Description
A magical retelling of a creation story from Liberia. "Long ago, Head was all by himself. He had no legs, no arms, no body. He rolled everywhere." Head is all alone. Body bounces along, Arms swing about, and Legs stand around. They can't do much by themselves, so they try to join together. But how? Should Head attach to the belly button? Should Legs stand on Arms? If only they can work together, everything will be perfect. This vibrant, joyous retelling of a traditional Liberian creation story shows how much can be accomplished with a little cooperation.
