David and the Seagulls

By Marion Downer
Level 3

There, in a crevice of the rock, a seagull had let itself slump down. It looked forlorn and weak. David couldn’t leave it there to die. Slowly and carefully, he picked up the limp body. David had always felt at home on Monhegan Island, surrounded by his beloved seagulls. Each summer, he would watch them, care for them, and nurse the injured ones to good health. With hard work and determination, David has been able to tend to the gulls, but this summer his talents will be put to the test as four injured and abandoned seagulls find their way into his heart. David’s story is a reminder that even the smallest creature has value and that even the youngest among us can make a positive impact on the lives of others.
