My mom is a library assistant at an elementary school down in Florida (actually, the same elementary school my siblings and I all attended!), and she’s always sending me recommendations for new books and new series. I absolutely adore YA literature, among other genres, and I always find her recommendations to be well worth reading. I know I’ll be hitting her up when Matt and I decide to have children, as she’ll have a bunch of titles for us to check out!
Inspired by this, I started searching for Pagan books at places like Barnes and Noble, Books-A-Million, and other admittedly non-Pagan establishments. What I found was… a whole lotta nothin’. That really wasn’t surprising considering the lack of support for Pagan authors (at least children’s authors) in mainstream culture, but I was still disappointed to see several Christian titles and even a few Jewish titles while finding not a single kid-friendly Pagan book. Several for adults, none for kids.
Thank heavens for the Internet, though! Here are some books that I managed to find for Pagan children, ones that I’ve heard of before and that I’m going to be sure to add to my Future Babies Wish List. They’re listed according to appropriateness to age, and all can be found on Amazon.com. (I urge you to Google these titles, though, and purchase either directly from the author or through an independent bookstore if possible!)
