              The Yellow Bird Sings (Audio disc / Other, Unabridged edition)

              As Nazi soldiers round up the Jews in their town, Roza and her 5-year-old daughter, Shira, flee, seeking shelter in a neighbour's barn. Hidden in the hayloft day and night, Shira struggles to stay still and quiet, as music pulses through her and the farmyard outside beckons. To s...oothe her daughter and pass the time, Roza tells her a story about a girl in an enchanted garden: The girl is forbidden from making a sound, so the yellow bird sings. He sings whatever the girl composes in her head: high-pitched trills of piccolo, low-throated growls of contrabassoon. Music helps the flowers bloom. In this make-believe world, Roza can shield Shira from the horrors that surround them. But the day comes when their haven is no longer safe, and Roza must make an impossible choice: whether to keep Shira by her side or give her the chance to survive apart. Inspired by the true stories of Jewish children hidden during World War II, Jennifer Rosner's debut is a breathtaking novel about the unbreakable bond between a mother and a daughter. Beautiful and riveting, The Yellow Bird Sings is a testament to the triumph of hope - a whispered story, a bird's song - in even the darkest of times.

              The girl is forbidden from making a sound, so the yellow bird sings. He sings whatever the girl composes in her head: high-pitched trills of piccolo; low-throated growls of contrabassoon. The bird chirps all the musical parts save percussion, because the barn rabbits obligingly t...hump their back feet like bass drums, like snares. Music helps the flowers bloom. When the daisies grow abundant, the bird weaves a garland for the girl to wear on her head like a princess--though no one can see. She must hide from everyone in the village: soldiers, the farmhouse boys, the neighbors too. The lady with squinty eyes and blocky shoes just dragged a boy down the street and returned, proud and straight-backed, cradling a sack of sugar like a baby. --The Yellow Bird Sings What would happen if your five-year-old child was a musical prodigy who could hear symphonies in her head? What if you had to keep her silent and hidden for months during wartime in German-occupied Poland? After all of the Jews in their town are rounded up and killed during WWII, R za and her daughter, Shira, find themselves hiding in a farmer's barn. Shira has difficulty staying still and quiet, as music pulses inside her. To pass the time, R za tells Shira a story: There is a little girl who, with the help of her yellow bird, tends an enchanted garden. The garden must be kept silent--only the bird can sing the girl's musical compositions--and together the girl and her bird avert many threats. Thus R za manages to soothe Shira and shield her from the horrors around them. But then the day comes when their haven is no longer safe and R za must face an impossible choice: whether to keep Shira by her side, or give her the chance to survive apart. The Yellow Bird Sings is a powerful, beautiful, heartrending novel about the unbreakable bond between a mother and a daughter, and the triumph of hope and beauty even in the darkest of circumstances.
