The Rabbit family crept into McDuff’s garden. Little Rabbit grabbed a yellow squash. Mama rabbit plucked a juicy red tomato, and Papa Rabbit snatched a crisp green cucumber. Then they scurried home.
As Little Rabbit munched and crunched, he pointed to the tiny flecks nestled inside. “Mama, what are these?”
“Seeds,” Mama said. They make new plants when you put them in the ground.”
The next day, the Rabbit family was back in McDuff’s garden. Suddenly, they heard a thump thump thump. It was McDuff!
“Get out of my garden!” he yelled, shaking his rake.
