Small Glimpses of Glory

Great reads can influence what you see and hear for a lifetime.

There is no better time of year than now to begin reading C. S. Lewis's Chronicles of Narnia to your children. My heart always finds home among Aslan and the characters, but especially this is so during the holidays. And our eyes are drawn up in thankfulness and wonder when we return to this world from Narnia.

The Complete Chronicles of Narnia (our family fave)
The Wood Between The Worlds
The Magician's Book
Companion To Narnia (my favorite)

If we are willing to look, there are small glimpses of glory all around us - and what we see in this world has a love affair with what our heart can see in great stories. 

The library carries the classic series, along with shorter versions for younger children, companion books with swoon-worthy maps and even a critic's point of view. 

Which is your favorite? I'm quite partial to The Silver Chair.
Which is your children's favorite?
