This was our second read aloud book that we did in the car. I think I was assigned this book to read in 8th grade, but for some reason I feel like I didn’t actually do the work.
Even if I had, so much of the beauty of the work would’ve been lost on my adolescent mind. This is the genius of C.S. Lewis. He writes fiction that appeals to the imitation of young ears and warms the soul of adults.
In many ways, the Chronicles of Narnia continue to enrich my spiritual life. Visualizing the reality of God through the lens of Aslan, and understanding the wickedness of Satan through the character of the White Witch is profound. Even if you read this work as a child, read it again.
Would I recommend: YES
