When a big ship blocked the Suez Canal in March 2021, it brought global trade
to a halt. Who could free her and get the world moving again?

Far more than a history lesson, The Big Ship and the Little Digger teaches
children (and adults) the power of optimism, teamwork, and knowing you
can do something big even if you're small.
