We help you use Catholic living books for a relaxed
religious education that applies to real life!
Race For Heaven products employ Charlotte Mason's method of education by encouraging family read-aloud of Catholic living books especially saint biographies to teach the truths of the Catholic faith and to encourage the imitation of the holy habits of the saints. Narration, daily read-loud of living books, integration of holy habits, and scripture memorization are all integral components of the Race For Heaven curriculum. Regular family spiritual read-aloud is strongly emphasized in all of our materials. Living books that impart knowledge of the doctrine and the lived experience of the Catholic faith are the backbone of the Race for Heaven curriculum.

Our newest series of books is a Catholic children's poetry series that a book for each season, which includes a nature poem for each day of the liturgical and natural year. Extensive lists of quality children's picture books are included along with poems of saints, Christmas, Lenten, and Easter poems, and poems for many of the secular holidays. The intention of this series is not only to introduce children to quality poetry but to connect them to the God's natural world and hence to draw them into a closer relationship with the Creator Himself. These books—available in paperback and sturdy hardcover—are geared for elementary-aged children but also assist older children and adults to re-energize their love of God and His creation.
