The Laughing River: A Folktale for Peace
By Elizabeth Haze Vega
Illustrated by Ashley Smith
Ages 4-11 years

Once upon a time, not so very long ago, two fanciful tribes -- the Funga and the Alafia -- lived beside the banks of a long and lazy laughing river. Although each tribe's people were handsome and skilled, they were very different, and they did not get along. As time passed, the Funga grew increasingly annoyed by their Alafia neighbors' loud singing and decided to attack and "teach them a lesson." To reach the Alafia Village, however, the Funga had to cross The Laughing River, and what transpired there resulted in fun for all. It's a story that fills hearts and minds with laughter and peace.

Accurate musical notes, which create an unforgettable song by story's end, accompany each page of art and text. The book also includes dancing, singing, and drumming instructions. Orff approach is used.

The book includes:

  • Easy-to-follow music
  • Instructions for making a drum
  • Instructions for playing a drum
  • Dance steps and hand motions to accompany The Laughing River songs
