    I know that some Christians have a problem with fantasy stories but I don’t and I am a christian,too. I think some can be good and give our children an imaginative spark in a good way. I love seeing this in my children when they come up with fresh ideas.

    Does anyone have any favorite literature of this type that you would recommend? My children are almost 12(dd) and 8(ds). A couple that I am thinking of for them are An Indian in the Cupboard and Peter Pan.Any others?


    These are some of our fantastical favorites:

    The Chronicles of Narnia series by CS Lewis

    The Hobbit by JRR Tolkien

    The Princess and the Goblin by George Macdonald

    The Chronicles of Prydain series by Lloyd Alexander

    Rachel 😀


    This is for slightly older children, although your 12yo may be able to handle it:

    A Wrinkle in Time by Madeline L’Engle. It has some sequels, but I think the first one is the best.



    These maybe aren’t as up to “snuff” as the previous ones mentioned but I remember reading The Sword of Shannara trilogy by Terry Brooks when I was in High School. . .and I loved them!



    We read fairy tales like the (insert color) Fairy Books, and such, but draw the line at things like Harry Potter that glorify witch-craft and sorcery.
