Okay wasn't sure where to post this could go in books, education or here but thought it fit here best since it was spirituality based.

I am looking for pagan themed books to share with my little ones as well as books on the pagan family.

I have:

The Family Wicca Book by Ashleen O'Gaea
The Pagan Family by Ceisiwr Serith
Pagan Parenting by Kristin Madden
Celebrating the Great Mother - by Cait Johnson, Maura D. Shaw

And for the wee ones:

Three Little Witches - First Start Easy Reader - Sharon Gordon
(just presents witches in a fun basic story)
Irish Myth and Magic by Anna Collins & John Skelton
(for older children - legends)
My Working Mother - can't find right now to get author
(fun story about a witch mom from the kid's perspective)
All I see Is Part Of Me by Chara M Curtis
(My favorite! http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/AS...529699-3410421)

Of course we have ones on seasons, nature, ecology & native american legends as well. What do you have?

Well, it's not a childrens book per se but I love Circle Round by Starhawk et al. I only say it's not a childrens book, because it's really for parents to use to share Goddess worship with their kids. But it's not a kids picture book.

Yes, Circle Round. Love that book! I know of a few more but I can't find my list now, I think I packed a few days ago. Check out circle round though, it's really cool.

I love Circle Round, and also the music CD Circle Round and Sing that goes with it. Also have Pagan Parenting, and Seven Times the Sun (which is actually written by Christians, but is a Waldorfy book about daily rituals for families)

For the kids:
Grandad's Prayers of the Earth by Douglas Wood
The Reason for a Flower by Ruth Heller (more of a science book, but a nice way to look at the circle of life)
Ishtar and Tammus by Christopher Moore
Grandfather Twilight by Barbara Berger
Pelle's New Suit by Esla Beskow (not really pagan, but it shows exactly what it takes from natural resources and the workforce to make a suit of clothes for a little boy)
The Story of th Root Children by Sibylle von Offers
Child of Faeirie by Jane Yolen
On the Morn of Mayfest by Eric Silverman

we don't have them, but I love the Gilgamesh trilogy (can't think of the author) and amazon has a Pagan Activity book that I want to get.
