Goddess: 50 Goddesses, Spirits, Saints and Other Female Figures Who Have Shaped Belief
Publisher: Nosy Crow
We might use the word “goddess” in conversation here and there, or we might describe someone as a goddess as a compliment. But how many of us are aware of the wealth of variety of goddesses in world cultures, both present and past?
Goddesses, spirits, saints and other female figures in world religions, faiths and practices are a fascinating and empowering subject to learn about. In Dr Ramirez’s brilliant book, published to coincide with the British Museum’s upcoming Goddess exhibition, 9-12 year-olds will be fascinated to learn about 50 key figures from Anat, the Middle Eastern goddess of war and peace, Sedna, the Inuit Mother of the Sea and Pele, the Hawaiian goddess of volcanoes, fire and lava.
Separated into five sections: Ruling and Guiding, New Life, War and Death, Love and Wisdom and Animals and Nature, this stunningly illustrated hardback is a complete delight, and a well overdue study for children of the divine feminine across the world.
