The Ugly Duckling, an interactive storybook app, is a retelling of the much-loved fairytale by Hans Christian Andersen. Brought to you by the team that created the bestselling apps “My Very Hungry Caterpillar” and “Goodnight Mo!”. Beautiful images, charming narration and soothing music make this a great read for kids between 2 and 6 years old. From the first scene, they'll also discover delightful surprises in each scene: eggs that crack, flying swans, hidden creatures and a barnyard of colorful characters.
With its powerful message about self-image and acceptance, the story is a great way to teach children about kindness to others. Look out for the cheeky spider in every scene, who asks the reader how the duckling feels when he is teased by the other characters.
