I enjoy children’s picture books. The story. The illustrations. The lessons. The wisdom in their simplicity.
Isn’t that what we do? Like Floyd, more of the same hoping we’ll become unstuck. And sometimes even those who try to help us also get stuck as is the case of Stuck where firemen become wedged in the tree. Floyd then takes a saw and… you’d think he’d do something different than his previous attempts at hurling objects. He surprisingly throws the saw, knocking down the kite, because there isn’t room for any more items in the tree.
The silliness. The exaggeration and absurdity of this book. What does it tell you about becoming unstuck? And like a good story. I’m not gonna spell it out for you.
