The Girl who Collected Her Own Echo is a therapeutic story about finding friendship.
In the story, a little girl lives by herself and loves to sing. One day whilst she is singing in a mysterious cave, she thinks that her echo must be the sound of other children singing, but she is too shy to approach them. When she meets a boy who loved hearing her sing but was too shy to approach her, she realises that they were both lonely and they can sing together as friends.
