Spring Play
Ugly looks quite a bit different from his darling duckling brothers and sisters. The other animals on the farm are quick to notice and point this out, despite his mother's protective flapping. Feeling rather foul about himself, the little fowl finds himself on an adventure of self-discovery, all the while unknowingly outwitting a very hungry Cat. Along the way, Ugly meets a whole flock of unique characters and finds out that being different is not a bad thing to be.

Hi Fairview Park Families!

Last week I did an article on child development. Hopefully it helped you see what your child should be doing at the different times of their life.  This week, let's talk about behavior. I know it is not a parents favorite topic, but it is always nice to have some resources!

I hope these articles are helpful!  Let me know if you have any questions!
