wiccan and pagan moms. what is a good winter solstice/yule book for kids?

my friend wants a winter solstice book for her 3 1/2 year old daugther who is turning 4 this dec. she was going to buy http://www.amazon.com/Winter-Solstice-Ellen-Jackson/dp/0761302972/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1257733416&sr=8-4 but one review said it mocks winter solstice as saying Christmas is the real holiday. we want something more pagan/wiccan. thanks

  • She should consider purchasing Circle Round. It's focus is on EVERYTHING. It has a full chapter on every season and there are short stories for each Sabbat and Esbat. it gives ideas for crafts and lots of other things. i love this book.


    also, there is this http://www.pookapages.com/index.htm it has lots of fun stories for the little ones and you can even get the updates mailed to your inbox.

  • I have read in other online posts that the book "The Shortest Day" (sorry I can't remember the author) is good for Pagan children, but I haven't read it myself. I remember seeing a beautiful pop-up book last Solstice called "Winter's Tale" it wasn't about the Solstice but about the winter season, I thought that a book like that would be great for Pagan kids to help them appreciate the beauty of that portion of the wheel of the year.

  • I love Pookas pages, but have any of you tried to get to the Yule issue? I have been unable to get to it. If anyone has managed to get it would you mind sharing it. My kids are quite disappointed not to have it yet.
