    This was was a really fun little book and I actually learned about some goddesses I hadn t heard of before The book is separated into different sections based on each goddess domain principle area of help, and each goddess gets a few paragraphs telling some basic information about her, an illustration, a little totem or symbol that has something to do with her power, and a suggestion of when you can call on that goddess for help I thought this was really cool and it reminded me a lot of The This was was a really fun little book and I actually learned about some goddesses I hadn t heard of before The book is separated into different sections based on each goddess domain principle area of help, and each goddess gets a few paragraphs telling some basic information about her, an illustration, a little totem or symbol that has something to do with her power, and a suggestion of when you can call on that goddess for help I thought this was really cool and it reminded me a lot of The Little Book of Feminist Saints, which made every woman the matron saint of something and gave them all a particular feast day The only real complaint I have here is that, while there were a wide variety of goddesses from many different religions, I still felt like Greek and Roman goddesses were a bit over represented and my favorite, Persephone, wasn t included lol.Here s an example of one of the goddesses featured

    Continuing to readbooks on badass women in history, I knew I had to pick up this book on Goddesses Covering goddesses from all over the world, Ann tells us where they re from, their origin story, and what they stand for Plus, we get some beautiful artwork depicting each goddess at the end of their story.One of the things that I love about this book is that it covers goddesses from all over the world rather than just Roman and Greek goddesses Don t get me wrong I love Roman and Greek go Continuing to readbooks on badass women in history, I knew I had to pick up this book on Goddesses Covering goddesses from all over the world, Ann tells us where they re from, their origin story, and what they stand for Plus, we get some beautiful artwork depicting each goddess at the end of their story.One of the things that I love about this book is that it covers goddesses from all over the world rather than just Roman and Greek goddesses Don t get me wrong I love Roman and Greek goddesses as well, but we often get a sample of Greek and Roman mythology rather than expanding and covering other cultures Based on the cover and the synopsis, I knew we were going to finally get a good variety when I picked up this book.I also love that this the perfect book to introduce kids to mythology It s kid friendly, has beautiful artwork, and will inspire kids to lookinto mythology during and after reading Of all the chapters, there is one chapter that is not kid friendly, so I recommend screening the book beforehand since there isn t a trigger warning at the beginning of that particular chapter.The only thing that I didn t like is that it s encouraged to call on each goddess for a particular reason fertility, inspiration, etc at the end of each chapter It s not something that I would recommend because you shouldn t call on a deity you don t worship for help Otherwise, it s a great book and I highly recommend picking it up and adding it to your book collection

    The title pretty much describes the book I enjoyed the wide range of cultures and aspects of the divine feminine that Shen draws on I also appreciated that Shen was informative, engaging, and factual in her descriptions of the goddesses, especially that she did not try to water down the stories For example, she includes Xochiquetzal s story leading to the first menstruation, and refrains from erroneously trying to make Sekhmet a motherly figure which Sekhmet decidedly is not The illustrati The title pretty much describes the book I enjoyed the wide range of cultures and aspects of the divine feminine that Shen draws on I also appreciated that Shen was informative, engaging, and factual in her descriptions of the goddesses, especially that she did not try to water down the stories For example, she includes Xochiquetzal s story leading to the first menstruation, and refrains from erroneously trying to make Sekhmet a motherly figure which Sekhmet decidedly is not The illustrations were lovely and captured the spirit of the goddess and the culture she is from.I got this book from the library but might now buy my own copy, especially since the library, as libraries do, wants their copy back

    A really lovely collection of goddesses from different cultures around the world I loved the illustrations and brief descriptions for each I also appreciated that there was a bibliography, in case I wanted to readabout some of them All in all, I enjoyed this book enough that I m probably going to buy a copy because pretty pictures plus goddesses is totally my weakness I also appreciated that many of them included suggestions for what situations to invoke a certain goddess in, and symbo A really lovely collection of goddesses from different cultures around the world I loved the illustrations and brief descriptions for each I also appreciated that there was a bibliography, in case I wanted to readabout some of them All in all, I enjoyed this book enough that I m probably going to buy a copy because pretty pictures plus goddesses is totally my weakness I also appreciated that many of them included suggestions for what situations to invoke a certain goddess in, and symbols plants sacred to them that you could use when doing so
