Rachel Hears a Song : The Heroics of a Young Rachel Carson
by M. J. Mouton and Jezreel Cuevas and Mark Plotkin




Overview -
Rachel Hears A Song is a tale about the fragile nature of our planet and human interaction. There is no Planet B, this is our one and only Earth. It's not just our home, but home to all the animals and plants that work together to keep the important balance of our beautiful planet. It is a story that shows that someone has to be brave enough to question things that may seem beneficial on the surface, but could have irreversible consequences. Rachel Carson was that person.

Rachel noticed something peculiar. Where were all the birds? A question that she needed to find the answer to. With no birds to sing the wonderful sounds of Spring, the forest would be silent. Follow Rachel on a wondrous tale of how a determined girl, a serious question, and the curiosity to find an answer can change the world.

Rachel meets an old crow that points her to the likely reason for the fact that there are fewer birds. They embark on a mission to explain to farmers that the materials they are spraying on the fields may be affecting more than they know. She challenges them with a single question, "We know how it helps us, but how does it hurt?" A question that started the environmental movement.
