“What is THAT? He cannot be one of us!”
“I have never seen such an ugly duckling!” said another.

I love the message of this book because as someone who feels like judgment is one of the main issues in the world, this classic story helps allow people to understand what to look for in people.

This book has a good message of not judging a person by the way they look and accepting a person for who they are. I like this book because of the message and I believe it is a very important one because people are always judging others.

This story would be great to use to teach students about the importance of being unique and also including each other in the classroom. Everyone is different and that is something that should be celebrated.

The drake has been a swan all along, though none had known it. And now all the beautiful swans were gathering about to welcome him.

The Ugly Duckling is a book about a duckling that was born different than its other siblings. The Ugly Duckling is a fairytale that teaches the lesson that it is okay to be different and important to be unique. The story is very flat with its characters and its adventures.

Quote:
“I shall fly near these royal birds, and they will peck me to bits because I, who am so very ugly, dare to go near them. But I don't care. Better be killed by them than to be nipped by the ducks, pecked by the hens, kicked about by the hen-yard girl, or suffer such misery in winter.“

This traditional literature can be used to talk about the effect of our words.

Review:
This is a folktale because of the flat characters and it came from the imagination of someone when they were telling the tale.

“Reflected in the still pool he saw many graceful hopes, with long necks and golden bills. Without thinking, he looked for his dull feathers and awkward, skinny neck. But no such thing was there. Instead, he beheld beneath him a beautiful sawn!”
