The Blue Songbird

It's springtime and a young songbird hears the joyous songs of her siblings and desperately wants to sing along-only she doesn't yet know what special tune she can add to their chorus. Encouraged by her mother to leave the nest, the songbird flies off on a quest to find the song that only she can sing. With courage and tenacity, she travels far beyond her golden island home, seeking advice from a crane, an owl, and a mean-looking crow until she finally discovers her own unique voice. Told in gentle, lyrical prose and with bright, beautiful watercolor illustrations that are rich in detail, The Blue Songbird is sure to become a perennial favorite-a story that teaches children to go on adventures and to discover what makes them truly unique. An empowering story for kids of all shapes, sizes, and singing ability.
