Narnia Series – C. S. Lewis
The first book to read in this series is The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe. The main characters are the Pevensie siblings – Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy. The book starts in 1940 England. The Pevensie children are evacuated to an old house in the country because of the war. The house is owned by Professor Kirke, a kind older man who likes the children. One day, Lucy discovers a beautiful wardrobe that turns out to also be a portal to a magical place called Narnia. She meets a faun named Mr. Tumnus and has tea with him. When she goes back, she finds that no time at all has passed. Lucy finally gets her siblings into Narnia with her, but they are plunged into a war there as well. The White Witch has taken over Narnia from Aslan, the previous ruler. The Pevensie children are part of a prophecy that says that they will save Narnia. With help from several new friends, and a betrayal from someone close, will they succeed?
E – This was a series that Dad read to us when I was about 8. I can remember really liking it. My favorite character is Edmund because of how much he grows in just the first book, and then the next couple as well. The movies also were really good.
Number The Stars – Lois Lowry
This book is about 10-year-old Annemarie Johansen growing up in 1943 Copenhagen. Annemarie can remember what her life was like before the war started. She and her best friend Ellen Rosen were free to walk the streets, they didn’t have food shortages, and the Nazis weren’t all over the place. But now everything has changed. And the Nazis won’t stop. Now the Jews living in Denmark are being “relocated”. Ellen’s family is Jewish, so to protect Ellen, she moves in with the Johansen family and pretends to be the third daughter. Then Annemarie has to go on a dangerous mission to save her best friend’s life. And she can’t back out.
E – I think that I like this book so much because it is a fiction book, but it is full of true facts. World War II has been very interesting to me for a while too, and I really like fiction books in that time period. This book is a little young, but I think that it is a good one. It is nice to read about a WWII character from a slightly more remote area or country.
Thank you for joining us on this journey through our favorites. We are just over halfway through and reminding ourselves of books we want to reread.
