Clean Reads

Do you struggle to find interesting books for kids that don't contradict your beliefs? Blue Ribbon Book Fairs still include titles from mainstream publishing houses in categories such as:

  • Board Books
  • Picture Books
  • Level Readers
  • Easy Chapter
  • Chapter Books
  • Non-Fiction (STEM)

Plus favorite characters, sports, animals, biographies, history, graphic novels and much, much more.

The difference? All titles are filtered for content that contradict your school's teaching. Instread, Blue Ribbon Book Fairs add publishers like Tyndale, Zondervan, Baker, Thomas Nelson... Just to name a few. 

You can also check out our category Catholic Teen Novels for a great selection of junior high and young adult fiction. Have suggestions for others? Just let us know and we'll make every effort to include them!

Part of our mission is to bring new authors and titles to your schools. The list below includes authors who may have appropriate titles for your students. This list is not comprehensive and Blue Ribbon makes no endorsement of any of these author's titles. As always, we urge parents and teachers to review their student's reading lists.
