Catholic Charlotte Mason
I am incredibly impressed by the work done over at Mater Amabilis to curate some great Catholic resources for our children in the Charlotte Mason style!
Thanks for the review!

Now on Patreon
And if you want to further support the podcast, you can now do so on Patreon. This is a passion project of mine. So your contribution can help keep the podcast going. And if you join the Catholic Kidlit Writers Club through Patreon, you can find extra interviews, information, and support about the book-creation side of things, the writing and publishing.
I’m piloting moving the Catholic Kidlit Writers Club onto Patreon as a more robust way to share that kidlit creation side with members and to make it more accessible to people by offering it as a monthly amount instead of an annual sum. So we’ll see how all that goes.
But thank you so much in joining me here on this free podcast. And now for the show!
What’s your favorite curriculum or booklist? Any Catholic kidlit must-haves you can suggest to other readers?

I am always looking for more good books for kids and teens. About two years ago, I began helping our parish’s (volunteer) librarian with organizing the library. Now I am actively growing the offerings for all ages. (We don’t have a budget, but we do have some people who donate books.) One Catholic publisher that is small but has fiction for upper elementary age is Behold Publications. https://beholdpublications.com/home/ (My daughter read them all. Her favorite was the Iron Spy.)
Oh that’s wonderful! I love it when parishes create libraries for their parishioners. I didn’t mention it in the episode, so I’m glad you pointed this out…I hope parents looking for good Catholic kidlit check to see if their parish offers this!
