Since I no longer teach preschool and my "baby" is in second grade, "Tiny Tuesdays" are not so tiny. Nonetheless--I'm still going to write about elementary school books. My son and I finished reading The Magician's Nephew by C.S. Lewis. It is part of The Chronicals of Narnia series. Though written last, the books takes place first chonologically.
So, what does a second grader get out of The Magician's Nephew? He thinks the witch is funny--perhaps it was our not-so-dramatic reading aloud. His favorite part was when the horse grew wings. Hum? Another example of how adults read a text very differently (thank goodness . . . both ways) than eight-year-old boys.
Lewis is one of the most influential Christian writers in the 20th century. Some biological information can be located at the following cite: C. S. Lewis Homepage.
