Outstanding, Preschool, Primary, Disappointment, Fear, Popsicle, Twig, Purpose, Happiness
A popsicle stick is distressed when her purpose in life melts away. A nearby twig is all sympathy and introduces the sad little stick to a few of her friends. Pencil has found purpose that "lead" to success, and brush is swept up in her art. None of this impresses the despairing little stick, who believes she will always just be “an icky, sticky stick." Then her destiny is at last revealed when a bird swoops in and lifts her into a tree, making her the last piece of a popsicle bird house.
