Dog Fathers Ducklings – level 2

16-08-2019 15:00

People found nine baby ducklings waddling about a village in England. Their mother was nowhere to be found and they needed a parent.

Luckily, ten-year-old labrador Fred took them in, and he became their father and the ducklings love him. They often ride on his back!

Difficult words: waddle (walk with short steps like a duck), labrador (a type of dog), take somebody in (adopt, take care of).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
