4 Great Books for Catholic Families
We asked Sam from Cultivating Catholics to pick a few books from our Market to review. Here were her thoughts on four Catholic books she selected!
"I absolutely love baptisms. I’d even go as far to say I love them more than birthdays. Sure being born is fun, but what about being born into God’s family?! This baptism board book is perfect for little hands, and the rhyming words keep little ears (and brains!) engaged."
"This book is absolutely adorable. I love that it introduces kids to a few “larger” vocabulary words that rhyme with “Ignatius” (even I learned some!) such as “ostentatious” and “flirtatious.” The book is written in rhymes so once again, keeps little brains engaged. Written by Paul Mitchell, it tells about Ignatius’ life in a really down-to-Earth, relatable way. 100% recommend!"
"I’ve been on the hunt for SO LONG trying to find a baby memory book, that’s also Catholic, and that’s not super overwhelming. We have 5 kids and while their baby books are okay, a lot of it isn’t filled out because it’s just too excessive. No, I don’t know the exact day their left, bottom molar came through, but let me tell you all about how much they weighed when they were born and their first Mass. (You know, the important stuff.) This book highlights all the important things, and leaves out all the not-so-important things, with plenty of pages for all their sacraments and Catholic-related milestones!"
"Okay, so this last ones not for kids. It’s for the moms of the kids. (Which is important too!) We need to keep our lives organized so our kids can have organized, faith-filled lives too! Not only does this planner include space for your day-to-day activities, Elizabeth Clare steps it up a notch by including feast days, fasting days, days of abstinence, ember days, rogation days and vigils! Elizabeth is a Catholic mom who is just amazing at creating planners. She has a ton of different options! I also love that each week has Sunday’s readings and novena trackers. But this might be my favorite part-all the prayers of the rosary and HOW to pray the rosary is also included in the back pages! Talk about a life saver! As a convert, my rosary skills are not very strong, so I truly appreciate this little “cheat sheet.”
Thanks for your review, Sam!
