It sounds like a very good sign if your daughter requests a minimization of EM pollution during the Full Moon, as younger mages often have better direct perception of the other harmonics of existence than do many older ones. A witch's stone collection must be important, as I notice that it is often the first thing a jealous muggle will target.
For younger mages, I like passive books that have lots of reference material and beautiful, instructive pictures, like _Good Magic_ by Marina Medici. I believe that for talented Craft practitioners, the best way for them to learn is to provide them with answers to the questions that they, themselves, ask; and to stimulate curiosity at an aesthetic level. Sometimes, beliefs and programming are more about tribal identity than shamanic sensitivity. I believe that I may have learned just as much about Magick from fictional stories as from non-fiction books.
Aleister Crowley wrote a letter to Henry Ford, long ago, seeking his help in instituting the concept of guidance and career counseling for school kids, believing that to tap into a kid's own natural talent was the best way to sense how to provide good direction and discipline. I think that a wand can often symbolize a witch's personal contribution to the Great Work, but it is not unusual to own several, like decks of Tarot. I would help her to explore wand lore, of which there is some really good stuff on the net, before choosing a wand. Usually, the wand presents itself to the wizard. My first was willow, then along came crape myrtle, then aspen, oak, yew, then pecan, and most recently, crape myrtle, again. A natural born witch is always being watched by angels, faeries, dragons, and ancestors who decide when to drop a cool tool into the path of the mage.
Sorry to ramble, myself, but the pursuit of such crafts is endless, and each type of mage has his own basic format, as well as endless variations on numerous rich themes. I think pagans sometimes worry too much about programming instead of basic problems of creative engineering.
Today, I saw a few minutes of the British show, _Hex_, about a young witch from like 2004. It had some beautiful and provocative moments, though I can't really vouch for it being deep, as I didn't watch that much. But, it sure did seem like something that young pagans ought to have a look at, like _Legend of the Seeker_ and _Merlin_.
And, as a shaman, it is my belief that juvenile nutrition is one of the most important and powerful areas of knowledge with which we can equip ourselves, as compression of morbidity is the ultimate goal of being a healer, anyway.
Best Blessings for a Cool Yule!
