Have you been looking for a cute way to teach your child about church etiquette? Perhaps you know a child who hasn’t been to church and needs a guided lesson before attending. Or maybe you know a child that enjoys sharing about church with others.
In Rufus and Ryan Go to Church! children learn about the process of attending a church service from beginning to end. Ryan, a cute little boy with brown hair, LOVES to attend church service. Rufus is Ryan’s favorite stuffed Monkey, only to Ryan, Rufus is so much more! Ryan cannot wait to share Church with Rufus as he takes him along for the day.
Ryan and Rufus sing, read the bible, and pray together. They also share in snack time, one of Ryan’s favorite parts of Church. Ryan even shares a cookie with Rufus! At the end of the day, Ryan can hardly wait for next Sunday when he gets to do it all over again!
This adorable book is written to help prepare children for Church service. It would make a great gift for parents who have just adopted a child, grandparents who are taking their grandchildren to church for the first time, and children that love to carry their stuff loved ones, just like Ryan!
I really enjoyed this book and sharing it with my children. My older children are a little too old for the book but my sweet 5 year old is just the right age. She loved seeing Rufus and watching and listening as Ryan shared his day with Rufus and with us!
Rufus and Ryan Go to Church! is available from Ideals Books for $7.99 and is well worth the price! It is a board book, perfect for those little hands with sturdy pages to use as a carry along. The illustrations are colorful and cute, sure to keep little ones entertained as you read.
