These books are much loved by the children who have them. They are ‘feel good’ books for children; enjoyable and full of embedded wisdom underlying the interest and excitement of the stories. From the feedback I get, children want to read them nightly for weeks after they receive them.
Spiritual Heritage for Children Series
The Spiritual Heritage for Children Series bring to children different perspectives which have been lost in our modern, fast paced, always busy…busy lifestyle. Many children now live in large urban cities, totally unaware of life as it’s lived in its natural setting. Life is still lived surrounded by and immersed in the natural way of things in the rural areas, however these areas are diminishing. This has created an unnatural way of living, totally divorced from the web of life and the food chain experience of the natural world.
When we live closely with nature we develop our intuition and the awareness of our body language and its reactions to the energy field surrounding us. For a child living in close proximity to wild animals, reptiles and creepy crawlies, there is benefit in having all the senses alert to sense what is friend or foe – what is benign or dangerous. The senses warn of danger early and intuition tells how close to stay, or how far to go to safety.
Unfortunately this dis-connection of life from nature is creating an unbalanced way of thinking regarding life and death, particularly in relation to the food chain and the web of life that is natural. I will add here a review of Giorgie’s Christmas Dinner which highlighted this area for me.
“In this world full of judgement and guilt, where people no longer have family ties to farmers just one generation away, how do we justify the killing of animals in order to eat? It’s easy to forget where our food comes from when it is packaged so inconspicuously and no longer resembles the animal from whence it came. How lucky we are to have Joan E. Derrick and “Giorgie’s Christmas Dinner” to remind us and help us share with our children the beautiful gift that we receive in the form of our food. Joan and Giorgie remind us that all things are connected in the universe and that we need to remember to be grateful for life’s gifts and the role we play in bringing gifts to others.”
