We are slowly building a collection of picture and chapter books about important figures in church history. It always amazes me how much children enjoy reading biographies! Here are a few recommendations from our library:
Saint Valentine – A beautifully illustrated story of a Roman Christian saint; on whom our traditions of Valentine’s Day are based. The illustrations are done in cut paper mosaic and are very lovely.
Saint Patrick – One of the many faith-based books from author and illustrator Tomie DePoala.
Trial and Triumph – A great compilation of histories of people throughout church history. Good for older kids. Be aware there is some mildly anti-Catholic sentiments; but overall an informative and useful book, with stories from the early church through modern times.
If you have a look on Amazon, you will find a larger selection of books, including these that look interesting:
