6. i was able to read this book in about an hour. I really enjoyed learning things I did not know about Tolkien. The way the book was written makes me want to read some of the other books in this series.

7. When our upper elementary and junior high students are doing research these would be great books to use. The bibliography at the back of the book would be very useful to find more information about their authors. I could do a mini lesson on how to use the bibliography.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0448483025, Paperback)

Best known for his epic Lord of the Rings trilogy and The Hobbit, J.R.R. Tolkien was born in British-occupied South Africa. His early life was full of action and adventure. Tolkien spent his childhood roaming the British countryside with his family and could read and write by age four. He was naturally gifted with languages and used this skill as a signals officers in World War II as well as in his fantasy writing. By creating alternate universes and inventing languages in his work he demonstrated that imaginary realms were not just for children. Fondly remembered as the “Father of High Fantasy,” Tolkien’s books have inspired blockbuster movies and legions of fans.
