American writer “Ryan Peterson” published a new kids story inspired by the ship stranded in the Suez Canal.
Named “The big ship and the little digger,” the story follows the Egyptian digger, the hero, who managed to set free the Ever given ship from the Suez Canal using only the “little digger.”
According to the official description of the book:
“The Big Ship and the Little Digger” is a story about the power of naive optimism to move impossibly large obstacles that get in your way.
We follow the story of the Big Ship that got stuck in the Suez Canal, teaching kids about the global logistics of container shipping while introducing the Little Digger, who inspired millions with his enthusiastic and very helpful response.
Children everywhere will learn about the power of doing the right thing even when it seems like half the world is laughing at you.
It’s work noting that all proceeds from the purchase of the book will go toward Flexport.org’s humanitarian logistics programs for COVID-19 relief in India.
In 2020 Flexport delivered 425 million units of personal protective equipment and other relief items to frontline healthcare workers on five continents.
