The Ugly Duckling Dinosaur - Review and Giveaway


We are all familiar with the lovable tale of the Ugly Duckling and the positive message it passes along to children.  Cheryl Bardoe has taken this tale and put a fun new spin on it! As we anxiously await the emergence of 7 little ducklings from their eggs, we are shocked to discover a dinosaur hatching from one of those eggs!

Of course this dinosaur does not look like the ducklings. He stands out with his big teeth and large size. The illustrations by Roy D. Kennedy help to bring this story to life and show you just how different the dinosaur is. In this heartbreaking tale the dinosaur leaves the ducklings and goes off to try and make friends. But sadly they are all scared of how he looks and they run away. 

This story takes us on adventure and lets us know what it feels like to be different. It illustrates the sadness associated with not being accepted and teaches compassion. Fortunately, this dinosaur does find his happy ending  but you will have to read the book to find out how! The author also includes some fun facts about dinosaurs... so you can learn something new, too!

Giveaway: One lucky reader will win a copy of The Ugly Duckling Dinosaur!
