An enchanting children's story about a little mud duck who wanted to be a handsome Plains Cree dancer, and how the Cree helped him be happy with himself as a duck. The little mud duck would fly over the Cree camp and observe the people. One day he decided to dress up like a Cree dancer and walk to the camp. When he is ignored by the dancers, the lonely duck returns to his pond and finds that, with the company of other mud ducks, he can be content with who he is. The Little Duck is a universal story that crosses cultural boundaries and leaves one with a lesson on the importance of self-worth.
