It is a beautiful summer day. The sun shines warmly on an old house near a river. Behind the house a mother duck is sitting on ten eggs. “Tchick.” One by one all the eggs break open.
All except one. This one is the biggest egg of all.
Mother duck sits and sits on the big egg. At last it breaks open, “Tchick, tchick!”
Out jumps the last baby duck. It looks big and strong. It is grey and ugly.
The next day mother duck takes all her little ducks to the river. She jumps into it. All her baby ducks jump in. The big ugly duckling jumps in too.
They all swim and play together. The ugly duckling swims better than all the other ducklings.
– Quack, quack! Come with me to the farm yard! – says mother duck to her baby ducks and they all follow her there.
The farm yard is very noisy. The poor duckling is so unhappy there. The hens peck him, the rooster flies at him, the ducks bite him, the farmer kicks him.
At last one day he runs away. He comes to a river. He sees many beautiful big birds swimming there. Their feathers are so white, their necks so long, their wings so pretty. The little duckling looks and looks at them. He wants to be with them. He wants to stay and watch them. He knows they are swans. Oh, how he wants to be beautiful like them.
Now it is winter. Everything is white with snow. The river is covered with ice. The ugly duckling is very cold and unhappy.
Spring comes once again. The sun shines warmly. Everything is fresh and green.
One morning the ugly duckling sees the beautiful swans again. He knows them. He wants so much to swim with them in the river. But he is afraid of them. He wants to die. So he runs into the river. He looks into the water. There in the water he sees a beautiful swan. It is he! He is no more an ugly duckling. He is a beautiful white swan.

The Ugly Duckling On a beautiful summer day, a family of ducks
is taking a swim while another is enjoying a stroll by the bank. But one duck is sitting on her eggs among
the tall leaves. I wonder when my babies are going to come
out. They are taking so long to hatch! It is so lonely, no one has the time to visit
me. But Mommy duck didn’t have to wait too long. Soon the eggs started cracking and the little
ducklings started taking small unsteady steps out of the shells. Quack quack, quack quack. Oooh, my babies are so beautiful! Now come and line up here all of you. One..Two..Three..Four…Five..Hey, there should
be one more. Mother duck looked around, and saw one egg
which had not yet hatched I think I will have to sit again on this egg
till it hatches. It seems pretty large. Soon the last egg hatched, but the duckling
that crept out was large and ugly. This little fellow doesn’t look like his
brothers and sisters. The next day, Mother Duck leads her brood
to the water. Oh! I am proud today that my ducklings are swimming
so well! And how well the youngest one is swimming. Come on kids, that’s enough for today. We must get to the farm before it turns dark. The duck family makes its way to the farmhouse,
where there are lots of other ducks. What is that strange looking creature doing
here? The other ducklings are so cute but this one
is so big and ugly. He is ugly. We don’t want him here. That’s not a nice thing to say. He is still small, and I’m sure he will
grow up to be beautiful too. But the other ducklings continued to bully
and make fun of the ugly duckling. I hope the ducklings stop this nonsense. I can’t bear to see that poor child looking
so sad. But as days went by, things started becoming
worse for the ugly duckling. Wherever he went, everyone was mean to him. Have you ever seen anything uglier than this? Uff! Seeing this creature in the morning, my day
will also be as ugly as he is. Ha..Ha…he seems to be getting uglier by
the day. The Ugly Duckling just wanted to hide somewhere
and cry. Even his brothers and sisters were rude to
him. Don’t come near us. Go away! I wish the cat comes and takes you. Mother Duck was very sad to see everyone treat
the ugly ducking so badly. Nobody wants to talk to me or play with me
because I am ugly. I will run away from here. So the ugly duckling flew over the fence of
the farmyard, and continued flying till he spotted a large moor. He decided to spend the night there. I am so tired. I think I will spend the night here. Next morning, the ugly duckling woke up to
the sound of loud quacking. He opened his eyes and saw a flock of wild
ducks. Who are you? What are you doing here? Can I please stay here for a while? I have nowhere to go. You are ugly….(a long pause) Stay here,
but don’t get in our way. The Ugly Duckling stayed on the moor for a
few days. He felt lonely, but no one bullied him or
hurt him because of his looks. One morning, the duckling heard a noise like
a big bang. He lay still, too scared to move. When he finally lifted his head and looked
around, all the other ducks had fled. The ugly duckling also fled from the moor
as fast as it could. It flew as fast as its young wings would take
him. However, suddenly there was thunder and lightning,
scaring the little duckling. Brrr. I am so wet and cold. That cottage there looks warm, maybe I can
take shelter there. The cottage belonged to an old lady, who lived
with with her tomcat and hen, who found the duckling the next morning. Cluck cluck, meow meow
What is happening here? Why are you making so much noise? What is this we have here? Looks like a duck, though a very ugly one. I know what I will do. I will keep it with me and wait for it to
lay eggs. Then I will have eggs from my hen and from
this duck too. Ah, but I do hope this is a duck and not a
drake. So the ugly duckling stayed with the old lady
in her cottage. But here also, the tomcat and the hen made
its life so miserable! Hey you, don’t you get scared when you see
your face in the mirror? Look at me. My coat is so silky. Look at my whiskers, so long and beautiful. The mistress says my walk is so graceful. You are such a loser. You cannot even lay an egg! Look at my eggs, such lovely big and brown
ones. The ugly duckling continued to be lonely. He would sit in front of the window looking
at the small pond outside. How I wish I could swim in that pond. It used to be so nice when I swam in the cool
water back home. Are you mad? The mistress is not going to let you go. You have a safe house, what more do you want? Behave yourself and don’t anger the mistress,
the cat, or even me. Want to swim, indeed! The ugly duckling felt very, very sad, wondering
what to do. I know this place is safe, but I feel like
a prisoner here, being punished by not being allowed to swim. I want to swim – I want to be free to swim
and fly as I please. I have to escape from here somehow. So one night, the duckling quietly crept out
of the cottage and went in search of a new home. Soon he found a beautiful lake where he could
swim and dive. Ahhhhh! (Splash) This is such a lovely place. It feels so good to swim after so long. I hope the other animals and birds here are
friendly so I don’t have to move away from here also. But alas, here too the other animals did not
want to be friends with the ugly duckling. Why does everybody keep avoiding me? Just because I am ugly, it doesn’t mean
everyone has to be mean! No one wants to play with me or even talk
to me! So life continued in this miserabke way for
the ugly duckling. Soon, the seasons changed. Autumn set in, and the colour of the leaves
changed from red to orange and then gold. Winter followed. The forest turned white, and a very cold wind
set in. The dark clouds made the duckling feeling
even more gloomy and sad, so the duckling decided to go to the lakeside. And what a lovely sight he saw there! What are these beautiful birds? I don’t think I have seen them before. How beautifully they spread their large wings! It looks like they are not flying but just
gliding through the sky. Though the winter grew colder and colder,
the duckling continued to swim despite the freezing water, and then finally took refuge
in some bushes. Finally, it was spring again. Plants started sprouting and the sun peeped
down from the sky. The duckling was so happy that it was becoming
warm again. Everything around me has become so beautiful. My wings have also become strong and I can
now swim in the pond close by. Suddenly, the duckling once again saw the
same beautiful birds that he had seen at the start of spring, and quickly ran and hid behind
some bushes. Those birds are so beautiful. I better not go near them, or they too will
make fun of me. I am so scared that they might even kill me! I am so tired of being picked on by everybody,
first the ducklings at the farm, my own brothers and sisters, the hen and tomcat at the cottage,
and everybody else. I wish I had never been born! (Sob sob sob.) The duckling went to a quiet spot on the lake
where nobody could see him. He was very, very sad, and big fat tears rolled
down its face. Suddenly, the duckling saw its own reflection
in the lake, and couldn’t believe its eyes! For staring at him in the clear water below
was his own reflection, no longer a dark, grey bird, ugly and repulsive to look at. Instead, he had turned into a graceful and
beautiful swan. The ugly duckling had transformed into a beautiful
swan!! All the other swans came to greet the newcomer,
and stroked his neck with their beaks. Finally, the ugly little thing was accepted
and loved by his new friends, to whom he belonged, the beautiful and graceful swans. A family with two children came to see the
swans swimming. Look, there is a new one. Father, mother, come here, there is another
swan. A new one has arrived.” The new one is the most beautiful of all. Oh, he is so young and pretty! The swan did not know how to react to so much
praise. He felt shy and tried to hide his face. After being mocked and taunted and bullied
for so long, he couldn’t believe he was being appreciated and accepted! And he was actually being called beautiful! I never dreamt that I would see a day when
someone would call me beautiful! I wish I had received the same love and affection
when I was the little and ugly creature, I wouldn’t have spent such a sad childhood. Why do people treat others according to their
looks? That is so, so sad!


  1. Um. Put this on for my two young kids. Had to skip the entire middle. They pointed out the mom counting the wrong number. They mention if the ugly duckling goes near the swans they will die too?? Wtf.

    -_- and everyone is monotone. I dont suggest this at all.

  2. I knew i could find Politics if i just scrolled here!!
    This story isnt about race. He was grey, not black. He was grey in ALL the stories ever of ugly duckling.

  3. I think the duckling is sad 😢😿😿😿😿😿😿😿😿😿😿😿😿😿😿😿😿😿😿😿😿😿😿😿😿😿😿😿😿😿😿😿😿😿😿😿😿

  4. Because white people took over and called black peoples niggers and made us be slaves than the so called duck turned into a white person and I’m black so they are dumb 🤦🏾‍♀️🤦🏾‍♀️🤦🏾‍♀️🧕🏾👎🏿

  5. This story is very inappropriate and its just plain racist. I was watching this with my daughter and immediately turned it later coming back to watch it myself only to see it was beautiful when turned white ????? Way to teach black children to not love themselves
