Albert's turn
3 August 2013 | by See all my reviews

Albert befriends an older Jewish craftsman. Albert likes him and what he does so much that he gets Charles' permission to work for him after school. Under his apprenticeship, Albert learns a lot about life and treating others kindly. Even in the face of being made fun of at school, Albert stays strong and sides with his friend. Laura, on the other hand, has trouble accepting Albert's friendship but thinks differently after a very stern lecture from her father.

This episode is endearing and really pulls at your heartstring. This is the second episode that refers to bigotry. It's interesting to see some imperfections from main characters such as Laura who has trouble embracing the importance of standing up the the Jewish neighbors. It also really opens your heart to Albert, the newest member of the Ingalls family.
