The Magicians Nephew
I have mentioned on her before that my husband and I like to read to each other. We use to commute an hour to and from to work everyday. That's how we read Harry Potter together, the Shannara Series and so forth. After I had our baby and wasn't driving with him as much we stopped. But we both really missed it and decided to start again. He has never read the Chronicles of Narnia so we decided to start. Well after a long time (since we don't drive as much) we finished this tonight on our way back from a birthday party. I really enjoyed reading this again especially with my hubby. Our baby girl seemed to enjoy listening to me read the story out loud as well.
Anyway for those of you who don't know The Magicians Nephew is the 1st book in C.S. Lewis's Chronicles of Narnia and starts off with the story of Digory and Polly and how they were able to not only enter into the land of Narnia. But to see it's creation and help this new world get started. I am a Christian and I know C.S. Lewis was a christian although he didn't like the idea of organized religion. I with a lot of other people can see the symbolism in these books and how they relate to our Lord and Savior as well as our Heavenly Father.I feel like reading them is like being in Sunday school. I know this idea has stirred up some heated controversy. But I do see this in his books. And that's just my opinion. But religious or not this book has a wonderful story line and can help spark the imagination in anyone.
