More required reading

I am under this fantasy that there will be required reading for my boys when they are older.

I recently finished reading C.S. Lewis' Reflections on the Psalms and I think that I found the finest chapter that he has ever written in any book of his that I have read. Chapter 9, A Word about Praising, framed the act of praising God in a way that I had not contemplated before. It was so simple it was radical and it helped me come to a deeper understanding of who I am and why I am. Even though Lewis is no fundamentalist I am absolutely going to add this chapter to my "Required Reading" list for my boys. I hope that this list is not just a fantasy of mine. I would like the things that have been helpful to me to be helpful to them as well. I just need to make sure that I am not disappointed if they do not derive the same value out of it than I have. They are unique individuals after all and God has a different course for them than He had (has) for me.
