The Ugly Duckling
The Ugly Duckling - Hans Christian Andersen,Jerry Pinkney

This story is probably considered to be well known throughout society. It is about a duckling who is born not quite as beautiful as the rest. The duckling gets treated as though he does mean as much to the world as the others due to his image. Later in the book, the duckling grows up to be the most beautiful duck. This book would probably have the best results if used in 1st-3rd grade. I believe the older students might have more of an opinion on the book than the younger ones. The book could open a lesson for students to not judge their peers by their looks. Though this book will probably take students in the direction of their peers who are not well off, it could also go the other way. Students should also not judge the ones who seem as though they come from wealth. Every student has a story; it is our job as teachers to make sure all students are treated as equals.

The Twelve Tasks of the Festive Season -- Task the Eleventh: The Polar Express, Part 2: Hans Christian Andersen, "The Snow Queen"
The Snow Queen - Hans Christian Andersen,T. Pym

 

- Read a classic holiday book from your childhood (to a child if you have one handy).

 

 

Alas, I didn't have a child handy, and Holly was singularly unimpressed, so I just settled down on my couch and read Andersen's fairy tale of love conquering eternal ice all by myself!

 

The story also makes for very atmospheric visuals, of course ...

The Ugly Duckling is mainly about a duck that is left out because of his looks, but ends up being the most beautiful duck of all. I would use this book in a K-2nd grade classroom to teach children about diversity. Through the story the students can learn how important it is to not judge others just because they look different than you. This story would also be good to incorporate why it is so important to not be a bully. After reading the story students will be less likely to judge a book by its cover.

Personally this book makes me sad for the majority of the story but it is a great book to teach a moral lesson that someone may look different or seem different than us but that doesn't mean they aren't capable of something great! After reading this to the class, the class could tell about a time they felt like an ugly duckling but how the overcame feeling like that! It's a cute story how the little duck proved everyone wrong.

This is a sweet book that teaches children that they are all unique and they shouldn't make fun of someone for being different. When the duckling was born, he got made fun of for a whole year for being "ugly". After that year, the duckling grew into a beautiful swan! I would use this book to teach my students that everyone is different in some way and you should never make fun of someone for being different than you. The intended audience for this book is grades K-2.
