For anyone with children it's
perfect - full of ideas for celebrating together with children, including games, recipes,
music, ideas for including pets and much more.
|The author has written a master compilation of
ancient Pagan material, filled it out and updated the lore, and filled it all with the
warmth and loving closeness that is so important in the rearing of a family during this
difficult era...In and among the levity and lightness of family celebrations... she has
included some profound metaphysical concepts and some very good basics on magic. As with
many books ostensibly intended for use with children, there is much here that is of
considerable value for adults as well.

...I like the
friendly, supportive tone that reminds me I'm not alone in this pagan parenting biz, and
the emphasis that children have a great deal to contribute that doesn't lapse into pushing
our choices on them.
|....I think without a doubt, that this is the
finest book on the subject so far in print. I wish I'd had it in in my bookcase
twenty-five years ago, but I guess I'll just have to settle for being pleased that it will
benefit my grandson....This wonderful little volume will help you establish truly
individual family traditions that will take on deeper and deeper meaning as the years go

Wonderfully done! I have seen
no other book that compares with the amount of information pertaining to families as this
book does. WiccaCraft for Families is a must for every family seeking to live the
Wiccan life together as children of the Lord and Lady. I highly recommend it.
This is a warm and lovely
book! Margie McArthur provides a wonderful resource tool for Pagan parents.....WiccaCraft
for Families is an important addition to the Pagan family library.
Ms. McArthur has raised her
four children with her Pagan belief system and put her experiences to print....She does an
excellent job of aiming her information towards children. She supplies us adults with many
examples and ideas which will appeal to our little ones....
Families" is an excellent addition to any pagan parent's library. Though it covers a
lot of ground found in other family tradition books, it also has some wonderful additions.
At the end of each chapter describing festival rituals, Ms. McArthur includes tunes and
lyrics for appropriate music....Her "Rites of Passage" is also one of the most
complete around with chapters on women's mysteries, men's mysteries, youth, handfasting,
age, and death. Though the rituals are wiccan in style, pagans of any tradition will find
lots of ideas in here for developing family traditions.
