About the series: Rufus and Ryan is a new series of board books for preschoolers, featuring Ryan, an energetic little boy, and his stuffed monkey Rufus. The series focuses on religious and church concepts, as well as character traits and development. The text is presented in young Ryan's voice as he teaches Rufus about the things he is learning himself. In about 150 age-appropriate words, author Kathleen Bostrom brings a delightfully light touch to the text as she provides an introduction to practices and experiences that many children are exposed to long before they understand why. And children everywhere will relate to the idea of explaining their surroundings to a favorite companion as they go about their daily activities.

Author Kathleen Long Bostrom has created a charming way to explain the events of a church service to youngsters. Youngsters will have fun while learning. In the recent release of her children’s book, RUFUS AND RYAN GO TO CHURCH, Bostrom explains the church activities by way of her young protagonist, Ryan, and his lovable stuffed monkey, Rufus. Ryan explains each event - singing, praying, Bible study, and the need to be quiet - to his beloved companion. Bostrom takes the reader through the regular church service for grown ups in an easy-going manner. Youngsters won’t have any problems keeping up and understanding what is happening. To enhance the story, illustrator Rebecca Thornburgh does an excellent job depicting the activities. Her beautiful and vivid illustrations will capture the reader’s attention and help stress the story’s meaning. The book itself is a sturdy, little board book just the right size for a youngster to hold. The pages are thick and durable, designed to withstand endless hours of reading.
