When four-year-old Ryan is stuck inside on a rainy day, his mom suggests that he and his stuffed monkey, Rufus, go on a treasure hunt inside the house. As Ryan goes from room to room, he looks for things that make him happy and says, 'Thank you, God!'
Author Kathleen Bostrom brings a delightfully light touch to the text as she provides an introduction to the concept of gratitude. And children everywhere will relate to the idea of explaining their surroundings to their favorite companions as they go about their daily activities. Ages 2-5. About Rufus and Ryan: Rufus and Ryan is a series of books for preschoolers, featuring Ryan, an energetic little boy, and his stuffed monkey, Rufus.
