11 Of Our Favorite New Catholic Children’s Books
Written for children five to eight years old – but a delight for all readers – A Storybook of Saints tells about the world’s greatest heroes: the saints.
Focusing not so much on historical details about the saints but on a few memorable events in the lives of each, it is not so much a collection of biographies as a storybook.
As such, the 40+ brief tales in it are not written to catechize children or inform them of the many details we know about the saints; rather, they are intended to awaken in children a deep admiration for those good souls – the kind of admiration children have for King Peter of Narnia or Frodo or Robin Hood; the kind of admiration that sends young children off in a flurry to find a costume; the kind that begins a relationship today that extends into tomorrow, the next day, the day after that, and ever on into heaven, with the saints in eternity.
The Catholic Treasury of Prayers & Verses introduces children to beautiful passages of Sacred Scripture and basic Catholic prayers—from the Our Father and Hail Mary, to the Morning Offering and Act of Contrition, and everything in between.
A lovely new book in the “My First Words” series for toddlers. “Hello Jesus, I do not see you, but you are here. Very softly, deep in my heart, I talk to you.

This delightful rhyming book introduces Catholic children to the Blessed Virgin Mary in a fun and simple way—through her clothes!

And in that mansion she has an incredibly beautiful wardrobe filled with a great variety of dresses, veils, slippers, sashes, robes, rings and crowns.
