A Bike for Jack

"A Bike for Jack" is the true story of a young boy who wanted a bicycle more than anything else in the world.Jack loved to explore, and he needed wheels to transport him all around the community. He asked his father to buy him a bike, but his father flatly refused. Jack, however, was fortunate in having an ally in his family's gardener, an elderly and very wise man known as "Uncle Billy." Uncle Billy began by showing his young friend how to sharpen the blades on a lawn mower, advising Jack that he could make his own money by mowing the lawns of his neighbors. After Uncle Billy made it possible for Jack to receive a beat-up bicycle from a neighbor, a new world opened up for this boy who gained independence through ingenuity and hard work.
