    " This book again is another classic book. I enjoy reading this book now but feel sometimes, children would feel very sad for the ugly duckling in the beginning of the book. I enjoy this book though because I like the story of how the mother will love her duck no matter what he/she looks like because it is hers. This book would be a good book to read to a child who is having self esteem issues to ensure that they are beautiful and awesome in their own way. This book for me can easily loose the child though, and may bore the children. I would read this story to children probably over the age of 5. "

    " This is another book I picked up while at a yard sale. I think I must have read it as a child, as part of a compilation of Hans Christian Andersen stories. This is a nice retelling, with simple wood carving pictures accompanying it. "
