Pauline Kids / Pauline TEEN is the premier name in Catholic children’s publishing in the United States today. Our books for toddlers through teen readers affirm values and entertain, teach and form, while introducing children to the rich tradition, language, and perspectives that flow from our Catholic faith. Pauline Books and Media brings together authors and illustrators who care about kids and want to be part of helping them discover and build a future full of hope. Under our Pauline Kids and Pauline TEEN imprints, we publish lives of the saints, fiction, prayer books, bible stories, biographies, and resources in formats that include board books, picture books, chapter books, short stories, comic books, coloring and activity books, graphic novels, and more. Our Little App of Saints and More Little App of Saints are Pauline Kids first smartphone apps for kids.


Are you looking for a publisher?


Fiction, non-fiction, or resource, have you written a book that can help form faith in the hearts of children or teens? Are you looking for a publisher who shares your values and connects with your mission? Have you submitted your manuscript to numerous publishing companies and never received the courtesy of a reply? Have you been told that your book is too “religious,” or that you’d have to take out all that “Christian stuff” in order to be published? If you've answered yes to any of these questions, Pauline Kids or Pauline TEEN could be your answer.

Pauline Books & Media, is a non-profit Catholic Christian publishing house. We belong to the Daughters of St. Paul, an order of religious women founded in 1915 to serve the Church and evangelize the world through the media. Our mission includes discovering, mentoring, and marketing first-time or unknown authors. We are proud to be among the very few publishers who actually read—and fully consider—unsolicited manuscripts.

Pauline Books & Media is not a vehicle for self-publishing, but a full-service and professional publishing house. There are no costs for authors who publish with us. In addition, our authors benefit from the expertise in writing, editing, design, and marketing we have developed over decades of experience. We offer you everything that is needed to turn your manuscript into a quality book capable of reaching today’s children and teens. Because we have a well-established reputation for publishing great Catholic books for children and teens, we receive thousands of submissions and author inquiries each year. While we choose to accept only a small percentage of the authors who submit manuscripts to us, we promise to treat your and your work with respect, and do our best to respond to you within three months. And in case you’re wondering…you do not have to be Catholic to write a Catholic book. Several of our authors have come from other Christian faith traditions.

Join the Pauline Kids / Pauline TEEN family today and let us help make your dream a reality!
