Chronicles of Narnia CD Magic

"Look sharp!" shouted Edmund. "all catch hands and keep together. This is magic - I can tell by the feeling. Quick!" ...

"Next moment the luggage, the seat, the platform, and the station had completely vanished. The four children, holding hands and panting, found themselves standing in a woody place."
       - excerpt from Prince Caspian, The Chronicles of Narnia

On a recent drive to Stone Zoo we felt ourselves pulled into the world of Narnian magic almost as forcefully and Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy.

The Focus on the Family Radio Theatre actors and sound effects crew did a masterful job of creating Narnia in your imagination. You feel the excitement of the children at being back in Narnia. You smell the salt water as they wade out to catch a drifting boat. And you taste the apples that eat for lunch, supper, and breakfast when they first return.

The Chronicles of Narnia Focus on the Family Radio Theatre Series is so well done that we almost didn't want to leave our van and tour the zoo. Almost.

This was not the first time we listened to the series. The Narnia CD series is one of our a favorite road trip activities! We listened to all of the CDs as we drove to Arkansas and Washington, DC. I'm sure we'll listen again on future vacations!

If you have any road trips planned this summer I highly recommend you add to your CD collection with this series! The magic of Narnia makes time fly as miles of countryside whiz by outside your car window.

Which Narnia book is your favorite?

Definite favorite here...for the whole family, parents included! Narnia and Adventures in Odyssey come along on our road trips (and day to day for that matter!). I highly recommend both from Focus on the Family Radio Theatre--they do it right!

The radio theater version is good, but I still prefer the unabridged. My favorite is (shockingly-ha!) The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe!

I do like this Radio drama. When Bookworm1 was ill once he listened to three stories straight through! And said he really, really liked them! I do also, and I'm not an audio learner.

Glad y'all found some time to enjoy Narnia this past month!

I've never listened to the Radio drama version. I might have to give it a try if I can find it about somewhere.

I don't have favorites when it comes to Narnia, just less-favorites. My less favorites are The Horse and His Boy and The Last Battle (although I like The Horse and His Boy much better after digging into it deeply during last year's challenge. Maybe I'll find the same to be true when I get to The Last Battle somewhere around 2015.
