I read the books before most of the homeschoolers here were born. We had never heard of homeschooling - it was something upper middle class people in England might do with their children.

Back to the topic - I like VDT because it's full of adventures, there is so much learning and character development, and there are lots of memorable and loveable characters introduced. It ends with one of Lewis' best wistful moments as an adventure finishes with friends parting.
“Not all of us can choose what we give up. The things we love are taken or are never ours at all. If we’re lucky, life is defined not by what we let go, but what we let in: friendship and kind words, frailty and hope.”
