Reviews about Spring Equinox, The (7):

Lovely! As a non-religious person, it is important for me and my family to find alternative ways to recognize spring and all the many ways to celebrate it.

These Equiox and the Solstice books are cute and fun to read, at the end of the book are crafts and ideas to do with your children for the Equinox. I also like all the history it has in it, I learned quite a bit myself!! :)
Tansino
great way to explain pagan rites to Children. We will use this in our children's circle. Also briefly mentions Christianity in relation to pagan symbols

It would be nice to have the whole collection, which I plan to do for my granddaughters. Either to read to them, or have them read on their own, as it's easy to understand. I enjoyed reading it myself.

Another reviewer said this book has crafts or ideas at the end. NOPE!!! It is a set of 1 page stories about how different cultures in the past waited for the suns return. I liked the short tale at the end and the page that explains the science of what makes the seasons change.
Overall, I found this book too boring to hold the attention of my kids. I expected some fun ideas for the season and the book didn't include any.

"Romans gave presents to their friends and relatives, like we do now at Christmas." The pictures were also nice and bright.
This book is completely non-denominational, which is a nice change but not what I expected from the title and description. Sadly, I was kind of hoping that this book would be a good introduction to Yule for kids. It is not!
The part about sacrificing llamas made my kids angry. I don't really like that they now have to bring that one point up every time we mention Yule.
While this book isn't a total waste, it is not at all what I had hoped for. I look forward to seeing good books that will actually explain the old holidays to kids. This book just doesn't do it.

Fun short stories about various traditions associated with the vernal equinox. A wonderful introduction into the traditions and rituals of various cultures. Hopefully it will serve as a springboard to a more involved examinations of these intricate and fascinating cultural practices.

My son has family members that celebrate both Christian and Pagan holidays. I found this book and others are a great way to put all of our traditions in a historical and equal light. We've been reading it since he was four but I recommend it for 1st graders and older doing a few pages a night.
My 3 yr old enjoys learning about the different rituals and traditions and talking about them with us. I like that this book doesn't focus too intently on one particular religious practice -- we prefer to give our child exposure to different spiritual ideas without pushing one in particular.
