Spiro the Salty Sooty Sea Hare tells the tale of a little sooty sea hare who learns a very valuable lesson on the power of his words. Through a series of planned and chance interactions with other little sea creatures living on land and in the sea, Spiro learns he has the power to tear down or build up others with the words he speaks. He learns that being salty and speaking harsh words is a big no-no. He learns that being sweet and speaking kind words is the way to go. The book includes a glossary and a “Let’s Talk about It” section for parents and teachers to reinforce the lesson with their children.
