The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe

As a Christian mom, I feel like it is almost required for me to read C.S. Lewis' The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe to my kids.  I finally have gotten around to reading it to them and they have enjoyed it. 
I tried to explain to the girls that this was an allegory and Aslan was God, the White Witch was Satan, etc.  Neither of my kids seemed to understand that at all.  Perhaps they are still too much of "concrete thinkers."  So the theological lesson is not getting through to them, but they are enjoying it as a story.

I have never read any of the other books in the series, but the girls are enjoying this one, so I may try the others.

I have the whole series in the order which is meant to be read. It is good, because at least I can follow the progression.
