About the Rufus and Ryan series
Rufus and Ryan is a new series of books for preschoolers, featuring Ryan, an energetic little boy, and his stuff 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. Each story is about 150 words, using age-appropriate vocabulary and themes.
