I know my spouse read this book and its sequels to our kids multiple times. I probably did some reading as well. Parts of this book, especially the beginning parts, seemed quite familiar. Other parts not so much. Whatever, my spouse recently began lobbying me to re-read the Narnia series to myself. I think she got tired hearing about all the Victorian novels and 1930s pulp fiction I have been reading. And so, I've begun with the Chronicles of Narnia
This is a great book for children. It's a book that should be read aloud to children. The style is in the form of a told story, with little asides and comments, a very charming approach. In about two years, my 2-year-old grandson, Anderson, will be old enough for this book. I think I'll kidnap him for a couple of weeks so I can read this book to him, a chapter or two each night. Otherwise, his parents will be reading it to him, which will be nice for them, but not nearly so much fun for me.
