On an outing with her daycare group, a Chinese-American girl finds a piece of red string on the ground and launches into a series of imaginative scenarios. The "squiggle" becomes a dragon, a wall, a tightrope, fireworks, a thundercloud, and a pool. Her exuberance soon spreads to the entire group of children who easily join in the fun in this elegant yet playful tribute to the imagination. (Ages 3-6)
