How important it is to figure out who you are and how you are going to be heard in this world. This wonderful little fable is about a clever stick who ventures forth to explore and finds to its sorrow that it has no voice to add to the world. It cannot compliment the rose or share poetry with a frog. But, as it continues on its path and when the stick is feeling defeated, it turns and notices the trail it has left behind it. What a powerful little book.
