All of us lose loved ones at some point in our lives--through death, divorce, separations, or moving to a new city. Helping children to cope through those difficulties can ease the pain. This short story is about a boy named Kevin, who befriends a sickly duckling, named Henderson. As they spend time together, their friendship grows and they visit many interesting places. When Henderson returns to the pond, Kevin learns to adapt without his friend. Eventually, Kevin moves and Henderson has to learn to cope. Both find that although they were no longer together, their love and memories last forever.
