Reading and Bonding with Stingrays

20 June, 2023 @ 8:00 am - 20 July, 2023 @ 5:00 pm EDT

Little Ray nature-based stories turn fear to respect and fascination. Children ages 3-8 and special needs individuals of any age identify with the stingray that brought our organization to life.

Little Ray Children’s Books is a 501(c)(3) public charity. The books and website for this organization support literacy, mental health, animal appreciation and conservation.

Little Ray Children’s Books foster teamwork, achievement, adaptability and problem-solving.

Zoos, aquariums and nature centers can put a relevant spin on these children’s stories to:

–Calm blind fear of wild animals.
–End self-critical thoughts, depression, boredom, anger and anxiety.
–Replace negative feelings with a positive, simple and natural approach to safety, preservation and acceptance.

Parents, students, general and special ed teachers find Little Ray Children’s Books to be consistent with population trends and cultural needs. We welcome an opportunity to discuss the potential for a collaborative program with your organization.
