A tiny tugboat overcomes her fears of a turbulent storm to save a stranded barge in this timeless tale of persistence.
When faced with a tough challenge, Little Scoot only tries harder. Sent into a gathering storm to rescue a barge that’s run aground, Little Scoot is tempted to turn around. But though she’s scared of the squall, she perseveres through thunder, lightning, blustery winds, and swamping waves, reminding herself “Little Scoot never quits!” This triumphant tale is a testimony to the power of determination.
