Listen, pay attention, it won't be long before you hear a chirp, there are birds everywhere. Goldfinches, sparrows, robins, swallows, parrots, macaws, pigeons… birds for all tastes and colors. But what if spring comes and you don't hear the nightingale's song? You're going to go out and find him and go on a long adventure, right? There would be no life without birdsong, we agree! But sometimes birds aren't quite birds, or aren't quite birds yet…or are no longer birds. We'll meet December, the girl who will one day fly but for now only climbs trees and… jumps. We will also introduce you to Sadako, a young Japanese woman who is now a national heroine; She didn't jump, she ran, and she was in Hiroshima when the atomic bomb was dropped… Have you ever made a paper crane? Have you ever drawn a bird? Jacques PrĂ©vert will sing us instructions for doing so, in case we want to continue the birds everywhere, the birds that sing, that jump, that run, that fill the pages of life with feathers or paper.
