Why The Mandiaka Laughs! is a tale about personal beauty, self-worth and hope for each new day of your life. It is the story of the Mandiaka, a mythical African bird who is transformed by an encounter with its creator at a moment of sadness and rejection.
It is a wonderful conversation starter with children about beauty and worth and what we can do to make ourselves more beautiful and how to value ourselves more each day. It is a hopeful story about the beauty that can be discovered in us individually and collectively each and every day.
