There once was an old farmhouse, that lived a family of ducks. When the eggs hatched, there was something different about one of them. The other ducks noticed that this special one was different from them. He looked different and appeared different to them. They made him feel like he wasn't wanted.
As the duckling picked on him, he began to feel more alone than ever and decided to leave his family, hoping he could find a friend who would accept him. He wandered to a far away pond and saw a flock of beautiful white birds with long necks and wished he could look like them.
As winter ended and the pond unfroze, the ducking arrived at the pond and was surprised by his reflection in the water. Staring back at him was a beautiful swan. He was white with a long white neck and he was amazed!
