The Chronicles of Narnia is a collection of marvelous stories by C.S. Lewis. Most of us have read at least The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe sometime during choldhood and this book brings back all of those wonderful feelings. This is a great book to read with your children and introduce them to the fantastic world of Narnia. I really love the complex themes and metaphors in the story that allow you to have some great discussions with your children. The book explores many ways for God to appear and teaches some great lessons along the way. It is a pretty big book so if you plan to read to your children during bed time, plan for the long haul. I would also suggest picking up the hard cover version because the paperback cover can end up pretty ratty after a while!
