A magical retelling of a Liberian creation story

Head is all alone. Body bounces along. Arms swing about. Legs stand around. They can’t do much by themselves, so they try to work together. But how?

This vibrant, joyous retelling of a traditional Liberian creation story shows how much can be accomplished with a little cooperation.
