Years ago, we had a dream to bring fun, whimsy, and pleasure to Catholic children’s literature, while retaining solid catechesis and authentic beauty in each book.
As parents, we wanted our children to fall in love with Jesus, the saints, and the Church through the joy of reading about them. With graduate degrees in theology, we also knew we wanted to avoid watering anything down. Our children have such a great capacity for knowing God and His truths (God Himself placed that desire and capacity in their hearts and minds)!
These are the books we wished we had for our kids. We are so blessed they now exist and we can share them with you, too!

Like Katie, Meg holds a graduate degree in theology from the Augustine Institute in Denver.
