Found this book at They sure pick great books (Teddy's Button has got to be a classic of "theirs").
A sweet story about a poor boy who is encouraged to become "honest and
industrious" and tries hard to do so, asking God for help. Some elements in the story: honesty, (not) stealing, struggling alcoholic father, big Sunday-school push. A short easy read to encourage kids to work faithfully and to ask God for His mercies in life's struggles. Last chapter title "A Pleasant Ending" sums up the conclusion.
