The Ugly Duckling

What is the reaction of your child do birds and ducks ? Ever visited a zoo or a lake with eager ducks to get a piece of bread ? Do you let your child feed the birds ? How does your child react ? Is your child eager to get some bread to give to the birds ? How does he feel with all the birds surrounding him for a piece of food ? How do you teach him to react to the birds ? Tell me your story, here is mine...

"Quack, quack, there is a little girl approaching, let's go there", quacked the yellow duck to the orange duck.
"Quack, quack, No, the little girl will kick you...", quacked back the orange duck.
"Quack, quack, I know that Little Girl with the red dress, she always brings bread for us, quack, quack"
"Quack, quack, she looks like the Little Boy with the red shirt, and he kicked me..."
"Quack, quack, wait back then, let's see"
Soon they could hear the Little Girl shouting "Papi, come here quickly, the ducks are there, quick quick or they will run away..."
"Quack, quack, see, she wants to get us, let's swim away..." quacked the orange duck to the yellow duck.
"Quack, quack, wait a bit more, look she has something in the hand..." quacked back the yellow duck,
"Quack, quack, it's a stone, swim away..."
"Quack, quack, no, it's a piece of bread, come quick..."
"Quack, quack, she has more, good, let's go..."
The Little Girl was throwing pieces of bread everywhere, the ducks, the geese, the swans, the seagulls all came for the pieces of bread.
"Quack, quack, this is crowded, come, I'll get a piece of bread for you", quacked the yellow duck to the orange duck.
"Quack, quack, I can't, my leg still hurts from the Little Boy's kick, I can't approach", quacked back the orange duck.
"Quack, quack, I'll get the bread for you", and the yellow duck jumped as high as he could to catch the pieces of bread, but the seagulls flying around were faster, they caught all the bread.
The ducks heard the girl shouting, "Look Papi, that orange duck is sick, he has a bad leg, let me get to the orange duck, I have bread for him".
The Little Girl flapped her arms for the birds to move away as she approached the orange duck, but the orange duck was afraid.
"Papi, the orange duck is moving away, I can't give bread to the orange duck, can you help?"
The ducks saw the big man hold the Little Girl so that she could approach better, and then the miracle happened, the Little Girl was throwing the pieces of bread in the direction of the orange duck.
"Quack, quack, thank you", quacked the orange duck to the Little Girl.
"Papi, Papi, the orange duck is eating the bread", said the Little Girl happily.
"Quack, quack, thank you", quacked the yellow duck to the Little Girl.
"Papi, Papi, the yellow duck is friend of the orange duck, it said thank you to me." shouted happily the Little Girl.
