Taking a Time Out to Help Others
Book Review – Every Monday Morning by Linda Hutton
Reviewed by Lisa M. Hendey

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.
