    Your heart immediately goes out to Matica Here she is, a smart, pretty little nine year old girl The keyword is little She is half the size of her five year old brother Not being able to grow like normal children is her handicap It causes the Indians in the village where her father is a teacher missionary to fear her and they shun her.in her loneliness, she befriends a pair of condors Condors are extremely ugly with a long, skinny and bald neck attached to a cumbersome body and they feed on dead things. But Matica sees them as beautiful, strong, graceful, and kind They bond right away and Matica communicates with them and they understand what she says and she understands them.As the friendship develops, the condors entrust her to care for their egg which Matica and her father helped them rescue from poachers, the same poachers who had stolen their egg the year before.She nurtures the egg for several months, keeping it warm and dry As the time nears for it to hatch, she is hoping it will be on her tenth birthday.When the young on...

    This is the story about a missionary family from Australia teaching the Indians in the mountains of Peru, and in particular, their daughter Matica Matica is 9 and was born with a growth disorder which makes her much smaller than she should be for her age She questions her purpose here, being so much smaller than everyone and the Indians make her existence no easier by teasing her because of it and having no friends She then befriends two condors, Tamo and Tia, and manages to save their lone egg from poachers Matica incubates the egg and hatches it, raising the chick, which she names Talon, with the help of its parents The Indians come to be in awe of her for this In the end, her small stature enables her to do what no one else would be able to do.I enjoyed this book, and think that it would be especially encouraging for children living with a disability questioning their place in the world I would l...

    Matica is saying Live life the fullest, as much as you can Smile as much as you can As Crayn said in my book Let your smile change the world, don t let the world change your smile And Smile it s the most beautiful attire And If you don t know how to go on in life, whatever it might be, even if you have a disability, find a condor Not literally, but something you can rely to, something you love doing, something to help others Whatever it is, that makes you happy The condors made Matica happy You have to find yours.Here is the voice of my main character in in my Talon book series, I ll let her introduce herself to you My name is Matica and I am a special needs child with a growth disability I am stuck in the body of a two year old, even though I am ten years old when my story begins in the first book of the Talon series, TALON, COME FLY WITH ME Because of that disability, I am saying that disability, not my disability because it s a thing that happens to me, nothing and because I am not accepting it as something bad I can say that now after I learned to cope with it I was rejected by the local Indians as they couldn t understand that that condition is not a sickness and so it can t be really cured It s just a disorder of my body But I never gave up on life and so I had lots of adventures roaming around the plateau where we live in Peru, South...

    Well, where to start I had picked this book up and put it down again many times, unable to finish it, mainly because I kept getting interrupted or, to my shame, I found I had other things to do I had promised the author a review, but wanted to do it justice as this book demands it So I picked it up again, having read through quickly once and this time took my time, absorbing each chapter of this remarkable story and allowing it to soak into my soul And what a journey this was.This is in many ways a story about a young girl, too small for her age and too different to be like everyone else But it is also a story about courage and inner strength and about one girl s love for life and the animals around her.High up in the Peruvian mountains and hills, on a vast plateau, Matica forms a bond with two Condors, Tamo and Tima She observes them from a distance at first as she and her brother Aikon search for the carcasses of small dead animals to feed these majestic birds with But it is in a special place Matica calls Ramah, that she gets close enough to the birds to finally be able to make contact She eventually gains their trust and learns that she has the ability to understand their body language even what they are thinking.To her family, Matica is a girl desperate for friendship and to the villagers she is an oddity, someone to be feared and even shunned But to these two birds, Matica is...

    Have you ever felt like you would never fit in Of course you have, we all have at one point or another But for some this is not simply being awkward socially, but much For 10 year old Matica, the problem is a physical one She is not growing Despite her age and having a younger brother, Matica has the body of a much younger child which has made her life a real challenge as far as making any friends in the little village in Peru where her parents are missionaries trying to help the local tribe The tribe finds Matica s situation strange and tend not to associate with her, making her lonely than ever.However, Matica does have knack for making friends In this case its a pair of condors, which seems to fascinate the local villagers But they are even surprised when the bond between the undersized girl and the huge birds becomes so strong that when their egg is threatened by poachers they allow her to watch over and care for it Soon the egg hatches and Talon is born The villagers are impressed than ever by the young girl as she helps raise the young condor, becoming an expert on the birds and soon Matica finds herself no longer the source of curious glances but a bit of a celebrity But her true love for family and her condors never takes a backseat to this new status Her dedication to both her families is unwavering and continues to grow just as quickly as ...
