Purpose of this Blog...

You may have noticed that not all books are equal in capturing children's imaginations and in cultivating those innocent, tender souls. My goal is to help you find the ones that do!

A Christmas Pondering from C.S. LEWIS

     "It seems then," said Tirian, smiling himself, "that the stable seen from within and the stable seen from without are two different places."
     "Yes," said Lord Digory. "Its inside is bigger than its outside."
     “Yes,” said Queen Lucy. “In our world too, a stable once had something inside it that was bigger than our whole world.” (from The Last Battle by C.S. Lewis)


  1. Thank you! And a very happy Christmas!

  2. Christ is Born!

    Lewis' description here is one of my favorite meditations on Heaven. :)
