reviewed on + 48 more book reviews

What a wonderful world Narnia is...I was lucky enough to share this world with my 7 year old son as I read this book to him. It is such a beautiful story that can be appreciated by us both. There was the fantasy and whimsy of a world entered into by a secret passage that all kids and I enjoyed. Then there were deeper parallels with bibilical reference that wouldn't be picked up my children probably but adults. I read that these books should be read once as a child and once as an adult and I believe that to be true. The passage describing Aslans death was so deeply written it was difficult for me to read aloud but, not inappropiate for my son to hear. It was a wonderful expirence to share with my child we are looking forward to the rest of the series.
