Once the fishing village’s pride, the big boat is now silently docked at the port, watching the alternation of the four seasons and the changes of the times. In the story, the big boat is cleverly designed as a participant and a witness of the small fishing village. It witnesses the small fishing village become a big city and people’s lives get better and better.
Through the eyes of the big boat, children see a colorful city. The stories that the big boat has experienced are like the lighthouses in a long river that help the children understand the abstract concept of time and how the change of time influences things. They unravel the secrets of time for the children.
