"DINOSAURS a story of survival"
Celeste joins Moon on a journey through time for an exciting adventure about the dinosaurs and the Earth as they were in the very distant past.
Like most children, Celeste is fascinated with dinosaurs. As she is preparing a talk for her class about how they went extinct, Moon, a very wise and magical character, poses a tantalizing question: what if I told you that there are still dinosaurs among us?
Join Celeste and Moon on a journey through time for an exciting adventure to experience Earth as it was in the very, very distant past.
Witness the fascinating transformations these animals underwent over millions of years, creating giant creatures, armored beasts, and super-predators until the day a cataclysmic impact event caused a mass extinction on Earth.
But all is not lost. Celeste discovers the key to their survival.
