WILD OCEAN WORLD CONTENT
& BOOKS ABOUT GRIT FOR KIDS
RAY'S FLYING SHOW
The Amazing Flight of Little Ray: It isn't every day that a young, sea-bound stingray decides to fly like a bird. Knowing her son to be brave and young, Mama Ray lets him learn by trying. He beats all odds with his lofty goal. “Little ray of sunshine” proves overused and underwhelming. Little Ray looks beyond humdrum bounds in wild ocean world online content and seafaring books about grit for kids. His head is not in the clouds.
The courage and character strength from nature set examples for children to follow or surpass. The articles on this website explain why fishy fish take to the air, how to avoid getting stung in defensive backlash, how baby stingrays come into the world, describe the tough stuff with which rays are made and tell how long stingray mothers care for their young. Thrilling lessons add deep dimensions to everyday living and learning.
RAYS AND SHARKS
Little Ray & Shark Patch Things Up: Before this tale ends, the boat has a hole in the hull, the engine is dead and a circling shark hasn't eaten. A whole lot of grit is needed for kids, adults and animals to fix this mess. Despite natural conflict between stingrays and sharks, this seafaring adventure proves first impressions can be wrong. Unusual friendships form on land and at sea when a rogue shark reels in unexpected help.
Website articles give testimony to the pitfalls of stereotyping sharks as mindless eating machines. 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. Some rugged types with razor-sharp teeth and toothy scale spikes can go where noxious parasites dare not venture. Their many unique abilities serve science.
The Foxy Armadillos: Few people have an opportunity to meet members of this endangered species. They are nocturnal. Armadillos are not from another galaxy. Book-smart thinking in the engaging series from V. R. Duin gets everyone up to speed. Fast moves and group efforts save a farm family's home. The riveting action and alien-looking animals turn child play into an opportunity for everyone to practice heroism.
Armadillo website information confirms these critters are not landlubbers. Their matchless shape, form and capabilities put the baddest of pirates at envy. 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 sorry luck elsewhere. Teamwork and sensitivity to social consciousness rise to save habitats and preserve the balance of nature.
