"Little JesÃ¢us is excited to spend a Saturday with his landscaper PapÃ¢a at the "family business." He loves PapÃ¢a's cool truck and all the tools he gets to use. PapÃ¢a even puts him in charge of the magical water jug, which is also a clock! When it's empty, PapÃ¢a explains, the workday will be done. It's a big job, and JesÃ¢us wants to do it right. But he just can't help giving water to an array of thirsty animals--a dog in a sweater, some very old cats, and a flock of peacocks. Before he knows it, the magical water jug is empty--but the workday's not over yet! Will JesÃ¢us be fired?! Or is the jug not really magical after all?"--
