2nd Grade Field trip to the Flynn

Our 2nd Grade class will visit the Flynn to see "Mufaro's Beautiful Daughters, An African Cinderella Story".

An audience favorite, this beautiful adaptation of John Steptoe’s Caldecott Award-winning book reveals the splendor of Zimbabwe with traditional chanting, drumming, and dance. Unlike the Cinderella variants in many other cultures, this tale’s notion of beauty is more than skin-deep: goodness, generosity, and integrity prevail when kind Nyasha wins the king’s hand over her selfish and spoiled sister. Acknowledged by critics as a breakthrough book for inspiring African American children to take pride in their ancestry, the story is even more powerful onstage, performed by the stellar Dallas Children’s Theater.
