Johnson, Terry L.
What is so great about the Lord’s Day? In this book, children will hear the story of what happens on any given Sunday and why. From resting from our usual jobs to gathering as a church to worship, the Lord’s Day is a special day for honoring the Lord – it’s all in the name! Children will see how The Lord’s Day also helps them trust in Jesus and get ready to live for God on all the other days of the week. Let us learn to love the Lord’s Day. After all, it is the best day of the week!
For ages 2–7 years (2–4 read to me; 5–7 read myself)

“This book is a treasure of helpful ideas and insights for helping parents answer the call of Jesus to ‘let the little children come to me.’ Not only will children be blessed by God as they actively engage in congregational worship, but God will be blessed by children who come! This children’s book will be so helpful for intergenerational congregations who desire the experience of ‘one generation shall laud God’s works to another.’ ” — Robbie Castleman, Professor Emeritus, Theology & New Testament Chair, John Brown University and author of Parenting in the Pew: Guiding Your Children into the Joy of Worship
“Here we are reminded in a fresh way of the great blessing of the Lord’s Day. May this book and its message help families to appreciate the privilege of public worship and come to know the Lord of the Sabbath.” — Carine Mackenzie, Inverness, Scotland. Author of Psalms for My Day: A Child’s Praise Devotional
“Worship is an essential part of the rhythm of a Christian’s life. Yet some of what happens on Sundays can be confusing to children. William Boekestein’s book explains in simple language the pattern and heart of worship each Lord’s Day. Even more, he helps children see how Sunday truly is the best day of the week.” — Christina Fox, author of several books including A Holy Fear: Trading Lesser Fears for the Fear of the Lord and Tell God How You Feel: Helping Kids with Hard Emotions.
