books I plan to read to my children.

These are some of my favourite stories and I want to be able to share them with my children someday. There are tricks to finding a good book for reading aloud, you can't choose just anything. The best are in third person and are full of adventure.

MILLY MOLLY MANDY - JOYCE LANCASTER BRISLEY
Beautiful english stories about a girl and her family, her friends and the simple adventures of life.

THE HORSE AND HIS BOY - C.S.LIEWIS
I mean the whole Chronicles of Narnia but this one is my favourite. I love the allusions to God really being in control all the time; pushing the two humans to travel together, being a comfort in the darkness, and protecting us from falling off a cliff through the fog.

INK HEART TRILOGY - CORNELA FUNKIE
Only been read once, I'm waiting to have children to read them, a story of magic and fantastic possibilities.

THE PRINCESS BRIDE - WILLIAM GOLDMAN
also only read once but very funny. This has the whole history of the world's most beautiful woman and how Buttercup obtained the title.

THE LORD OF THE RINGS - J.R.R.TOLKIEN
I tried to get through it but on my own I got lost. But it's a classic so my children should know the story and it's long winded journey.

THE SUN SWORD TRILOGY - BELINDA MURRELL
Haha oh my goodness, the font is huge. I have the last book because the school library has the first 2 and I wanted to actually finish it. There's a sword and gems from it. A ship. Stolen Prince. Bad guy going to marry the queen to take over the kingdom. And of course

HARRY POTTER - J.K.ROWLING
Hogwarts is a home away from home and if reading the books is the way to get there then I will do it to share the magic with them. My own parents were not so sure about the wizarding world, perfectly understandable being Christians and believing that there is evil in the world with all intentions to bring down what is good a pure and lovely- so wanting us not to seek out such destructive powers. My own belief though is that Rowling understands this too, however you can't hide darkness from a child forever. And the magic comes from ones own heritage, its not by selling your soul to Satin and having him do your bidding.


Which of these have you read before? Do you think you will read novels to your children at night?
