The premise for The First Song is, peace is obtainable through open communication. In the case of this children’s book, peace was obtained in the jungle village 30,000 years ago by singing together; people with people of other ethnicities, and animals with animals, and people with animals. All the jungle inhabitants bonded in friendship while singing together, the first song ever made up! There were very few howls and growls anymore, and best of all, there was no killing each other. These new friends discovered other means of survival.
