I loved reading Albert the Fix-it Man by Janet Lord to my kids. Great book for any boy or girl who loves to fix things!

Albert’s neighbors call him the “Fix-It Man” because he can repair anything.

One morning Albert wakes up with a horrible cold, and when Sam the newspaper carrier learns that the Fix-It Man is under the weather, he calls for help. Albert enjoys receiving the care and support of the many neighbors that he has helped and is soon on the mend and looking for things to fix again.

About Us

Hi, my name is Joeli. I live in Oklahoma with my husband and 3 boys. I’m here along side my sister with our blog Role Model Reader. We have an ongoing list of children’s books that promote positivity by celebrating excellent choices and remarkable attitudes that we hope you can use.  We are blogging publicly as we want to connect with other moms, dads, teachers, grandparents or friends who would like to help us along our way by submitting book recommends that can be added to our list. We’ll be writing about all the good things that come from reading a good book. Self awareness, responsibility and ethics and social awareness to name a few. As we blog successfully we hope to grow our book lists with your help and over time have a large library of books to choose from.
