This whimsical, cuddle-up-and-read book tells the story of an elderly man's daily routine of selfless love and service to others. Mr. Peters is retired and widowed. But he doesn't feel like that's any reason to sit around and mope.

Every Monday morning they stroll around the neighborhood, always stopping at the church to pat the maple tree planted in memory of his wife.

When Mr. Peters hears about some needy children, he sacrifices his routine--and much more--to help them.
