Book Review and Free Book~Rufus and Ryan Go to Church!

We had the opportunity to review the book Rufus and Ryan Go to Church by Kathleen Long Bostrom. Perfect since I have a 2 and 5 year old. My oldest really liked it and I asked her what she learned from the book and if she liked it. She said about going to church and praying. She said she also really liked it. My son liked pointing out the monkey in the book. My take, it is a nice board book, very durable, great illustrations, and quick short read, to the point! I would recommend this book for little one's.

I have the opportunity for one of my readers to win their very own copy of this book. Make a comment on my blog and please be sure to leave me a way of contacting you. I will randomly draw a winner on September 20, 2013.



FROM THE PUBLISHER:
Rufus and Ryan Go 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.
