The 2021 Catholic Christmas Gift Guide for Kids
CCC of America’s Saints and Heroes video series are classics for Catholic children, teaching the next generation all about the lives of Saints.
A subscription to Formed just might be the best media giveaway you can give. Children can access Faith-based movies, TV shows, audiobooks, CDs, and eBooks.
This year’s must-have new version for kids is Saints of the world, which features lesser-known saints with amazing stories.
Every family needs a Bible, and you won’t find a better one for children than the Great Adventure Kids Catholic Bible Chronicles. It is designed to show how everything in the scriptures is part of the greater story of salvation, and the role that each of us can play in that story.
Saint Joseph: watch over my family is an adorable little picture book on the history of Saint-Joseph. It’s the perfect gift in this year of Saint Joseph!
My first interactive mass book is a sturdy hardback book that invites children to understand the beauty of Mass through hands-on activities like shutters, wheels, and tracing. This is great for busy preschoolers or older kids who have something to keep their hands busy!
The Quiet Book of Catholic Mass is another delicious book for kids who need to move.
For the older ones, The sacred that surrounds usexplains clearly the symbolism and history behind the sacred objects that we see in every Catholic church.
Reluctant readers will love these Catholic comics about a brave and sympathetic little boy who was friends with Saint Francis of Assisi. There are 6 volumes in the totally endearing (and truly inspiring) Loupio series.
Good books help build a person’s character, and a novel about a Catholic family is a gift that will last a lifetime. We recommend the wonderful Mitchells series by Hilda Van Stockum: The Mitchell’s: five for victory, Canadian summer, and Friendly sprockets. And every Catholic child should read the exciting classic Ravenhurst Outlaw. You can find lots of other great ideas at Good Books for Catholic Kids and Bethlehem Books.
Discover the 7 sacraments with this Lego catechism (and a caveat: don’t buy a similar book called The Brick Bible, which is not suitable for children at all).
Show children how they can be saints with the delicious new picture book I’m a saint in the making, and introduce the concept of holy intercession with My little book of patrons.
