Purpose of this Blog...

You may have noticed that not all books are equal in capturing children's imaginations and in cultivating those innocent, tender souls. My goal is to help you find the ones that do!

Fifth Day of Christmas: 20 GO-OLD RINGS!

The Hobbit, An Unexpected Journey
One Ring inscription.svg

"Three Rings for the Elven-kings under the sky, 
Seven for the Dwarf-lords in their halls of stone, 
Nine for Mortal Men doomed to die, 
One for the Dark Lord on his dark throne 
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie. 
One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them, 
One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them 
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie."
-J.R.R. Tolkien's epigraph, The Lord of The Rings

...And a Partridge in a Pear Tree.
Love this pocket edition, with illustrations by Tolkien
