Lewis’ idea of a moral compass as it’s presented in The Voyage of the Dawn Treader. Lewis’ idea that “reading all the right books” is critical to a compass that accurately points us in the right direction will be highlighted. Previews from Walden Media’s forthcoming December 10th release THE CHRONICLES OF NARNIA: THE VOYAGE OF THE DAWN TREADER will be shown and free Educator’s Guides will be distributed.
