name that has the full text, audiobook, and spiritual songs. You can also find religious material for children, which works well as "third-culture" material for bridging contexts.
