PAA Dinosaurs Before Dark
Sedalia Elementary - Outreach Program
The Performing Arts Academy invites Sedalia Elementary students to sing and dance in Dinosaurs Before Dark KIDS. Magic Tree House: Dinosaurs before Dark KIDS is an adaptation of the first of Mary Pope Osborne's award-winning fantasy adventure books from the Magic Tree House book series, which has sold more than 100 million copies and is available in more than 100 countries around the world. Jack and Annie’s tree house transports them back in time to the age of the dinosaurs, where the siblings courageously learn that things are not always what they seem.
Based on Magic Tree House #1: Dinosaurs Before Dark By Mary Pope Osborne
