The Ugly Duckling is a very cute but sad story. I really enjoys this story and think that it would be great for children. Especially children that have self- confident problems.

This story would be good for a one-on-one with a child. Even a councilor to a child. Some children may have self-confident issues that need a boost of confidence. This book is perfect for that.
