Favorite Books for Catholic Kids- Growing List!

Hi! This list had undergone a major update! Please click here or on the image above to be redirected to the most recent list, with hundreds and hundreds of great books for Catholic kids!


  1. Thank you so much Katie!!! Great Christmas gift ideas!
    My question: Do you have a recommendation for a good Bible for teen for Confirmation gift? Thank you again!

    1. Hi Trisha! I'd definitely recommend a good gift Bible in the NABRE or RSVCE translations! For a girl, the Blessed is She Journaling Bible would be my top pick. For either boy or girl, the Ave Maria Journaling Bible or the Great Adventure Bible look awesome too!

  2. This post filled me with glee. : D Thank you for all the suggestions!

    Additional recommendations for the scripture genre:
    Old Testament Rhymes - Benson
    Catholic Nursery Rhymes - St. Augustine Academy Press
    Noah's Ark - Peter Spier (amazon)

    Additional recommendations for saint collection genre:
    Heroes of God's Church - Mortimer (St. Augustine Academy Press)
    So Many Ways to Be Holy - Holy Heroes

    Donkey's Dream - Bergner & There Was No Snow on Christmas Eve - Munoz Ryan for Advent/Christmas.

    The Virgin Mary Around the World (a board book by shining light dolls I think?) my kids liked too even though we don't collect peg dolls.

    Also recommend the book about St. John Vianney by Mullenheim. I see other books by her on your list that I didn't know existed. Thanks!

    Oh! One last board book recommendation: The Saving Name of God the Son by Bethlehem Books and God the Father's Loving Plan board book by them too.

    1. The Donkey's Dream by Berger, Barbara Helen (no n in the last name)

      Thank you for the wonderful suggestions.

  3. Another story category suggestion: A Gift of Myself - Douglas (Scepter Publishers)
    Also, for CHristimas: The Third Gift - Park

  4. Hi Katie, I love your list and come back to it often. Do you have a suggestion for a book for a Confirmandi 8th grader about how faith and science are not incompatible? Thanks so much!

    1. I'm sorry I missed this comment! Just in case someone had the same question, Brilliant by David and Jaclyn Warren might be helpful. I also think that the websites and are great and navigable for an 8th grader!

  5. Lilly's Purple Plastic Purse by Kevin Henkes has elements of Reconciliation in a secular book. An Orange for Frankie Patricia Polacco great for Catholic social teaching,
