OK, folks, it's about time for my GRANDSON to be born (if I could bottle up the excitement I'm feeling, I'd be rich!). Anyway, I've been planning on this event for years now. I've been buying books and toys and games for the past decade, I think -- but I haven't gotten him a kid's Bible or many books on the Saints and prayer, etc. 

The main thing I'm looking for is the BEST Catholic children's Bible -- preferably one with really good pictures, the more traditional and least cheesy, the better. I want him to be as Bible-literate as any good Protesant, and I want him to have warm memories of the Bible itself, of me reading it to him and him looking at the pictures, etc. Any recommendations?

Any other good Catholic kid books you all know of? Again, I'm partial to books that have a classic feel to them aesthetically. Also much preferred are hardcover books...

Thanks for any ideas!

Sanctus Simplicitus is an excellent site.  They have a lot of information, including book reprints.  It's not just for homeschoolers.

Also, we like Neumann Press

We liked the New Catholic Picture Bible
I bought a copy of The Catholic Bible in Pictures a couple of years ago: and I think it's fantastic.  :) Not at all cheesy, and I don't think that it could be more traditional. I don't have kids, but if I did, I'd definitely get them this Bible.
We have the Golden Children's Bible, but its fairly big and probably not the best choice to start out with for a small child. Other than that, I recommend the Mass Explained to Children,  the Picture Book of Saints, and ( if you can find it) a storybook called When Jesus Came to My House.

Thanks!  Now I have a list :)
