Albert has a tool for every job, and he’s never too busy or too tired to fix things for his neighbors.
Albert is always on the lookout for things to fix. If a hinge is rusty, he oils it. If a roof is leaky, he patches 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. But one day Albert is too sick to get out of bed. He’s dizzy and his bones ache. What will happen when Albert is the one that needs help?
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 that celebrates the importance of helping others and the value of community.

Albert is the town fit-it man. He goes around to everyone's house and fixes anything imaginable. One day, Albert wakes up with a terrible cold and can't get out of bed! All the people he has helped come over and take care of him and he feels better in no time. A very precious book that teaches that if you do good things, good things will happen to you.
