Kids have incredible imaginations. An old shipping box to us is a spaceship or lemonade stand to them. The clouds in the sky resemble whales, pirate ships, and bunny rabbits! Kids listen to and read stories with a certain wonder and amazement that is captivating. For the kids in all of us, and for the kids in our lives, GUSELLA wants to share some of the ultimate adventure stories for kids of all ages!
Peter Pan is the classic story about the boy who never grew up. Written by J.M. Barrie, the story follows Peter Pan, Wendy, and her brothers, Michael and John, as they join Peter in the wondrous world of Neverland.
Neverland is a world where children never grow up. Peter and the “Lost Boys” spend their days playing, fighting the dreaded pirate Captain Hook, and going on adventures with Tiger Lily and her band of friends.
Filled with flying, fairies, mermaids, and intrigue, the tale of Peter Pan is timeless and will spark your child’s imagination. Just be ready for when your kids start asking you about your “Happy Thoughts” and shout “Second star to the right and straight on ’til morning!”
The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe
What happens when four children enter an enchanted wardrobe in an old country cottage and find themselves in a land where it is always winter and never Christmas? Adventure! That is the premise of C.S. Lewis’s marvelous tale of The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, the first book in the Chronicles of Narnia.
When Lucy wanders into an enchanted wardrobe one day, she is greeted with a snowy landscape as far as the eye can see. There, she encounters magical creatures, one in particular who tells her that she is in the land of Narnia. Narnia, however, is under a spell from the White Witch, who has put a curse on Narnia so that it is always winter! Lucy escapes back through the wardrobe to tell her siblings, but they don’t believe her!
Finally, her brother enters the wardrobe, then her other siblings follows. Their adventures introduce them fabulous friends like Mr. Beaver, the robin, and the inspiring lion, Aslan.
A perfect story for a snowy day, kids will love how this story turns an ordinary wardrobe or closet into a gateway to another world, where lions talk and where adventure awaits behind every corner!
