The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis is a fantasy classic. Ask any number of adult readers of fantasy what their first fantasy book was and many will list one of the Chronicles of Narnia. I don’t have statistics to back that up, but it’s a trend I’ve observed. I am no exception to this. The book was recommended to me by my third or fourth grade English teacher, and I read it reluctantly…School had taught me to hate reading. Wardrobe was the first book to really capture my imagination, forcing me to make full use of the library next door as I tore through the rest of the series with a theretofore hunger I’d never experienced. So it was with some excitement and nervousness that I revisited Narnia while reading it to my oldest son (age 5).
