Introduction to Druidry for children

Postby Annaoj » 16 Oct 2014, 08:38

Hi
A friend has asked me for info about Druidry for her son. He a very bright age 12. I've been talking to him, but wanted to give him something to read. Any suggestions?

He could cope with adult books, but probably not adult themes yet. And I'd like the book to be engaging, which adult ones may not be for a 12yo.

I've given my friend a copy of Circle Round already, but it's something more specifically Druid related that I want.

Of course, doesn't have to be a book. Websites are good too.

Thank you

How about this book by PCG and Vivienne Crowley

Most dear is fire to the sons of men,
most sweet the sight of the sun;
good is health if one can but keep it,
and to live a life without shame. (Havamal 68)

Sometimes reading myths is a good place to start. I have a copy of this, which is great for adults too.

The Druid Tradition comes to mind, if I'm remembering it right...
The Druidry Handbook is also great, but its a bit longer. Depends on how much he likes to read!

I have a 6 year old who is intensely curious, he loves looking at my Druid Tarot deck but I'm not sure what to teach him at his level about this.

If asked he currently says his Christian but he also says "All the Jesuses from the different countries live in a cloud above the earth with their other dad Father Christmas" he also this last Palm Sunday left school the Friday before with palm crosses (he goes to a CofE school) and immediately turned the crosses into swords so I would say his understanding of Christianity isn't too deep.

My six year old daughter learns the herbs from me at first.
I explain Beltaine or Samhain and the others... but I think that's enough for her at the moment.
