Region 8 students get to see books come to life

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT)-  Several Region 8 elementary students got to see a story jump off the page with a live show based on books.

Thursday first and fourth graders watched as "The Black Stallion", based on Walter Farley's books, came to life at the ASU Equine Center.  The story came alive with the help of players from the "Arabian Nights Dinner Theater" based out of Orlando, Florida.

Students had to read a book in order to gain admission to the show.  The event was hosted by The Black Stallion Literacy Foundation.

Arkansas is one of only three states that the program visits.
