Some children are enjoying reading 'War Horse' by Michael Morpurgo. Here is a brief summary of the book...
'In 1914, Joey, a young farm horse, is sold to the army and thrust into the midst of the war on the Western Front. With his officer, he charges towards the enemy, witnessing the horror of the frontline. But even in the desolation of the trenches, Joey's courage touches the soldiers around him.'
Some children are reading the classic children's fantasy story 'The Chronicles of Narnia' by C.S.Lewis. The book details the adventures of four siblings―Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy Pevensie― who step through a wardrobe door and into the land of Narnia. It is a land frozen in eternal winter and enslaved by the power of the White Witch. But when almost all hope is lost, the return of the Great Lion, Aslan, signals a great change . . . and a great sacrifice.
