A little duckling was very sad because she thought she was the ugliest among all her brothers and sisters. They would not play with her and teased the poor ugly duckling. One day, she saw her reflection in the water and cried, "Nobody likes me. I am so ugly." He decided to leave home and went far away into the woods.
Finally, spring arrived. One day, the duckling saw a handsome swan swimming in the pond and fell in love with him. But then she remembered how everyone made fun of her and she bent his head down in shame. When she saw her own reflection in the water she was astonished. He was not an ugly duckling anymore, but a beautiful young swan! Now, she knew why she had looked so different from her brothers and sisters. "They were ducklings but I was a baby swan!" she said to herself.
