"Perfectly Me" is about being exactly and perfectly who we are supposed to be. The story begins with a seed sprouting beneath an Oak tree. He looks up and sees the towering tree. In surprise he says "Oh my, I could grow tall like you and give shade to others, just like you do." The wise Oak responds that "we are all important as can be, whether giving or taking the shade from a tree". The Oak continues to encourage the little seed to sprout and grow a stem and leaves. The little seed, not knowing what he will be when he grows up, clings to the idea that he may grow p to be an Oak. The Oak agrees that that might be so, but tells the seed that whatever it grows up to be will surely grow be perfectly it. As the seed grows big leaves and stems, it asks the Oak to look around and see if he sees anything that looks like the seed. The Oak says that he does not see anything that looks like the seed, but that "there is a plan" to keep in mind, "everyone has a job that is perfect" for them, that "if you don't find it, it will find you". The Oak encourages the seed to keep growing, which it does. The seed grows the most beautiful flowers. "You are magnificent... and most perfectly you in every way." The king and queen take a walk through the land, looking for perfect and rare flowers for their party. They are very happy when they come across the most beautiful flowers they have ever seen that have grown from the small seed. As they pick each flower, a more beautiful flower grows and blooms in its place. The plant says, "Well, I never thought... that I'd find my purpose by just being me." The queen and king thank the plant for being so perfect, indeed.
