Rufus & Ryan Go To Church Giveaway



My youngest daughter loves to sing, no matter where we are you will probably hear her singing, so it came at no surprise to us that she said that she wanted to join her sister in our local church choir.  She had already spent the summer listening to and memorizing her sister’s CDs of the the previous year’s productions,  and had developed a strong interest in attending the choir and church group activities that her sister had been participating in for the past few years.



About the Rufus and Ryan

Rufus and Ryan is a new series of books for preschoolers, featuring Ryan, an energetic little boy, and his stuffed monkey Rufus. Basic Christian and church concepts serve as the foundation of the series, with an additional focus on character traits and development. The text is presented in young Ryan’s voice as he teaches Rufus about the concepts he is learning himself.

About the Author

Kathleen Long Bostrom is a published children’s author in both the Christian and trade markets. She has a Master’s in Christian Education and a Doctorate of Ministry in Preaching, and she has worked in children’s ministry for many years. Kathy and her husband, Greg, have three grown children and live in Illinois.

About the Illustrator 

Rebecca Thornburgh began illustrating children’s books full-time in 1996 and today has almost 100 books to her name. Rebecca’s vibrant watercolors have been showcased in previous Ideals titles, including the new edition of The Story of Christmas. She lives in Philadelphia with her husband and two daughters.

Rufus and Ryan is a board book that is beautifully illustrated and well written,  and I would recommend this book to parents of  preschoolers that are attending church for the first time.  My daughter throughly enjoyed this book and loved the wonderfully colored pictures.

This book is ideal for children between the ages 2-5  years old.

Rufus and Ryan is available from Idealbooks for only $7.99  connect with Ideal Books on Facebook
