Do you have what it takes to endure a tough situation and not give up? Do you have grit? What is grit? How does one explain this intangible quality to children? Grit, Not Grits shares one day in the lives of two friends.

Sam, who has Cerebral Palsy, is a role model to Leo who is learning about grit. A baseball theme and humor are used to explain this important trait to children. After understanding the meaning of grit, Leo is motivated to do what we hope all children learn to do in their lives -- reach out and include someone.

Leo and Sam are bound together by one word. No, not grits like oatmeal; they find a superpower deep inside that makes them want to try. Grit, Not Grits
