The Ugly Duckling
A duck searched for a safe place to build a nest. First, she waddled in and out of the flower garden. “No,” she quacked, “This place will not do!” Next, she looked in the back of the farmyard.
“No,” she quacked, “This place will not do!” Lastly, she looked in the field where she saw a large shady tree. “Oh yes!” she quacked happily,
“This spot will do very nicely! It is quite protected from the wind.” Many warm, dry leaves lay on the ground all around the big, shady tree. Quickly she made her nest under some leaves.

Mother Duck and the ducklings watched the egg and at last it broke, and out came a big, ugly duckling. “What a big duckling!” quacked Mother Duck.
