Natural Grit

This children's book about stingrays shows how to follow or surpass nature-set courage and character strength. Little Ray faces life with true grit. Baby stingrays quickly learn to navigate their dangerous world. Not all stingray mothers care for their young. The tough stuff with which rays are made helps kids turn "can't" to "can" with their most lofty of goals.

These apex predators can punch holes in boats, turn on their young and snatch prey from beaches or in flight. They also protect friends and travel long distances to party with them. The rugged species with razor-sharp teeth and toothy scale spikes in this shark attack adventure show the way to significant partnerships. Sharks' unique abilities to serve science and everyday learning belongs in more books about shark attacks.

These critters prove to be anything, but boring landlubbers. Their matchless shape, form and capabilities put the “baddest” of pirates at envy in water. Wild interactions and interesting lessons disrupt the status quo when, where and in ways least expected. The wiliest of foxes may want to try their luck elsewhere. The teamwork and socially-consciousness sensitivity in this armadillo children's book rise to save habitats and preserve the balance of nature.

These smart and handy raccoons become heroes, while creating sympathy for themselves and for the animal they rescue from an environmental hazard. The educational, entertaining and inspiring story fosters awareness of animal interactions. This book about raccoons shows how eco-system vulnerabilities can be prevented by humans. When kids share these important insights with others, they help to keep our wild heritage alive for the benefit of future generations.
