Catholic Saints Books for Children – All Year Round

We also use these resources all year long for learning about saints, feast days and Holy Days, as well as our Bible stories and Catholic prayers.

These books are a wonderful addition to your bookshelves to help you teach your children about our Catholic saints. You’ll find many of this month’s saints in these selections.

Add them to your wish list or ask for them for birthday or Christmas presents.

Picture Book of the Saints
This was one of the first Saints books I bought for our collection. You’ll find 106 saints here.

Lives of the Saints
There are sixty saints covered here, arranged in order of their feast days. Readers enjoy a short history of the saint as well as a prayer to help emulate the saint’s virtues.

An Alphabet of Catholic Saints
From St Anne to St Zita, I love the illustrations and rhyming text of this sweet picture book. I have Rachel read this to Maeve.


Kids Book of Saints
Kids’ Book of Heroes
These two books written by Amy Welborn are some of my very favorites. It’s a pleasure to read these stories to my children at dinner or bedtime.

Saints and Their Stories
I picked this beautiful book up at our local Catholic homeschooling conference. I’m always impressed with the beauty of books from Pauline Books and Media. The illustrations in this book are gorgeous.


Can You Find Saints?
Like Where’s Waldo, only we’re looking for Catholic saints!

Kids Book of Everyday Prayers
Teaching my children their prayers is a joy for me — it warms my heart to watch them learn and hear them pray on their own.

This book has a collection of traditional prayers as well as prayers for specific situations, like welcoming a new baby.

Catholic Book of Bible Stories
With our homeschool curriculum, we started out with the Golden Children’s Bible, but I wanted my children to hear stories in the same vernacular as they would hear at Mass.

This is the Bible storybook I’d recommend to all Catholic families.

Saints for Young Readers Volume 1 (January through June)
Saints for Young Readers Volume 2 (July through December)
When you pick up a book of Catholic saints, you’ll find them in all kinds of different order – by Feast Day dates, alphabetical, time period and more.

We take a story a day and read it over breakfast – super simple, and a great way to start our morning.

Saints for Kids (DVD)
I’ve purchased this DVD as a stocking stuffer for my children. While we’re on the road, we will often watch movies. I’m anxious to pop this one in and learn with the kids!


Inspiration for Catholic Moms

Many of the books I’ve collected for my children help me to learn about the saints as well. If I want something more adult oriented, these are my favorite resources for inspiration to emulate the saints and teach my children our Catholic faith.

A Book of Saints for Catholic Moms
My copy of this book is tattered and dog eared, with notes in the margins. Lisa Hendey explores a saint a week, exploring their history and how we can emulate them.

My Sisters the Saints
I own this one in Kindle form, and will read it while I’m on retreat in a few weeks.

Catholic Saints Prayer Book
Need some guidance to ask for the intercession of the saints? This book from Donna Marie Cooper O’Boyle can help – you’ll read a little about some of our most popular saints, along with suggested prayers.

Do you have favorite Catholic picture books that you pull out during September? I’d love to hear about your favorites!



  1. Thanks for this wonderful list! I see many titles we love, but others I’m excited to pick up–like The Queen and the Cross. 🙂

  2. I love this! We do a Charlotte Mason style homeschool here and I love incorporating good picture books into our studies!
