The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe is often a classic children's story and component with the greater Chronicles of Narnia collection.

Amongst the greatest possibilities are the lion the witch as well as the wardrobe 1979 cartoon version as well as the BBC kid's television sequence.

Growing up with these classics, the very thought of them brings a smile to my face and vivid memories of Turkish Delight and discovering gifts, of meeting Aslan for the first time and an epic battle of good vs evil. Memories of Tumnus and his wish that he had studied geography more as a young fawn so he would know the city of 'War Drobe' in the far land of 'Spare Oom' just makes me laugh. The story brings to mind the innocence of childhood, the terrible price of selfishness, the virtue of love and self-less giving, and the strength found in being a friend when its most needed.

For young children, the lion the witch and also the wardrobe cartoon model is cute, clear, and creative.

Charming could describe this recreation that bounces out with the screen and into the heart. A child very easily falls into the role of Lucy as she discovers all that's Narnia, and finds her own strength as she admits her mistakes, faces them, and stands for great against evil.

The BBC children's tv series is more serious and with more of the British accent that Lewis enthusiasts want. It is witty and intelligent, beautiful and full of depth. When originally aired in 1988, it left audiences waiting eagerly for the next episode. In this small screen adaptation, the viewer has the opportunity to find their self stepping through the wardrobe with the Pevensie children into the enchanted world of Narnia and discover a magical land, mystic creatures, true friends and false allies, talking Beasts, evil witches, and the opportunity to change the world and inspire hope in the hopeless in a cold and barren land.

With either version, the center breaks as deception ensnares the center of Edmund. The only remedy for Edmund and Narnia is the "deeper magic from before the dawn of time", selfless sacrifice. To believe that a easy children's series can start with the lesson that the only cure for selfishness is selflessness is winsome.
