By: C.S. Lewis
One of my favorite books is The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. I will find any excuse to read it; this year, I threw it in as a read aloud for the daughter for school in March when we were focusing on Ireland, since C.S. Lewis was born in Belfast, Northern Ireland. Another reason I read it was because of Bring Up Burns reading challenge; we're to read a book about siblings. In this book there are four siblings-two sons of Adam and two daughters of Eve. These siblings go into a wardrobe and find themselves in Narnia-a land that has been under the curse of the White Witch. But, the curse slowly breaks.
A few things I did with my daughter while reading this book:
Replicated one of the scenes with my daughter. When Lucy first went to Mr. Tumnus's house and had tea with him:
And really it was a wonderful tea. There was a nice brown egg, lightly boiled, for each of them, and then sardines on toast, and then buttered toast, and then toast with honey, and then a sugar-topped cake... p. 15Printed off some coloring pages from the internet, and Charis and I colored them in. (Take a guess which one is my daughter's page.)
When were you first introduced to The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe?
