Rufus and Ryan Go To Church! is an adorable board book written by Kathleen Long Bostrom and Illustrated by Rebecca Thornburgh. This wonderful little story takes readers through a day of church-- the singing, the service, the prayers, and even snack time! Its purpose is to familiarize young children with what happens during church and encourage them to talk about it and feel a part of it.
Baby Z and I love this book and we read it every night. It's pretty accurate about what happens at our kid-friendly church. The only difference is instead of snacks and juice, we get milk and donuts so we talk about that. "Look! They get juice and cookies! What do we eat at church? We get donuts and milk!" Rufus and Ryan Go To Church is the first book of this series that we've had the pleasure of owning. Right now, there is also Rufus and Ryan Say Their Prayers out as well. I can't wait to get a hold of that one to add to our night story/prayer time!
