The Our Holy Faith series by Tan Books is a modernized reprint of an older series of religion books that has been an orthodox resource for families who wish to share the Catholic faith with their children. Each book has a corresponding review video that can also be utilized. The series is designed for grades K-8.
In Rescued: True Stories for Catholic Kids, Swegart shares stories of supernatural encounters with angels or heroic people who put themselves at great risk to save the lives of others. While these stories are aimed at kids in the 8-12 year-old range, adults can appreciate them as well. #bookreview #middlegrade
