Ann and Friends - Zac

A duck story and questions for Beginning Braille Readers by Ann Gelles.

7. Zac

Let me tell you about my pal, Zac.

Zac is quite big for a duck.

He will eat bugs, worms, oats and mosquitoes.

Zac gets up at dawn.

He will quack, quack, quack at dawn.

"Quack, quack, quack," tells me that he is very hungry.

He is quite bossy about food.

Zac wants oats.

I sleep late until Zac pecks my toes so I'll get up immediately so he can eat.

After he eats, Zac takes a nap.

Zac also likes my pool.

We swim together every afternoon after my piano lesson.

Zac will swim a mile every afternoon.

I can't swim a mile yet.

My friends like Zac too.

I am lucky Zac is my friend.
