About this item
The dinosaur fossils in the museum come to life (and sing, dance, and eat gingerbread) in this rollicking twist on the classic poem 'Twas the Night Before Christmas. And with the enclosed CD, children of all ages can enjoy dinosaur-themed Christmas party music, and hear the story read aloud by the Today Show's Al Roker! A portion of the proceeds from the sale of the book goes to support the American Museum of Natural History in New York, where the story is set.
Every Christmas Eve, the dinosaur fossils in the museum come to life to sing, dance, eat gingerbread, and celebrate, in a book that includes a CD with bonus songs such as "We Wish You a Dino Holiday" and "Deck the Halls with Stegosaurus." Read by Al Roker. 25,000 first printing.
