Celebrating Saint Pope John Paul II with Kids and Families

As you all know, Pope John Paul II will be canonized this Sunday!  I meant to publish this post in time for you to place orders before the canonization, but better late than never!  You might want to use Sunday's celebration as a springboard for further learning about our wonderful new modern saint, and here are some resources to help.

Since there are so many adult books by and about JPII, I confined myself in this post to only titles for children and families.  However, I bet there is something we can all learn from these items- there are so many  great resources available!
For young children, Lolek - The Boy Who Became Pope John Paul II is $16.02.

 The Story of Saint Pope John Paul II: A Boy Who Became Pope comes in paperback for $15.95 or Kindle for $8.99. 


Pope John Paul II: Young Man of the Church, from the Childhood of World Figures series, is $8.99 for paperback or $8.54 for Kindle.

John Paul II: The Journey of a Saint is a hardcover graphic novel currently $15.29.
Holy Heroes' Glory Stories Vol. 11: Pope Saint John Paul II CD is on sale for $12.95.  This is the only story on this CD, so it is double the length of the shorter Glory Stories.

Glory Stories CD vol 11
The 2007 film Pope John Paul II with Cary Elwes is supposed to be fantastic.  It's on sale for $13.94.

I have also heard great things about Karol: A Man Who Became Pope, which is marked down to just $6.66 right now on Amazon.


Just for fun, Etsy has a variety of adorable John Paul II dolls and figures, perfect for sparking the imagination of the little ones.  I just searched for "John Paul II" under "handmade" on Etsy.  Prices for these range from about $6-$32.
Finally, don't forget that I have JPII-themed giveaway going on right now!  Go here to enter to win a JPII chaplet of your choice from Etsy shop Our Catholic Corner!
