Head, Body, Legs: A Story from Liberia: 01/15/17
Head, Body, Legs: A Story from Liberia by Won-Ldy Paye is a children's picture book retelling of a Liberian creation tale. Many cultures have a story about where mankind came from. This is Liberia's version.
Head is bouncing along doing his thing when he meets up with body. And then legs, arms, hands and feet. They realize that together they can get the delicious cherries hanging from a nearby tree.
Here is a creation story that also has a strong message of cooperation. Differences come together to make a strong, more talented whole. Wouldn't it be nice if more groups thought like that? Think of what the world could accomplish.
The book was recommended to me by my daughter. She read it in school.
