It's about a Duck who gets lost and he uses land marks to find his way back to his mother.

There once was a duckling named Bucky He was with his family of ducks heading over to the pond to swim. “mommy are we there yet?” Bucky asks “not yet sweaty be patient!” says mama duck “ok!” he says. Just then a butterfly wisps by him. “woo!” he says Bored as he was, he follows the butterfly, he goes threw bushes and around trees still following the butterfly. With out looking he trips over a branch on the ground, he looses the butterfly. “ oh fitly sticks.” he says. He gets up from the green grass and looks around noticing that he has lost his family. Not knowing where he is he starts to get scared. “oh no where am I?” “mommy? Mommy?” he calls out but there is no answer “what will I ever do now, I’m lost! Wait I know I will retrace my steps just like my mom tells me to do when I get lost.” Bucky turns around and starts walking back. “ hey that’s the branch that I tripped over I must be going in the right direction!” he says Still walking trying to find his family he comes across a beetle. “ excuse me Mr. do you know how to get to marshy pond?” “ why yes I do, just walk this path take a right and a left, and then another right and another left one more right and go straight and you will be there.” says the beetle “ thanks.” Bucky says confused. “ I guess I will just have to look for landmarks to help me get back.” Walking slowly so he won’t miss anything Bucky comes across a tree with a cut in the bark. “hey I remember this tree now I know I’m going the right way.” Buky keeps on going no stopping him now. “ man retracing my steps is hard work.” he giggles to himself Bucky comes across a turtle “he must know where the pond is”! ducky says aloud “excuse me do you know where marshy pond is?” “ why yes I do keep going this way and that and this way and then that again and you will be there.” “thank you! Bucky says “no wonder mom told me not to talk to strangers they are confusing. no more stranger.”

“hey there is that bush that I jumped threw I am really close this time!” Bucky very excitedly jumps back threw the bush. “ok not to far now!” Retracing his steps looking out for things that he remembers passing he sees hole in the path where he knew not to go because it looked unsafe. “ the hole! I just need to go a little farther and then I will be back in mom’s arms!” yells Bucky! “hey I can see my foot prints in the wet mud I will just trace them back to mom!” Carefully Bucky traces over his tacks. One, two, three.. He counts each webbed foot print. Just then he looks up and sees this white familiar figure in front of him. “ mom!” he yells running towards her. “Bucky, oh Bucky I was so worried!” mama duck says. Jumping in her arms he leaps. “where did you go”? she asks. “well I was chasing a butterfly but its ok now I retraced my steps just like you said!” “ oh honey I love you, your so smart, how did you get so smart?” “ I only learn from the best, from you mom”! They both hug each other and they make it to marshy pond together.
