When I give talks to catechists and parents, I often include a listing of resources (in part because I can’t help it).

This is by no means an exhaustive list. In fact, it’s only the tip of the iceberg, and it’s likely to be outdated about two minutes after I post it.

Here’s a PDF of this list, which you’re free to use with proper attribution.
