Have you ever heard of a bird that could not sing? Neither had we, until we met this poor little thing! This is a story about a very small bird, who for a very long time went completely unheard. The Bird Who Could Not Sing is a wonderful poem by Sofia Daley, which conveys a didactic message to the readers through the efforts of a small bird. She recalls her mother's saying, "When there is a will, there is a way", and creates a narrative of triumph in the face of adversity. There is always a light at the end of every tunnel, so, will the small bird find his own melody?

Having been born in London, Sofia moved to Hong Kong at the age of eight, and to Spain five years later. With a passion for story-telling, Sofia began to write from a very early age, winning her first short story competition at fourteen in Spain. She went on to win several more prizes, publishing work in both English and Spanish. This story is inspired by Sofia’s own journey in overcoming challenges and learning to find her strength within, rather than looking for external validation.
