Are you curious about what fossils tell us about life on Earth—and how dinosaurs and other ancient animals, in turn, awaken our imaginations to create true and imagined tales? Come along on a journey to find out! The adventure kicks off with children’s book author Elizabeth Shreeve, reading and sharing surprising secrets from her newest book, Out of the Blue: How Animals Evolved from Prehistoric Seas (Candlewick Press, 2021). Elizabeth makes connections between the story of life on Earth and fossils that can be seen in the museum. Harvard College student and Storywish Cofounder Felicia Ho then guides the time-traveling crew in a conversation with Elizabeth about the inspirations and discoveries behind the book—and how to start making your own stories!
