It's the first day of school. Howie is worried. Will he find a friend? With high hopes, Howie goes to robotics club. But no one chooses him as a partner.
Then Lincoln bounds into the room. The strange new bird is too big and fluffy. Howie hides!
The teacher, however, puts the unlikely pair together. Will they be able to accept each other's wonky ideas and become friends?
For STEM classes, this story emphasizes the discussion of form v. function. It encourages divergent thinking as Lincoln and Howie design a robot. For kids who are rigid and inflexible, they'll see the value of considering different options, and accepting those who are different.
