C.S. Lewis' Letters to Children

This week I am presenting a children's book, but it's no picture book. Over the weekend I was given C.S. Lewis' Letters to Children. So far I've loved it. It's been quite some time since I've read the books, and I never even read the entire Narnia series. However, I've loved reading his letters to little ones, and if you have shared his stories with your children, your children will enjoy it too! Here a couple of short letters that Lewis wrote:

Dear Hugh,
C. S. Lewis' Letters to ChildrenOh, very good. Eustace as a dragon is your very best picture yet. Really awesome! Love to all. 
C.S. Lewis

Dear Joan,
Thanks for letter and pictures. I say, you are lucky to have armour: I would have loved it when I was a boy but never came my way. The kind you have would be even better for Vikings etc. than for Arthurian knights. As for doing more than 7 Narnian books, isn't it better to stop when people are still asking for more than to go on till they are tired?
Love from, yours
C.S. Lewis

Dear Hila, (only an excerpt)
....As to Aslan's other name, well I want you to guess. Has there never been anyone in this world who (1.) arrived at the same time as Father Christmas (2.) Said he was the son of the Great Emperor (3.) Gave himself up for someone else's fault to be jeered at and killed by wicked people (4.) Came to life again (5.) Is sometimes spoken of as a Lamb (see the end of the Dawn Treader) Don't you really know His name in this world. Think is over and let me know your answer!....
All good wishes, 
yours ever 
C.S. Lewis

What a fun read it is!
