Mike Mulligan and his Steam Shovel

After working together for many years, Mike Mulligan and his steam shovel, Mary Anne, are told that their services are no longer needed.

Rating: *****

This is classic children’s tale about perseverance and hard work. It’s a great way to discuss technology and how things change but values remain the same.
