The Blurb:

The Magickal Family is a real-life guide for those who want to practice magick and simplicity but need a little nudge to break out of the work-a-day world. Filled with tips, ideas, and projects to bring you and your family closer to nature and to celebrate the Goddess, this book shows how to be true to your magickal self while raising little witchlings and creating a life you’re proud of.

Discover a load of validation, encouragement, and techniques for thriving in the modern world with gardening, kitchen witchery, tinctures and herbal remedies, crafts, recipes, reusing and recycling, and working with the wheel of the year.

This is a delight of a book. Monica Crosson lyrically describes her families Pagan practices throughout the year. It contains a wealth of crafts and activities to help children celebrate paganism with their families. It would be a great book for non Pagans too, especially home educating ones as the author home educates her children. I found myself bookmarking many of the crafts to do with my children’s reading group. The festivals are described, with correspondences with plenty of rituals and activities to acknowledge them. Although the book is written from a US perspective I still (being from the UK) found plenty of common ground. I have to say them I am envious of how she describes her home and feel the need to move to America. When she told the story of her little girl talking to Grandma after she passed on I got goosebumps as it reminded me of my little boy, who also saw his nana after she’d passed.

I would definitely keep this book on my shelf for reference and I will be definitely be encouraging my children to participate in some of the activities described (and me!).

5/5. Thank you to NetGalley and Llewellyn Worldwide, Ltd for this eArc for an honest review.

About thewytchinghourblog

I'm a horror loving librarian with the need to share reviews of everything horror, gore and spooky related. I'm an avid reader of books, mainly horror, definitely supernatural. I'm a pagan and like to define myself as an eclectic witch. Halloween/Samhain is my favourite time of year from everything pumpkin spiced, the scent of decay and the veil between worlds thinning. So, here we are to share all things blood splattered, things that go bump in the night and crawl out of the darkness.
