After creating my list of Catholic saints that I wanted us to study in our homeschool this year, I took a look at the resources we had available.
In our home library, we have lots of books of Catholic saints, both for adults and children. I’ll share some of my favorites, as well as ones that are on my wish list.
Catholic Saints Books For Kids
Loyola Kids Book of Saints
I love this book from Amy Welborn, so much we also bought the Loyola Kids Book of Heros, too.
She writes the history of the saints in easy to understand stories, great for kids and an added resource for moms!
The Children’s Book of Saints
I was lucky to find this book at a local used bookstore, wrapped it up and put it under the tree.
Picture Book of Saints
This was one of our first resources that we used in our homeschool. I love the beautiful illustrations, but prefer the stories in the Amy Welborn books.
The Loyola Treasury of Saints
In this book, you’ll find over 100 saints, arranged by era (Renaissance, Modern Times, etc).
Can You Find Saints?
Ever played Where’s Waldo? Imagine that, only with pictures of Catholic saints! This looks like fun!
Lives of the Saints:An Illustrated History for Children
This book of over 60 most popular Catholic saints, is arranged by the saint’s feast date.
Once Upon A Time Saints
This book covers 16 saints, telling their stories as legends, without focusing on dates.
We also have books for specific saints like St Nicholas and Blessed Juan Diego.
Catholic Saints Books for Moms
Saints on Call: Everyday Devotions for Moms
Part of what I love about our rich history of Catholic saints is knowing that they often faced the same trials and issues that affect us today.
This book points to specific saints to lean on in times of suffering, anxiety or feeling like a failure.
In this resource, Pope Benedict explores and explains the contributions of 17 Catholic saints to our Church.

Ever think that the saints are nothing like you? This book reminds us that saints are women just like us – married, single, divorced and more.

My edition of this book is tattered and dog eared, with notes in the margins and highlighted passages throughout.
Lisa Hendey takes 52 saints and explores them as they relate to our vocation as mothers.
Ablaze: Stories of Daring Teen Saints
I know this book is geared for teens, but I like the writing style of Colleen Swaim. These stories will inspire Catholics of all ages to live their faith to the fullest.

This beautiful story explores six female saints who deeply influenced the author’s life.
