Reformation Day Books For The Family

Share with a friend!

In our home, October 31st is Reformation Day! It’s a great time to study the men and women who didn’t cower to man but gave glory to God in the 16th century. Whether you do a month of study, or just take the week leading up to the 31st, Reformation Day is church history. All ages of the body of Christ should learn about the Reformers!

From toddlers to adults, this list of Reformation Day books is for you! This wonderful book list is for all age ranges. Many of these books are great for either read-aloud or independent reading. Some books may also overlap age ranges depending on your child’s level of reading but I’ve broken them down by age range to make your search easier! 

I’m sure this list may grow over time!
