Dog Fathers Ducklings – level 3

23-11-2021 15:00

Nine baby ducklings were waddling about alone in a village in Essex, England. Their mother duck had disappeared, but they were lucky enough to find a new home and a parent.

Ten-year-old labrador Fred took them in as his own. The ducklings adore him and often hitch a ride on his back.

Difficult words: waddle (walk with short steps like a duck), disappear (go missing), adore (love very much), hitch a ride (climb on top of something to ride it).
