The world helps those
Who try and try
And truly work
To fly and fly.

“The Amazing Flight of Little Ray” action video gives a brief peek into the published book written under this same title about a young stingray named Little Ray. This stingray seems to have his head in the clouds when he takes on the huge challenge of flying like a bird. Boredom has no place in children's adventures and developmental experiences. Trying new things is the path to achievement. Little Ray also encourages children to learn about nature. This stingray is fed up with the humdrum of seaworthy, salt-water activities and begins to practice with flight. As often is the case when children try something new, Little Ray faces setbacks along the way. With unexpected help from friends, he succeeds with his dreams of flying. The book and the action video instruction provide fuel for conversation about problem solving and other important matters with your little one.

Goal setting, practice drills and perseverance in the face of adversity are featured and illustrated in action video instruction and in the inspirational book. Little Ray's adventures teach children how stingrays, sharks and armadillos try new things to achieve important life goals. Little Ray encourages children to carry their dreams of flying to new heights at school, at work and at home. The book includes subtle, meaningful insights about meeting life's challenges. Let Little Ray launch your discussions about the importance of parental guidance and oversight of early efforts at trying new things, problem solving and much, much more. This action video features illustrations from “The Amazing Flight of Little Ray”, and provides one of the many inspirational themes from the children's book published by V. R. Duin under this title.
