When a ginormous egg hatches in Mama’s nest, the newborn chick is not like the other ducklings. The other hatchlings make fun of this funny duck – her size, her beak, and her weird “screak!” Her siblings laugh every time she tries to act more like them. How could Mama love such a strange duckling? Even though Mama does indeed love her very much, the ginormous duckling is still very sad. Will she learn to accept what makes her different?
In this colorful, prehistoric retelling of Hans Christian Andersen’s classic story, The Ugly Duckling is a timeless tale of learning to love yourself for who you truly are.
