A duck made her nest under some leaves.
She sat on the eggs to keep them warm.
At last the eggs broke, one after the other. Little ducks came out.
Only one egg was left. It was a very large one.
At last it broke, and out came a big, ugly duckling.
"What a big duckling!" said the old duck. "He does not look like
us. Can he be a turkey? -- We will see. If he does not like the water,
he is not a duck."
The next day the mother duck took her ducklings to the pond.
