Do you struggle when choosing fantasy books for kids?
I am convinced that fantasy is a critically important part of nourishing my children’s imaginations, helping them to see and know the truth better than they could if they didn’t read it.
And yet. I struggle.
I never read much fantasy as a child, myself, and as an adult I have a hard time knowing which stories will nourish my children, and which are better to pass up. Navigating the world of fantasy can be tricky for people like me.
Today? We’re going to talk all about it. Join Carolyn Leiloglou and myself for a conversation about how to know which fantasy books are worth our time and what it really does for the mind and heart of a child.
Listen in as we chat about:
- how to choose good fantasy books
- the four kinds of stories
- Carolyn’s favorite read-aloud!
