This is a great picture book showing the importance of Sunday as the Lord's day. I really liked the illustrations that were made to look like they were over printed hymns, scripture texts, and other church-related things. The text shows what happens in an African-American family on Sunday morning before church, during church, and after church. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0375841881, Hardcover)

“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.
