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.

About the Author
MJ Mouton grew up in the small town of Iowa, Louisiana. After school, he went to work in the environmental field and developed a love for the science that was present in his job. There were so many amazing things about the Earth that he had not realized, or was not inspired to know as a student in school. Realizing these things, he became passionate, not only about Geology, Biology, and the physical nature of things, but also sharing what he had learned. As the father of two girls and a lover of all things scientific, MJ decided to write short stories to teach his daughters science basics, and hopefully give them the inspiration that he missed out on that young in life. He created over 40 stories that highlight scientists and the world-changing discoveries that they made, including Charlie and the Tortoise. M.J. shares his time between the area he grew up and Chicago.
