A young child who compares herself to others learns that the best way to reach her full potential is to be herself.
A young girl named Ariella watches older children jumping, running and singing and begins to feel inadequate. As she compares herself to the other children, she wishes that she could be good at something too. Through her journey she takes the form of several animals with different talents, believing that she would be better able to sing and jump and run. Ultimately, she learns that each animal has its limitations, and that the only way to truly be able to accomplish the things she wishes to, is to be herself. It's a story that teaches children to love themselves, fosters self-confidence, and to be proud of the talents that make them unique and special.
