Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“Weekdays are for school and Saturday’s for having fun. But Sunday is the Lord’s Day. Sunday is for God.”

A boy longs to play in the river on this hot summer day, but instead he has to sit quietly in a pew. His collar itches and his tie’s too tight—why does the Lord care whether people get dressed up for church, anyway? But as hymns and prayers fill the room, he begins to appreciate the simple beauty of a day set aside for family and prayer. At the end of the service, he explains a prayer to his little sister by whispering, “The Lord will take care of us no matter what. Like Momma and Daddy”—a deeply comforting message for young readers.

Synopsis:

Longing to play on a hot Sunday morning during which he fidgets uncomfortably in a church pew, a boy is inspired by the hymns and prayers of those surrounding him and comes to a greater understanding of the importance of Sunday as a day for faith and family.

Synopsis:

A young boy describes the events and activities that make Sunday a special day.
