Papa Wood Duck's Gift
By Mary Lynn Bushong
  

1     Papa Wood Duck sat on the front porch of his house. He looked at the Mallard house across the road. The Wood Duck and Mallard children often swam together at the pond.
 
2     He had noticed that Papa Mallard no longer went to work each day. What was going on at the Mallard house? Perhaps Mama Wood Duck knew.
 
3     "Mama," said Papa when he went inside. "What is going on at the Mallard house? Papa Mallard no longer goes to work each day."
 
4     Mama Wood Duck nodded. "He lost his job last week."
 
5     "I am sorry to hear about that," said Papa Wood Duck. "What kind of work did he do?"
 
6     "I don't know," said Mama. "Margie Mallard works. I am worried about Marvin."
 
7     "Who is Marvin?" asked Papa.
 
8     "Marvin is their youngest duckling. He can't walk since his accident last summer. It has been very hard for the whole family. It won't be a very bright Christmas for them."
 
9     "What was it that happened to Marvin, anyway?" asked Papa.
