A charming tale of friendship, community, and resourcefulness. Expertly written and beautifully illustrated, "Every Monday Morning" is a book that will warm the hearts of its readers as they become part of a world in which people care, and friendship matters.
Every day, people go about the world busily, consumed with the small details of life and living. Every once in a while, someone stops their routine and makes time to help someone in need. These moments of service and caring, whether small or large, have the cumulative effect of making our world a better place for us all.

In her new book Every Monday Morning (Kregel Kidzone, July 2005, hardcover, 32 pages), author Linda Hutton tells the tale of one little corner of the world, one special man (and his loveable dog), and his efforts to help someone in need.

Mr. Peters is a creature of habit. Each day, he ventures through his neighborhood with his beloved dog Joey. He's the type of neighbor who takes time to say hello and to introduce himself to strangers. His daily walk takes him past the tree he's planted in honor of his late wife. He always stops to lovingly pat the tree. Mr. Peters doesn't seem to stray too much from his routine. He even tells the same jokes and stories, but those in his neighborhood love and appreciate him and always laugh at his stories.

Upon learning of a group of people in great need, Mr. Peters becomes so engrossed in his loving plan to help and serve that his routine falls apart. During the course of one non-routine week, he does something simple, yet extraordinary, to help a special group of needy children.

Every Monday Morning features lovely watercolor artwork by Karen O. Murley and a story that will emphasize the importance, and rewards, of Christian service to every soul, whether child or adult, who's fortunate enough to discover this book. It offers encouragement and an example - each of us can depart from the bustle of our own everyday commitments to make our own little corners of the world better for everyone.
Reading these reviews, I got this book for my daughter.

She got very bored with it, and I was disappointed in the

lackluster writing. As a college professor, besides being

a mother and a book reviewer, I found that this author

hasn't learned to "show, not tell." It looks like this is

the author's first book, so of course there is room for

improvement in the future. I just would pass on this one.
Every now and then I discover a wonderful children's book that makes sense to share with my grandson, Holden. Such is the case for Every Monday Morning by Linda Hutton. Here is a delightfully captivating story with a message of giving to others that every child should hear. What I like most about Every Monday Morning is that it encourages Holden to think about doing the right thing- rather than just telling him what to do. Great book.
