The old fish looked at me with his big round eyes. ‘In the shallows there are strange things floating in the water that trap us, wrapping around us so we can’t swim. The creatures that eat these strange things die. And now we’re finding the floating things out in deeper water as well. We’re fearful about what this means for the future of all marine creatures and the Great Coloured Forest’
Song Bird is back – and this time she has ventured to Green Turtle Island with her family for some rest, relaxation and of course learning more about turtles and the Great Barrier Reef.
But somehow Destructo has made his way to the island as well and is causing wide spread destruction on the pristine environment so many creatures call home.
But Song bird aka Rosie Bird is now on her fourth adventure in the Song Bird series as she has grown in strength, self confidence and self belief
She still fights for the environment with her friends but there is something about her in this series where the reader knows she has found her feet and truly believes in her abilities.
Song Bird: Great Barrier Reef Rescue by Karen Tyrrell is my favourite of the series so far. I feel like not only do I know Song Bird but the story flows with much more ease.
Aspects of children showing that they can save the world without the help of adults is great, and although the adults do give them a helping hand here and there it really shows how important it is for us to allow children to make a difference and for their voices to be heard too.
The world needs more love and forgiveness. It’s easier to be kind than evil.
Song Bird: Great Barrier Reef Rescue by Karen Tyrrell is a pertinent book for our time as it shows how important friendship is, working together and of course looking after the world we live in.
This book covers all of those big issues in a heart-racing adventure in the present day and back in time that not only teaches the reader facts about the coral reef and the animals that live there but also how to problem solve and think creatively.
If this is the first time you have come across Song Bird, make sure you check her out in the previous three books and over on Karen Tyrrell’s website.
It was up to – all us kids – to care for the reef, to protect our future.
It was up to us.
