This book has a very simple and direct plot so it is easy for children to follow. The theme the book is that beauty is in the eye of the beholder and internal beauty is what defines you.

I really like this book and I appreciate it more while i'm older. I would use this in my classroom to show children that what really makes us special and great is what is within us.

I never dreamed of such happiness as this, while I was an ugly duckling.

I'd include this book but possibly debrief with my students that looks are not the most important thing about you.

“The Ugly Ducking“ by Jerry Pinkney, 1999. Traditional Literature. I said this book was so-so only because it sort of gives off the idea that looks are everything, which is definitely not true and not something I'd want my kids to think. Other than that, I thought the illustrations were beautiful and colorful and extend the story.

Just the great classic tale of of the ugly duckling but actually turns into a beautiful swan.

Such a great classic tale about not believing what other people think of you. I think this is such a cute story to read to kids and really embodies what traditional literature is all about.

I would use this book for children anywhere between first and fourth grade. This story shows kids that it is okay to be different. Sometimes the difference between you and another is what makes you special.

The Ugly Duckling is a tradition literature story that has a very sweet moral. The story is about a duckling that just does not fit in. The ugly duckling does not look like the others and is made fun of. This is because the duckling is no duckling at all, but a beautiful swan.
