Présentation de l'éditeur
Quatrième de couverture
For over one hundred years The Ugly Duckling has been a childhood favorite, and Jerry Pinkney's spectacular new adaptation brings it triumphantly to new generations of readers. With keen emotion and fresh vision, the acclaimed artist captures the essence of the tale's timeless appeal: The journey of the awkward little bird -- marching bravely through hecklers, hunters, and cruel seasons -- is an unforgettable survival story; this blooming into a graceful swan is a reminder of the patience often necessary to discover true happiness. Splendid watercolors set in the lush countryside bring drama to life.--Ce texte fait référence à une édition épuisée ou non disponible de ce titre.

This book teaches kids that you can't judge people by what they look like that it's what's on the inside that counts, and that you shouldn't ever be mean to others just because of their looks. I love this lesson because it's something that we have been telling our kids so they know not to ever pick on people because we are all the same. Everyone has different qualities that make them special and it's what makes them who they are so they need to get to know someone by their personality and all.
It helps show how some people except who they are faster then others so by judging them it makes them feel less of themselves which is not something we need to be doing at all. You can't judge a book by it's cover it's what's inside the book that really matters so this is a wonderful lesson to teach kids and even remind adults as well.
This book would make a nice read aloud for children in the early grades of elementary school. Teachers and parents will find lots of parallels and links to modern day childhood problems.
(massive spoilers ahead)
It's 95% text (which is fine, though that in itself already makes it much harder for little kids/toddlers to appreciate), but also, the text and story line are both... very difficult for children.
Like many people, I was familiar with the general Ugly Duckling story... but I hadn't ever (like now) read through the full translation. What you find is a world where only outward appearances matter. Everyone is not only mean, but downright cruel to the a bird because it is deemed ugly, and thus unworthy.
I always knew this was the main theme... I just didn't expect it to be hammered in quite so thoroughly within a book classified as a children's book.
The drawings are fine, neither terrible nor great... but the actions of the animals are cruel, and our protagonist at one point (near the very end of the story) actually wants to die. When he sees a group of swans nearby, he doesn't think he's one of them, he thinks that they will be the one to finally put him out of his misery, to kill him since he'd prefer a quick death to being an ugly bird who is treated cruelly, starved, etc.
First... is that the message you want to give to your children? That if they're not beautiful they won't be loved? And second, at what age group would it be appropriate to have a tale about a bird who wishes for death because he can't stand being ugly (and thus despised)?
It's not often I dislike a children's book this much... but this is far more appropriately marketed for adults interested in reading a translation of the original than for children.
