News From The Happy Side


To go along with The Sea Knows, Alice and Alan provide an energetic, interactive assembly where students explore and participate in the magic and mystery of the underwater world and exercise their creativity and imaginations. 

Dig Deep Explorers (Pre-K – Grade 2)

Also offered as a Virtual Program

Help young explorers learn to observe the natural world (even their own backyards) by starting with what they know and then asking questions which will help them reach wide and dig deep. This energetic program includes an interactive reading of The Sea Knows, activities, music, and more!
