stingrays, flight, beach days
In The Amazing Flight of Little Ray, a stingray takes to the air on an unforgettable flight. Little Ray, a water-bound stingray, does not believe in limits. He hatches a fine fancy to fly like a bird. His plan leaves land, air and sea chuckling.
With a skip and a jump and a little luck, he soars into the great unknown. It proves to be the ride of a lifetime. It's returning to the big blue sea from the big blue sky that gives him trouble. He'll need a little help to drop back into the sea. Hurray for Little Ray! It isn't every day that a stingray learns how to fly.
LITTLE RAY & SHARK
rays, sharks, friendship
Little Ray and Shark Patch Things Up begins with Little Ray performing an underwater circus. His acrobatics get cheers from boating friends. The splashing brings unwanted attention. A lone, dark fin appears, breaking up the party.
The shark cuts for the boat, making a hole. While his friends bail water, the shark returns to find Ray sticking to the hole like a patch. The shark grabs the anchor chain. As the shark and the boat near the beach, swimmers see the fin and take off screaming. The boaters know better.
armadillos, fun, facts
For Mr. and Mrs. Armadillo, finding an empty fox den big enough for their entire family seems to be a stroke of luck. They move in with their children Sis, Boom, and Ba, and make themselves at home.
The farmers notice right away the holes made by these new critters all over their farm. Not long ago, they had driven the pesky fox away from that hill. Now, they have to figure out what to do with the armadillos. When the armadillos become the next target of the farmers, their children come up with a clever solution.
