Albert the Fix-it Man

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.

One Boy

Book Cover from BN.com

Laura V. Seeger

ONE BOY is a perfect example of the concept book “—a die-cut book exploring counting and words-within-words, and the power of art and imagination. At the start, there is a sad boy surrounded by empty, lonely chairs. At his feet is a bag with paint brushes peeking out. The text reads “ONE boy” which — with a turn of the page and a look through a cleverly cut hole — turns into “all alONE.” Page after page, the book becomes populated with seals, apes, and monkeys, all examples of words-within-words. Finally, readers come back to “ONE boy” who is “all dONE,” to discover where all the characters came from.

I'm Really Not Tired

Book Cover from BN.com

Lori Sunshine

Even before Dad tucks him in, Samuel McKay has devised a plan to find out what really goes on in his house after bedtime — he waits until Dad has shut the light before tiptoeing out of his room with his trusted furry accomplice, Petey Bear, determined to find the truth. Sam imagines fish swimming in the bathroom pipes, a thousand toy trains in the basement, a zoo in the guest room, and a rocket in Dad's parking place. Each wildly imagined activity is highlighted on the wall by Pete's flashlight beam as the daring pair quietly and carefully creep through the house. They persist, finally reaching the den and the moment of truth. Sam's parents, of course, are simply relaxing; Dad does the crossword, and Mom is reading. Disappointed, Sam and Petey trudge back up to bed. This rhyming adventure will prove once and for all that kids aren't missing out on anything special after bedtime. Or are they? In the final image, Mom and Dad are eating pink ice cream and cake at a private little party, perhaps celebrating that they've won the bedtime battle — at least until tomorrow night.
