The Wind In The Willows
The Wind In the Willows
Today’s children’s tale is a true treasure of story telling with rich and remarkable characters. It reminds me of C.S. Lewis’s Chronicles Of Narnia that I did not include in this almost year long project but nevertheless highly recommend to all. When I first read the Narnia stories as a college student years ago I remember thinking what a wonderful fantasy world that Lewis had created to share with so many. The Wind In The Willows is just such a world too.
The love of stories, of travel and adventure, of talking animals and people, the love of reading and being read to all so expand our minds and our universe. I believe that our loving and infinite source has the same sweet intention for every child, that they experience a full and abundant life. One of these stories might just be the key that unlocks a universe of opportunities and possibilities to the hearer or reader. That is, I think, the reason writer’s write and illustrators draw, to be door keepers to worlds unknown. And never to keep anyone out but to open doors wide for anyone willing to enter in and be enlightened, entertained, and most of all, encouraged.
I hope you enjoy today’s story reading and share it with friends. If you can please do obtain a copy of the book read it and pass it along.
Your friend and fellow traveler,
