The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe
The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe: The Chronicles of Narnia | C. S. Lewis
Illustrations in this ebook appear in vibrant full color on a full-color ebook device, and in rich black and white on all other devices. Narnia . . . a land frozen in eternal winter . . . a country waiting to be set freeFour adventurers step through a wardrobe door and into the land of Narnia, a land enslaved by the power of the White Witch. But when almost all hope is lost, the return of the Great Lion, Aslan, signals a great change . . . and a great sacrifice. The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe is the second book in C.S. Lewis's The Chronicles of Narnia, a series that has become part of the canon of classic literature, drawing readers of all ages into a magical land with unforgettable characters for over fifty years. This is a stand-alone read, but if you would like to explore more of the Narnian realm, pick up The Horse and His Boy, the third book in The Chronicles of Narnia. Supports the Common Core State Standards.

The oldest #sff I own. My grandmother bought me this Chronicles of Narnia collection in 1987 for my 10th birthday. I‘m hoping to one day have a child and be able to pass these along for them to enjoy. #24in48

I never read this book as a kid, and now having spent nearly two hours on it I don‘t quite understand why so many people are fascinated with it. Overall not a bad book, but it was one I found myself looking forward to the end of.

Reading with my daughter, who loved it. Not sure I ever actually fully read it as a kid. I wasn't great at finishing stories if I knew the ending already! Now to locate a copy of the rest of them!

Book #37: Continuing on through my fantasy kick, I decided to hit up one of the hallmarks of children's literature, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. However, I like to read stories in chronological order even if they were not originally written in that order, so I started with the first book in The Chronicles of Narnia series (chronologically)...

This girl finds a magical world, but her siblings think she's crazy and a liar. This continues until one day her brother also finds it, even though he keeps calling her a liar because he's planning on selling out his siblings for candy. They then all wander in the snow a lot until the lion breathes on stuff and defeats the evil witch. Also, this all takes place in a closet.

My Dear Lucy,
        I wrote this story for you, but when I began it I had not realized that girls grow quicker than books. As a result you are already too old for fairy tales, and by the time it is printed and bound you will be older still. But some day you will be old enough to start reading fairy tales again.

Good morning! 🌞 My assignment today is to read The Lion, The Witch & The Wardrobe. I remember reading this when I was really little and literally trying to push the wall of my closet out. I think I woke my mom up one night because I was rummaging around and clashing the hangers together. Sorry, mom! I was just trying to get some Turkish delight. 🤣🤷🏻‍♀️

Modern Fantasy. This is yet another book I would love to continue. It‘s perfect for older children and probably to read aloud as well. It would be a perfect introduction to the rest of the Narnia series if read aloud.

The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe by C. S. Lewis, 1950. This novel tells of a beautiful world away from reality, full of adventure and color. The story happens in the middle of the war and while the world the siblings find in the story is real, it really represents the world many of the real children during that time wished they could go to.

quote
cjbattiste

“Remember that all worlds draw to an end and that noble death is a treasure which no one is too poor to buy.”

blurb

This series is another that blows my mind. I love C.S. Lewis‘s use of children. This really helps resonate with the kids who have & will read the series.

This is one series I failed to read as a child, but loved it anyways by how it moved my friends. I absolutely adore the storyline and creativeness.

Clare-Dragonfly In my opinion, you SHOULD read Wardrobe before Nephew. That‘s the order they were written in and they‘re just so much better that way. Yes, this is a literary hill I will die on 😆😅 3mo
HOTPock3tt @Clare-Dragonfly I also prefer to read in the order things were written (if the other book is written as a backstory for more information, then I‘ll get there as the author intended) thanks for pointing out the difference! ♥️🤗 (edited) 3mo

Jadis, or the White Witch, as she is known over Narnia. Not only she magically forced Narnia into a 100-year state of frozen snow and ice, she was a cold and evil ruler.

The ‘Turkish Delight‘ scene where the White Witch quite literally *sweet* talks Edmund into sharing information about his siblings and asks him to bring them to see her ❄️🍬

“...and the more he ate the more he wanted to eat, and he never asked himself why the Queen should be so inquisitive”.

I have been revisiting some of my childhood favorites.
What I have noticed this time around is that even though I would call this juvenile fiction it is really quite deep and sophisticated. The passage where Aslan‘s instructs to Peter to wipe his sword stood out to me as if for the first time. Lots of thinking during this re-read.
This was always a favorite of mine and still holds so much of the magic and wonder I remember from my childhood. ❤️

Christinak Just a note: I found this cover art online - I do not know it it is real as I cannot find it on any harpercollins site. I hope they will re-publish with this jacket design by Jeffrey Nguyen. I would buy it in a heartbeat!!! 5mo

C.S. Lewis's first installment of the Chronicles of Narnia is "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe" (F). Known to many through Disney's film adaptation, Lewis's lovable characters and compelling plot are a great opportunity for RA.
#lae3414sp19

dayuso1 This is also a great IR choice for older students. Teachers can meet the UDL standard for Engagement (7.3 - minimize distractions) by providing scheduled private reading time in class. For ELLs, teachers can assign short HW readings to make the text more digestible (38). 5mo
dayuso1 As an extension, the link below provides a variety of age-appropriate graphic organizers to help students keep track of important information (simple symbolism, plot, character development). The source suggests that students keep a reading journal, with the organizers included as they continue to read the novel. 5mo
DrSpalding Agreed for IR! What I didn‘t mention in class was the fact that many believe Lewis‘ work to be religious therefore in public schools, we need to be cognizant of this. 5mo
