A simple book about a stick person (wittily illustrated by the letters O and K) trying out different things and not being too good – or bad – at them; just being mediocre. The lesson to learn from this person is that it is okay to not be good at everything we do, as long as we have fun while doing it, that it is OK to be OK. The authors celebrate the real skills and talents children possess, encouraging and empowering them to discover their own individual strengths and personalities but making sure they enjoy the process. Many times we adults also need to learn this important lesson.
