We are starting back to school on Monday (part time - will start full fledged second week of August when all their day camps end) and we are doing Further Up & Further In - a study of the Chronicles of Narnia books.
The FU&FI (that sounds bad) manual goes in the order the books take place - starting with The Magician's Nephew. But I have also read elsewhere online that it's better to read the books in the order they were written rather than their chronological order. We are only familiar with The Magician's Nephew and The Lion The Witch & The Wardrobe, which as far as the story goes, would be in that order - but I admit, we were familiar with the Lion book and then later read The Magician's Nephew, and it was almost better that way, because reading about Aslan breathing life into this wonderful world we'd come to love in the 2nd book was even better - so my question is -
Would you read them in the order the story takes place, or in the order that Lewis wrote them?
