The book will be a great read to the kids, grandkids, and other kids, in the neighborhood.
Stacie D. Wyatt
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.

As I have stated in previous posts I love, love to get children's books to review. My children love to be read to and we are always looking for new books. Recently I was asked by the people over at Candy Cane Press to take a look at two of their new religious themed children's books. The books Rufus and Ryan go to Church and Rufus and Ryan say their prayers were two super cute books to bring up the topic of religion to children. Master D is now in CCD and loves to go to church, but sometimes the concepts of church and prayer are hard to cover with kids so young. Even harder is Miss J, who now also likes to go to church with us on Sundays. What I liked about these books and why they are super fun is it is a typical little boy with his stuffed monkey Rufus. In both books Ryan and Rufus navigate both how to say their prayers and what to do in church. Not only do the two learn what and how to behave and church it shares what to love about a mass. I also need to point out that it is fairly generic and as a Catholic there are only a few slight differences in terminology then what we use to describe certain things. I also liked how the prayer book gives great examples and shows the child that there is no wrong way to pray. The book portrays pray in a way I like for a child….as a simple conversation with God. For anyone who is trying to introduce either prayer or going to church with a wee one these books would be a great addition. Also, as we head into the holiday season we are firm believers in our house that other than Santa's presents and a few gifts from us we do books for the holidays These would be a nice gift for under the Christmas tree. Fun for the kids but with a deeper meaning to help celebrate the holiday season.

--I received this book for free from prbythebook in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.--

This is a fun little book that is bound to capture the attention of any little kid. The pages are filled with color, and the text per page is short and and something that young children will understand. Going to church can be a scary thing, especially if you are going to be sitting with the adults during the service. That is where this book comes in. This book shows how Ryan and his stuffed monkey Rufus enjoy going to church and shows how the service works at Ryans’ church. It starts out showing how you dress up to go to church, and how friendly people are at church. In this book there are people of all ages at the service, which shows young children that they’re not the only young kids there. There’s the reminders to be quiet along with showing other things that can go on during a service like singing and Bible story time. By showing little kids what could happen at church, exposing them to this before they actually go can help relieve the nervousness of going. For little kids going to church for the first time, or just going to the adult service for the first time this is a good book to show what can happen

Rufus and Ryan Go to Church
By: Kathleen Long Bostrom
Illustrated By: Rebecca Thornburgh

What a cute little story. My Maddi loved.. Cute little story about a little boy named Ryan is telling his stuffed monkey about going to church. What a great way to introduce your wee ones to going to church and what to expect. Very well written and the illustrations were wonderful. Great book for your child's library.

This cute little board book by Kathleen Long Bostrom introduces us to a little boy named Ryan and his stuffed friend, a little monkey named Rufus. We watch as Rufus and Ryan attend church together learning a bit about the "do's" and the "don'ts" of sitting in a worship service. They learn to be quiet and reverent. They learn to close their eyes during the prayer and to say "amen." Afterward they have a snack with the other children and head for home. The illustrations by Rebecca Thronburgh are colorful and adorable. The characters are also very real in their "wiggles and giggles" while sitting in the pew.

While this book is a board book and recommended for (about) ages 2 to 5, this book is perfect for any family who will be taking their children to church with them for the first time. In the past I attended churches that didn't have children in the sanctuary or chapel at all. Our church is not like that, we actually keep our kids with us through the entire chapel meeting. This could be a difficult transition for families who are accustomed to dismissing their children to "children's church" while the adults worship together.

Overall we liked this book. I did receive it free of charge in exchange for this review.

Rufus and Ryan Go to Church by Kathleen Long Bostrom is a sweet, lovely book that your young child or grandchild will love. Also fantastic for a giveaway to your Sunday School children.
Ryan is a very charming character who loves church and his monkey Rufus. He talks about his favorite parts of church and can't wait to go each week.
The board book makes it so easy for your young child to look at the pictures and read and reread as the young usually do. The pictures are so very colorful and full of happy faces. The church and the day are bright and beautiful.
This is just the book for your young child who loves to look at pictures and read. I highly recommend this book.
