Duckie Can’t Swim

Set in a farm, this story is about Duckie who is upset that he cannot swim no matter how hard he tries. The rubber ring makes him float, the goggles makes him sink while the brand-new flippers just make his feet heavy! Who can help Duckie become a duck that can swim? Join us on this journey of perseverance and determination as Duckie attempts to swim like a true duck!
