Albert is always on the lookout for things to fix. If a hinge is rusty, he oils it. If a roof is leaky, he repairs it. When Mr. Jensen's old green pickup needs a new motor, Albert hoists up the truck and drops it in. All his neighbors count on Albert to help them. He is never too busy or too tried to help. But one day Albert is too sick to get out of bed. He's dizzy and his bones ache. When his neighbors find out, they all lend a hand to help Albert. Thanks to his friends, he is quickly on the mend. Author Janet Lord's simple story of generosity repaid is complemented by artist Julie Paschkis's colorful, folk-style illustrations. The result is a timeless story for young children that celebrates the importance of helping others and demonstrates the value of community.
