Ready for another inspirational children’s book about a newsworthy bird?
Award-winning entertainer Bette Midler has delivered it: The Tale Of The Mandarin Duck, inspired by an actual, colorful feathered friend who camped out in Central Park back in 2018.

You can listen to their conversation on All Things Considered below or read a transcript of the conversation on NPR’s website.
