Rufus and Ryan Go To Church! Review and Giveaway! 10/14





By  Kathleen Long Bostrom
In Rufus and Ryan Go to Church!, four-year-old Ryan explains to his stuffed monkey, Rufus, what is happening as they attend church on Sunday morning. He lets Rufus know when it’s time to sing and to pray and to be quiet. Author Kathleen Bostrom brings a delightfully light touch to the text as she provides an introduction to an experience that most children are exposed to long before they understand why. And children everywhere will relate to the idea of explaining their surroundings to their favorite companions as they go about their daily activities.

My Review~
This is such a cute board book for children. As Ryan loves going to church and he takes Rufus with him every Sunday! He explains everything to him and it is in a language that all children will not only understand but love reading about it. I like that he tells Rufus that it is time to sing and Ryan sings the loudest even though he does not know all the words! My grandchildren loved this book,and I am sure that it will be read many times over. I love that it is a board book so it will last through many readings and grandchildren!
