By C. S. Lewis
“Wrong will be right, when Aslan comes in sight,
At the sound of his roar, sorrows will be no more,
When he bares his teeth, winter meets its death,
And when he shakes his mane, we shall have spring again.”
– C. S. Lewis

Four siblings, Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy, are sent to stay in the country in the midst of war-time England, with an old and rather eccentric Professor. While exploring his large home, the youngest, Lucy, discovers a magical wardrobe that opens into the beautiful, although wintry cold, land of Narnia.
While there, she makes a friend in the faun Mr. Tumnus, and hears about the cruel White Witch, who has held an icy grip over Narnia for a hundred years. Her brother, Edmund, also discovers Narnia and comes under the influence of the White Witch himself.
When all four siblings return to Narnia, and they discover Edmund’s betrayal, they are assisted by the kind and honest creatures of Narnia to find the great lion Aslan, who is their only hope.
This is a magical story about betrayal, redemption, and forgiveness. This fierce tale of good versus evil echoes the greatest redemptive story; that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
There are some scary scenes involving the wicked White Witch which may be distressing for younger children.
While it may be tempting as parents to reveal to our children that Aslan may be seen as a “Christ figure”, we encourage you to allow your children to discover who Aslan might be for themselves. They may surprise you by connecting the dots themselves!
