This is a beautiful book about a young bird named Yougen who goes on a journey with a wise old owl named Rufus and on the way learns many valuable life lessons. I was reading it to my 7year old grandson and in one of the chapters called "The Valley of Smoke" Yougen asks why "humans" go to war ? And Rufus says "humans" go to war for different reasons, sometimes even because another has a different color skin. This makes Yougen very sad. After reading this my grandson says " Martin Luther King was killed by a bad man because of the color of his skin. If I was around then I would be on Martin Luther Kings' team. Although the age range for this book says 7-12, I love it myself and I think anyone reading it to a child will enjoy it as much as the child does!

A young thrush named Youngen is having trouble finding her song. As she spends time with her friends who have beautiful feathers and nicer nests than her own, she starts to doubt herself and her parents. Rufus, a wise old owl, notices her discomfort and decides to take her on a journey to learn about the world. As she travels with Rufus, she learns many things about the animals in the forest and about Humans - those strange animals that make war with each other, but also build magnificent cities. And she learns that Humans can also be loving and compassionate, when she finds her own life in danger. As Youngen learns about herself and the world around her, she spontaneously bursts into song - her own unique and very beautiful song. Author Maria J. Andrade has written a sweet novel of a young bird coming of age. She shares tidbits of wisdom about animal life and their habits along the way, to educate while telling her story. Respect for the earth and all animal and plant life is demonstrated through Youngen's words and actions. An uplifting book with a positive message, Youngen Finds Her Song is a delight to read.
