How good are your story-telling skills?The record-breaking success of the films of J.R.R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings and the recent release of C.S. Lewis's The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe has meant that parents, perhaps unfamiliar with these stories, have found themselves in a culture awash with references to 'Middle Earth' and 'Narnia'.This book is for those who want to know more about the stories of these great authors. Those already acquainted with the writings of Tolkien and Lewis will find it a fascinating insight into their friendship and subject matter but what William Chad Newsom seeks to do is introduce these books to new readers, with a particular emphasis on the role of parents as storytellers.Each chapter contains advice on how to get the most from each book when parents read them to, or together with, their children.Lewis once wrote a snippet of poetry to Tolkien in which he refers to the importance of 'talking of dragons': of capturing the imagination of young minds. This delightful book explains that if parents want their children to grow up trusting in God then they, too, must 'talk of dragons': stretching their children's imagination outside the materialistic world into a spiritual one.Full of suggestions and insights Talking of Dragons will prove a joy to your family as you discover the wonderful tales of Lewis and Tolkien.
