With charm and grace, this celebratory picture book takes young readers through the daily chores and activities of each weekday—from hanging out the wash to jumping Double Dutch—all in anticipation of Sunday. Once this special day finally arrives, it is filled with prayer, song and dance, savory food, storytelling, country drives, and most of all, family warmth and cheer.
Dinah Johnson’s vibrant, engaging language and Tyrone Geter’s handsome illustrations joyfully embrace the faith and spirituality within an African-American community and beyond.
