October 31st is Reformation Day, and in our home and homeschool, we take the week leading up to Reformation Day (and sometimes the whole month of October) to remember the men and women of the 16th-century who brought light out of darkness and, in some cases, gave their lives for the sake of Scripture and the glory of God.
Here is a list of books I recommend for learning about the Reformers with children and young people. You don’t need to go out and buy all of these, but they’re all good titles. I have divided these by general age range to help you find books to fit your family.
