Rufus and Ryan Go To Church! Book Review & Giveaway

Do you know a little one ages 2 to 5? Maybe even teach a group of kids this age at church? I have the perfect book for you. Rufus and Ryan Go To Church!  You can save it for Christmas, maybe even a birthday gift, or donate it to your church. This book is perfect for church nurseries and preschools!

It has even been a fun read for my 6 year old. She was able to read some of the book herself. She even got the idea that maybe she should take her American Girl Doll to church. ;-)

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.

This is just one of the first titles in a new series of inspirational books for preschoolers. Also available is Rufus and Ryan Say Their Prayers. 

Who wants their very own copy of this book? All you have to do is answer the one mandatory question in a Disqus comment below then put your entries on the Rafflecopter form. Bonus entries are available. This giveaway is open internationally!

Who will you share your copy of Rufus and Ryan Go To Church! with?
