A duck is sitting on five eggs.Then the eggs break and five baby ducks come out.The mother duck looks at her babies.She has four beatutiful baby ducks.But one is different.It is big and brown.Its legs are very long.She doesn’t like this baby duck.
“Go away,”she says to the different duck. “You are not my baby.”
The different duck says goodbye to its brothers and sisters and goes away.It is sad.
Then it sees a pig with its baby pigs.
“Are you my mother?”it asks.
“No,” says the pig. “You are not my baby.Go away.”
So the different duck goes away.Soon it sees a fox.
“Mother, am I your baby?”the different duck ask the fox.
“No, I am not your mother,” says the fox. “But I like you.I can eat you for dinner.”
The different duck runs away.It is very sad.It wants its mother.
Then it hears another animal.It is talking to the different duck.
“You are very beautiful,”it says. “I am your mother.”
The different duck looks at the animal.It is a big white bird.It has a long neck.
“Yes,” says the white bird. “I am a swan.And you are a baby swan.”The different duck is happy now.
“And here are your brothers and sisters,” says the swan.
