Rufus and Ryan Go To Church

 Rufus and Ryan Go to Church! is a board book that is sure to be a hit with your pre-schooler. Ryan is a 4 year old whose favorite companion is his stuffed monkey. On Sunday morning Ryan and his family go to church and, of course, Rufus goes with them. Ryan explains what is happening to Rufus so he will know when it is time to sing, pray, or to be quiet and listen. They also share play and snack time together.

Even if you attend a church that has a separate pre-school worship area, this is a good book for kids to learn how they should be have in "big" church. At the least, it will explain what you are doing while they are in their own class. It is a simple book with brightly colored illustrations to hold a child's attention and is very sturdy and the perfect size for a child who wants to "read" alone.

Disclaimer: I was provided with a copy of this book for review purposes by FlyBy Promotions. The were no requirements that they review be good---only honest and fair.
