Books for 1st Holy Communicants

First Holy Communion Books title
I love children’s books. I love giving them as gifts and I love collecting them for our home library. The thing I enjoy doing most with my children is to snuggle up on the couch and read to them. Admittedly, by the time they’re preparing for their First Holy Communion, they can read to themselves, but there is something to be said for reading to our children even when they don’t need us to. I can’t think of a time when any of our children have refused having a book read to them. And sometimes, they ask to read to a younger sibling which is quite possibly the most precious thing I’ve ever watched as a parent. First Communion preparation time can be so busy, especially because typically it falls in the spring when there are so many things going on. Sitting down to read to or with your child is a simple way to put the to do list aside and just be together, learn, and listen. It’s an opportunity for you as a parent to allow the Holy Spirit to inspire holy conversation. Profound truths can come from the mouths of babes.

So, here are the books we have at our home with links below so that you can easily make purchases or Pin for later. Some of the books, unfortunately, are unavailable, but who knows? You might be able to track them down at a Homeschool Conference or perhaps in your parish book bin. I have also listed some books that we do not yet own but that I’d love to eventually add to our collection, maybe next spring as we prepare our third child for his First Holy Communion.
