Cover of The Lion, the Witch and the WardrobeThe Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe   by C.S. Lewis --I reread this one every year!  The other books in the series are also favorites of mine, especially The Horse and His Boy.

Cover of A Wrinkle in TimeA Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L'Engle--A Science Fiction classic!  My 5th grade teacher, Miss Julie Denny (now Mrs. James)  read this book to our class.  I think she also read the next two books to us.  Reading aloud to my classes is a priority to me because Miss Denny read to me!
