Using the metaphor of song, the story shows us how every child is unique and brings something new and wonderful to the world.
At the start of the book we see a newborn baby bring a new song in to existence. That song is nurtured with love, shelter, protection and a sense of belonging. Afforded these basic rights, the song soars and explores. On its journey it finds new songs – some loud and some quiet, and some long and some short – but each wonderful in its own way.
In later pages, we learn that no song should be silenced, drowned out or stolen because every song has the right to be heard.
The combination of sensitive lyrical text and gorgeous watercolour illustrations strike just the right chord. It’s deepy moving but also a fantastic springboard for conversations about self-worth and the lives of children around the world.
