Good message about being true to yourself. Not giving in to peer pressure. And about a mother's unconditional love.
Very creative story, also teach a lesson May 31, 2008
A big grey egg rolled to a pile of duck eggs. Mother duck hatched it and treated it as one of her owns, although he looks bigger and different. One day this "baby duck" sees 3 bad crocodiles who look just like him. They told him he is a crocodile and has sharp teeth designed to catch and eat the ducks. They also asked him to help them and lure the ducks over to the bridge so they can catch and swallow the ducks.
After some identity struggle, he made a decision and put that into action.
Very creative story, also teaches us to accept and love those who are different (like mother duck), and do what we think is right.
