    The Ugly Duckling - Reviewed by Honey Bee Books March 30th 2016  'Mother Duck is waiting for her eggs to hatch. When she discovers that one of her ducklings is not as pretty as her other four, she is very disappointed. After being teased, chased and laughed at, the poor little Ugly Duckling sets out to find his place in the world. It's not long before the Ugly Duckling happens upon four baby swans swimming in the pond and they ask him to play with them and as the title suggests, he finds his happily ever after when the Mother Swan tells him he is a swan, not a duckling.  The beautiful illustrations by Annie White express so much feeling. This picture book is a lovely way to introduce a new, young audience to the classic story of The Ugly Duckling. It is also a wonderful reminder that there is nothing wrong with being different. This book is ideal for ages 3-6 years.'
