My daughter is 5 and found the books in the Puffin Easy-to-Read series (level 1) to be just the right stage for her in developing her reading skills. She is able to read them with a high level of fluency and the success she experiences with these books has given her more confidence and motivated her to read more. Level 1 here is for ages 4-7 (as recommended by the publisher). There are familiar sight words appropriate for this level.

The stories in this series are engaging and come with full-color illustrations which interest young readers. The story here is a retelling of the classic tale of the ugly duckling. I highly recommend this beginning reader series!

I teach preschool and this was a great addition to my collection of Fairy Tales. The story is pretty simple, and the moral of the story doesn't really get across to that age, but it's the classic story of the Ugly Duckling.

The book is simple and easy to ready but the storyline is not like the original story. I bought it as a gift, but did not give it because of the change.

3 of 8 people found the following review helpful A Kid's Review on September 25, 2003
Format: Paperback
The ugly duckling is a good childrens book because it teaches kids not to judge people because they look differnt or act differnt. This book is about a duck that is ugly, and the other ducks reject the ugly duck. I would recamend this book for children 3-6 because thats what it said on the cover of the book.
