   Plot: Conflict and Resolution
• Beth and her brother, Jack, were flying Beth’s
  new kite in the park. They did not see the kite
  was flying too close to a tree. Suddenly, the kite
  was blown right into the branches. It was stuck!
  Beth pulled on the kite string, but it would not
  come out. Jack tried to pry the kite out tree with
  a stick. He was too short to reach the kite.
  Then Beth had an idea. I’ll shake the tree
  branches while you pull on the string. Sure
  enough, the kite came loose and fell out of the
  tree!.
