It's Little Things that Make a Big Difference

Without any help hundrets of starfish are going to die. They were left behind when the early morning tide receeded.
A man who took a morning walk at the beach saw them and picked one after another up and threw them back into the water.
Can he really help? And what difference does it make? A film made by children (aged 8-9 years) about the stance to accomplish with little things a big difference.
