Which meant that the chance to review Rufus and Ryan Go to Church, by Kathleen Long Bostrom came at JUST the right time!
This is an adorable board book for children age 2-5, available from Ideals Books for $7.99.
Preschooler, Ryan explains to his stuffed monkey, Rufus, what happens as they attend church on a Sunday morning.
Little Bit and I settled down in the chair to read this book together. Since we go to church on Sabbath (Saturday), I made that adjustment to the story as I read it. The other thing is, at Ryan's church, there is juice and cookies after church. Since our church doesn't do that, we talked about how different churches do things differently, and I likened it to the potluck lunch that we participate in at the church a couple times a month.
I think Little Bit's "review" is summed up by her response when we finished reading the book. "Read it again Mommy!" I think we read the book three times in a row that first day.
If you have a little one who needs a reminder about how to sit quietly in church, this is a fun little book to help them understand, and now you have the chance to win your own copy.
