Tacky the Penguin was an odd bird. He didn't march like other penguins or sing like other penguins. He did it his way.
This little blue bird is trying to find her way. Her yellow sisters wake up in the morning to sing their beautiful song. The little blue song bird doesn't know her song, yet. She sets out to find the answer to her question, "How do I sing my song?"
This is a journey story that echoes words of Alfred Lord Tennyson, "I am a part of all that I have met." Our little blue bird sets forth on her adventure that covers the globe and builds her song unbeknownst to her as she goes.

A little blue songbird longs to sing like her sisters. But whenever she tries, she cannot get the tune right. Her mother encourages her to leave home and find a song that only she can sing.
With courage and tenacity, she travels the world, seeking advice from a crane, an owl, and a mean-looking crow, and other birds, hoping they will lead her to her special song.
Told in gentle, lyrical prose and with bright, beautiful watercolor illustrations, The Blue Songbird is an empowering story for kids of all shapes, sizes, and singing ability.--from the publisher
