Magic Child is a bedtime spell for spiritual families. This enchanting book brings the tools of grounding, breathwork, herbalism, casting a circle of protection, and talking to spirits into a bedtime routine to help caretakers and children manifest a calm sleep environment. Magic Child seeks to honor these traditions, recognizing them as an everyday ritual and a way to create magic.
 
Glowing candle, clear sweet chime.
Draw your circle with a rhyme.
 
Evening wind and cricket thrum.
Buzzing mind slows to a hum.
 
What can you touch, hear, and smell?
Magic child, cast a spell.

 
Using a rhythmic meter and the repeated refrain of “magic child, cast a spell,” the text walks readers through a gentle meditation that introduces relaxation and self-care techniques to readers aged from infant to three. As Magic Child is read at bedtime, children engage in a metacognitive journey to think about how people care for themselves by preparing for rest. Illustrated entirely in hand-carved and printed linocuts in a warm two-color palette, Magic Child will quickly become a beloved bedtime ritual.
