A pre-adolescent girl tends a toddler who sits perched in the front basket of a motorcycle parked outside a storefront in Hanoi. The children are both wearing sleeveless pink pajamas.

Older sisters and brothers in Asia generally are expected to be responsible for younger children and infants. These children may belong to the owners of the shop visible behind the motorcycle. The shop-owning family typically lives in an apartment above the shop. When a family owns a motorcycle, usually all family members, including carefully held toddlers, are transported this way.
