Juno magazine reviews The Children’s Forest

This review of The Children’s Forest appears in the Winter 2019 issue of Juno Magazine.

This gorgeous book is a celebration of nature. Its aim is to “foster deep, meaningful, enriching and lasting relationships with the natural world.”

It does this through providing songs, poems, craft ideas, plant lore, games, stories and recipes, set out in the seasonal wheel of the year with sections for the traditional ancient celebrations of lmbolc, Beltane, Lughnasa and Samhain. There are lots and lots of beautiful illustrations from Allmut ffrench bringing the ideas to life.

I am looking forward to making walnut candles this winter, combining the bounty of nature with candlelight to brighten the dark evenings. Wonderful nature inspiration for us all.
