Does your child’s Catholic school have a Catholic library? You’d be surprised at what books you can find on the shelves of Catholic schools across the country. Talk to your school librarian to make sure that your school’s books are carefully curated and selected.
More and more I’m finding children’s literature that is full of ideas that go against the Catholic faith. My own eyes were opened to this when my third grader came home with a book from the popular “Who Was” series that discussed the sexual orientation of a historical figure. We cannot blindly allow our children to read just anything these days. Let’s commit to choosing reading materials full of value, virtue, and faith that will lead our children to discover who God is and what Jesus has done for them!
Today, in no particular order, Catholic-Link presents a few of our favorite books for Catholic children that we feel every Catholic school library should make available to students.

Reading daily to your child will reap benefits that will last a lifetime for both you and your son or daughter. Not only do children who are read to frequently outscore their peers on academic tests, but their emotional, spiritual, and social well being is impacted as well. Set aside the time to bond with your child over books. Open their eyes to the fascinating stories available to us. But, don’t stop there! When you read books with a faith-filled message, your child will also learn about the importance of our Catholic faith
This list is just a starting place! What book would you add to the list?
