Lent is really a season that is more for adults than a child in preschool. However, as I journey on in this holy season, I often find that my faith can feel refreshed when looking through the eyes of a child. Although young children may not be able to grasp fully the Passion of Our Lord, they can certainly grasp loving God, being loved by Him and the concept of heaven. Here are some books to share with your child during Lent or even in their Easter baskets!

I loved the adult version of this book! I look forward to sharing Colton’s story with my son!
2. Caleb’s Colt
My son picked this out of his school library. I love the angle it takes to tell the story of Palm Sunday! He couldn’t sit through the whole book, but when he walked away I finished reading it myself!
This is a new book about Saint Patrick! It’s about a boy that can’t sit still during prayers! I know one of those quite well!
St. Therese’, as a young girl, wants to do things her big sisters and older people do in order to show how much they love God. Therese’ wants to do lots of things, but, unfortunately, she is just “not old enough”. Most children have had this desire and because of that they will immediately connect with the story.

So cute and a great reference book!
This book was written by Matthew Kelly. Since I can’t put down his book Resisting Happiness, and can’t help but recommend a child’s book by him as well!
I have just recently been introduced to the Catechisis of the Good Shepherd and I am so interested in it! I am hoping to get my son enrolled in a class around our home next year. One of the pioneers of the Catechisis of the Good Shepherd in the Philadelphia area wrote this book! I bought it for our son and recommend it!
8. God’s Wisdom for Little Boys:Character Building Fun from the Proverbs
I love this new book – especially since it rhymes! There is something about books that rhyme that catch my son’s attention more and have him wanting to hear it again and again! There is also a volume for little girls: God’s Wisdom for Little Girls!
Although this is a Christmas book, it is still a great story!
My friend and fellow blogger, Brittany (Everyday Thoughts) recommends this book. She reviewed it and since then has given it as gift!
I have heard that everything by the author is great!
A lovely fable recommended by a friend!
16. How Big is God?
Another Christmas story, but highly recommended!
This one was recommended by a friend and I am already loving it!
19. Hail Mary
I love this board book! Not only i it great for very young tots, but it is an awesome way to teach older children the Hail Mary!
I keep meaning to order this for my son!
