The Jester Has Lost His Jingle
In this charming tale, the Jester awakens one morning to find laughter missing in his kingdom, and he and his helpmate, Pharley, set off on a quest to find it. They ultimately discover that not only can laughter redeem a weary world, it can also provide the best tonic for anyone facing seemingly insurmountable obstacles.
This book discusses self-esteem, change and coping during difficult times. We have all heard the old saying, "When life hands you lemons, make lemonade." This book teaches you to realize that the power to change things lies within you and that you have the ability to find something, anything, good with a situation. Laughter truly is the best medicine.
Your program is one that provides an outstanding service to our community.
