Duck Rescue - A True Story

One day, a girl named Wendy was chopping zucchini and looking out her window. She noticed some ducks crossing the street. She phoned her best friends and neighbors. "Quick," she said. "There are ducks crossing the street!"

Wendy's friends Karen, Jeff, and Heather came running out to see the ducks. They were so excited that they came outside in their bare feet. When they arrived, they saw a mother duck and her six ducklings.
"Why are the ducks here?", Jeff asked.

"We don't know", was the group's reply.

"The ducks aren't safe here," Jeff said. "They need to head toward the creek and safety".

"I know!" he said. "I will show them the way".

So Jeff began to encourage the momma duck and her ducklings back across the street.

"I can't leave," cried the mother duck.

"Wait!" Jeff exclaimed. "One of the ducklings has fallen into the storm sewer!"

"Oh no!" cried the group. "We must get the duckling out!"

Jeff and Karen quickly lifted the sewer gate and Wendy climbed down.

"Wait!" Jeff exclaimed. "The duckling has crossed to the other side".

"We could catch the duckling with the fish net", said Karen.

"Great idea!" the group called.

And then Jeff caught the duckling in the net and brought it safely out of the storm sewer.

"I'm so proud and I'm so happy," cried Heather.

"This is wonderful!" the group shouted. "Hurray!"

And thanks to the loving duck friends, Wendy, Karen, Heather and Jeff, the duckling was reunited with her family. And the mother duck and her ducklings waddled away. And the friends were very happy. All was right and good in the world.

What a great way to describe the event. It was such a great experience too. I will never forget you crawling down in the sewer drain. That was priceless.

You should write up your story with pictures and illustrator drawings and make a children's book out of it for Christopher and Tristen and Jeff and Heather's baby to come. A lovely true story and great gift! Mom
