My First Reading Book. This is an illustrated first reading book in a large, fun format. It is an enchanting retelling of a classic fairy tale, with bright and imaginative drawings on every page. The fresh and lively storyline is designed to appeal to the young child, with simple vocabulary for those who are learning to read by themselves. It includes an interactive spread that encourages young children to read, write and observe. When Mother Duck's eggs hatch out, one of her children is far from being as beautiful as she had expected. This strange bird looks very drab indeed. The Ugly Duckling is teased by his brothers and sisters - but he has the last laugh in the end...The timeless children's story is retold in this delightful book. Familiar language and appropriate vocabulary mean that children can follow as you read to them, or more confident young readers can try for themselves. Interactive questions and a maze at the back of the book provide a valuable learning tool.
