I enjoyed reading this book to my 6-year-old son. I knew Arn-Chorn Pond's adoptive father and was pleased by this simple story, told from the point of view of the refugee child. It inspired my son to ask many questions about Cambodia and I believe he learned something important. The illustrations are magnificent.

Every now and then, I come across a story of survival that is truly amazing and defeats all odds. Arn Chorn-Pond's story as told in A Song for Cambodia written by Michelle Lord and illustrated by Shino Arihara is one of them.

Arn had a happy childhood full of music, love, and laughter in his small Cambodian village until Khmer Rouge soldiers invaded his village in 1975 and tore his family apart. A brief history of Khmer Rouge's invasion on Cambodia in the 1970's is included in the foreward. Led by Pol Pot, the intent was to turn Cambodia into a communist country, but the Khmer Rouge used violence and terror in their attempt and ultimately killed 1.7 million men, women, and children during their 4 year reign.

Arn Chorn-Pond was one of the lucky children who survived, but it was not an easy feat. When he was separated from his family, we was sent to a children's work camp. With no shoes and little to eat, Arn was forced to work in the rice paddies. When the soldiers asked for volunteers to join a musical group, Arn volunteered and learned to play the khim, a wooden string instrument. He luckily had a talent for this instrument which ended up saving his life in the camp. Without giving too much away, Arn managed to escape the camp, and through even more adversity, ended up surviving and was adopted by a missionary who brought him to the United States.

The afterword tells how Arn used his good fortune to give back to Cambodia and help rebuild and bring music back to a war-torn country.

Without going into graphic details, Michelle Lord tells the true story of the horrors Arn and many other Cambodians faced. Ms. Lord masterfully tells the story in a way that is appropriate for and not condescending to children, yet she doesn't sugar coat the facts. We see Arn and his mother tearfully clinging to each other as the soldiers invade their village; we see children being led into a forest to be killed; we see Arn struggle with adapting to a new culture and experience nightmares and sadness for the loss of his family. The reader is left with no doubt that something terrible has happened.

Shino Arihara's gouache illustrations are mostly done in muted earth tones, depicting the dark and sad tone of the story. We see brighter colors at the beginning of the story before the invasion and again at the end when Arn plays music in his new home.

At the back of the book is a photograph of Arn Chorn-Pond, smiling and standing in front of a house he's building in Cambodia, and a comprehensive list of sources demonstrates the thorough research Michelle Lord conducted to write Arn's story.

A Song for Cambodia is a touching and inspirational story full of discussion opportunities, making it an excellent addition to a child's home library or a social studies classroom.

The book begins with the happy and relatively carefree days of Arn Chorn-Pond and his family in a rural Cambodian village, with descriptions of a thriving open-air market and the sounds of music and laughter. This way of life quickly changed for Arn when, like they did across Cambodia, the Khmer Rouge soldiers destroyed Arn's village, split up his family, and sent him to a children's labor camp.

Arn may have succumbed to the atrocious conditions at the labor camp were it not for his volunteering to join a musical group meant to entertain the guards. When Arn was sent to fight as a child soldier, he escaped to the Thai border and ultimately was adopted by a volunteer clergyman. In his new American home, Arn used his music to heal on the inside as his nightmares slowly turned into dreams of returning to Cambodia to help others who had survived the pain and suffering.

Michelle Lord and Shino Arihara take on this dark topic with skill and subtlety, yielding a story that is both insightful and moving. The book, appropriate for children who are mature enough to handle such a tough subject, ends with a hopeful tone. Similarly, the illustrations have a realistic but gentle quality. The author provides a detailed afterword about the inspiring humanitarian work that Arn Chorn-Pond has pursued in his adult years in an effort to revive Cambodia's classical arts and music. What a contribution that this man's story, which has been told in leading U.S. newspaper, radio, and television outlets, is now accessible to children in this carefully written and illustrated book.

Arn was a young eight-year-old boy who lived in a Cambodian village with his eleven brothers and sisters, his grandparents and of course his mother and father. It was a very happy home with lots of music and laughter. In 1975, the music seemed to stop when the Khmer Rouge ("Red Khmers") wreaked havoc across the countryside. Arn and his family became very frightened.

One day the soldiers came and brutally separated the family. Arn would never see his mother again after the family was separated to go to work camps. It was a horrible time for the children in his camp. They worked so hard, but they still were starving. "If they were lucky, the children caught dragonflies, beetles, or grubs to eat." The music in his soul might save him, but how?

This is the true story of Arn Chorn-Pond. It is heartbreaking, heartwarming and inspirational somehow all rolled into one. According to Arn, "Everyone has good and bad within them. It is up to us to decide how to live. You can literally change the world." I believe you can.
