Tuesday, February 21, 2017—12 noon
It’s hard being different! The ugly duckling is the child of a swan whose egg accidentally rolled into a duck’s nest. When the strange egg showed up in Mama Duck’s nest and hatched, a very ugly duckling was born. This little duckling is perceived by the other ducklings as a homely little creature and does not “fit in.” He soon realizes that he must learn to love himself before he can discover who he really is. This story is beloved around the world as a tale about personal transformation for the better.
