Children's Forest (Dawn Casey, Anna Richardson, Helen dAscoli)
The Children's Forest: Stories and songs, wild food, crafts and celebrations All Year Round
A rich and abundant treasury in celebration of the outdoors, The Children's Forest encourages children’s natural fascination with the forest and its inhabitants. The authors have produced an enchanting book in which imagination, story, and play bring the world of the forest to vibrant life. Filled with games, facts, celebrations, craft activities, recipes, foraging, stories, and Forest School skills, this book is much more than a manual: it is an invitation.
The book is organized into the eight Celtic seasons of Imbolc, Spring, Beltane, Summer, Lughnasa, Autumn, Samhain, and Winter. Within each chapter are the following sections: The Life of the Forest; Plant Lore; Imaginary Journey; Tree Lore; Activities, crafts and games; Animals; Celebration. The appendices cover woodland skills, safety, the Ogham alphabet, story sources, and more resources.
Ideal for ages 5 to 12, The Children's Forest will also be enjoyed by adults, families, and younger children.
