Rufus and Ryan Go To Church by Kathleen Long Bostrom a review and BOOK GIVEAWAY

ABOUT RUFUS AND RYAN GO TO CHURCH
In Rufus and Ryan Go to Church! 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.
About the series: Rufus and Ryan is a new series of board books for preschoolers, featuring Ryan, an energetic little boy, and his stuffed monkey Rufus. The series focuses on religious and church concepts, as well as character traits and development. The text is presented in young Ryan's voice as he teaches Rufus about the things he is learning himself.

In about 150 age-appropriate words, author Kathleen Bostrom brings a delightfully light touch to the text as she provides an introduction to practices and experiences that many children are exposed to long before they understand why. And children everywhere will relate to the idea of explaining their surroundings to a favorite companion as they go about their daily activities.

MY REVIEW
  Rufus and Ryan Go to Church by Kathleen Long Bostrom is a sweet, lovely book that your young child or grandchild will love. Also fantastic for a giveaway to your Sunday School children.
  Ryan is a very charming character who loves church and his monkey Rufus. He talks about his favorite parts of church and can’t wait to go each week.
  The board book makes it so easy for your young child to look at the pictures and read and reread as the young usually do. The pictures are so very colorful and full of happy faces. The church and the day are bright and beautiful.
   This is just the book for your young child who loves to look at pictures and read. I highly recommend this book.
