This 160-page book provides a full set of Socratic discussion questions for each story with comprehensive answers keyed to the text.  Questions cover Conflict, Plot, Setting, Characters, Theme, and Literary Devices.  In addition, a completed Story Chart graphically outlines the major structural and thematic elements of each story. 

This book will help you lead your students on a guided tour of Narnia.  Along the way, you’ll give them a host of reading techniques they can use for the rest of their lives:   


Ready Readers; The Chronicles of Narnia helps develop good reading comprehension in the very youngest students.  It encourages them to ponder well-designed questions about structure, style, context, and theme in every story they read.


Though the books discussed here were written for young readers, they provide excellent examples of the structural elements common to all stories.  They are therefore useful even in discussions with older students, who read at a higher level, but may be new to the techniques of literary analysis.
