The Dump Man's Treasures by Lynn Plourde
Mr. Pottle, who oversees the town dump, cannot bear to destroy books, so he recycles them for the community to enjoy. When Mr. Pottle falls and the community's children deliver books to him to speed his recovery, they discover the book-loving dump man cannot read. A town full of willing tutors then teaches Mr. Pottle to read so he can fully enjoy his treasures. An enjoyable story, it also delivers a heartwarming message.
