I just read the "Letters to Children" by CS Lewis and passed it on to
my mom for Christmas. What a wonderful compilation! I think in writing
for children Lewis shows how simple his most profound ideas are, whether in
Narnia or this world. It surprised me how many times the ideas he had gone
to great lengths to flesh out in Screwtape and other books were so simply
put into use in these letters.
Anyway, I just thought I'd send this out as a recommendation for a
quick holiday read that really made me smile at times, and certainly made
me want to write to my little nephew.
