A contemporary story that shows that no matter their circumstances, kids can always give the gift of friendship.

- Publisher Benjamin, sad and lonely in his wheelchair, receives help from two angels when they create the opportunity for him to fix his old friend Tony's flat bicycle tire.

- Publisher Ben Brewer is stuck. Stuck in the blues. All he really wants--and needs--is a friend. Somebody to play with. To tell jokes and share stories with. To race up and down the street with, like the other kids do on their bikes. ^Tony, Ben's neighbor, has a brand new bike that he's going to ride in the neighborhood race on Saturday. But he doesn't want to go alone, so he invites Ben to come along. ^What Ben doesn't know is that Tony often feels lonely. He needs a friend too. ^And what neither boy knows is that God has a plan. With some heavenly help, Ben and Tony are both about to discover the friend that's been there all along. ^Your children need friends. Buddies who know them inside and out, and who love them the way they are. ^But just as importantly, they can be a friend. ^God has given each child gifts and talents. Some are comedians. Others are listeners. Some are adventurers. Others are dreamers. Each one of them, with their strengths and weaknesses, has a unique personality withsomething to offer--the ability to be a friend. ^As an adult you may have already learned that when we give all that we have, we not only meet another's needs, but usually our own as well. That is the wonderful paradox of God's design--we need each other. Let this beautifully illustrated story from the pages of the award-winning book "Tell Me the Truth help you share this wonderful reality with your children. ^Encourage them to discover the joy that comes not only from reaching out to others, but from finding that they have a place, a purpose, a valuable role that God wants them to fulfill in someone else's life.

- Publisher Though they are neighbors, neither boy realizes how much they need each other. Ben is stuck in a wheelchair and isolated, while Tony is lonely because of his dad's business trips and his mom's new baby. But then two angels come up with a plan to rekindle the friendship the boys once shared!
