Your local library is a treasure trove waiting to be discovered. It contains an abundance of books which can be borrowed for free. Introduce your child to this hoard of reading riches and teach her to love the library.
If you don’t have a local library, a good online substitute is AbeBooks.com. And while it’s not free, there are tons of Abebooks.com coupons around that you use to make it virtually free.
First, get your child a library card. Be sure to get one for yourself and let your child see that you love the library too.
Most libraries have a children’s section. This contains a range of books for all ages; picture books for small children, beginners reading books, novels for ages 5-12 and teen fiction for ages 12 and up. Give your child a tour of the library shelves. Show him how the books are arranged in alphabetical order by author’s surname and let him find where his favorite writers are located.
Point out how reference and fact books are arranged by subject. Help her find the books about space travel, insects, fashion design, ancient Egyptians, deep sea exploration; whatever grabs her interest. Leave the choice to her. She might surprise you by being keen on a subject you didn’t know she liked.
When your child asks a question, make a note of it. Next time you visit the library, teach him to find the information in a book. Explain how the contents page and index are used. Show him how to search for a particular word, name or topic. Research skills are an important life tool which can build his confidence by enabling him to find answers by himself.
Teach your child how to ask the staff for help in finding a book. Once your child feels familiar with the surroundings and the staff, the library will seem a less intimidating place. She’ll be more likely to want to return.
Remember to be aware of the length of loan times to avoid any overdue fees. It’s also a good idea to teach your child library etiquette. Keep voices down and respect other library users.
Look out for events and programs in your library. Many libraries hold story telling sessions, summer reading programs, writing workshops or music, arts and crafts events. Take part in such an event and your child will regard the library as a fun place.
Make this trip a part of your weekly routine and you’ll soon have your child asking, “When are we going to the library?”
J. R. R Tolkien’s book, The Hobbit is quite possibly one of the best-loved fantasy books around. It has already been translated into well over 50 languages and it was designed to entertain Tolkien’s own children. It is far more light-hearted when compared to The Lord of the Rings and it introduces Bilbo Baggins, Gollum and Gandalf.
The book can be enjoyed by both children and adults, and it is full of adventure, song, laughter and heroism. When Bilbo leaves the Shire behind, he encounters Goblins, Elves, Dwarves and more. His adventures span across Mirkwood, Hobbiton, Rivendell and more as they slowly make their way to the Misty Mountains so they can steal back their own treasure from the dragon Smaug.
The Hobbit is truly a delightful book and it is a great read for children of all ages. In fact, it was quite often taught in schools and it has already captured the hearts of thousands all over the globe.
The books lead on to the Lord of the Rings, with books like the Silmarillion, the Children of Hurin and more providing backstory on Sauron and the history of Middle Earth. Tolkien’s work with the Hobbit is some of his best and he has gone on to achieve so much since it was written. It is said that some of his inspiration came from the wars that he served in himself, but even so, it is a truly remarkable piece of work that deserves as much recognition as possible.
Although The Hobbit book is a single book, the films split the book into three parts. The first is An Unexpected Journey, then the Desolation of Smaug before finally leading into the Battle of the Five Armies. This really does bring Tolkien’s work to life, and it was directed by Peter Jackson who also helped to direct The Lord of the Rings. The film releases have drawn a lot of attention to the books themselves and it is one of the reasons why the books are still so popular to this day.
So as you can see, the books have really brought joy and laughter to children across the world and Tolkien’s work will certainly go down in history as being one of the best pieces of work to ever have been created.

Harry Potter is quite possibly one of the best books to ever be written in the children’s fantasy genre. Everyone knows about this story: it’s kind of the Amazon.com of children’s books…it’s everywhere. Harry Potter is a very miserable and lonely boy, he is shunned by his relatives and he is forced to sleep in the cupboard underneath the stairs.
On his 11th birthday, a giant named Hagrid informs Harry that he is actually a wizard and that he will be attending the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, not to mention that he also learns that he is a hero in the wizarding world.
When Harry learns about this, he is overjoyed and he can’t wait to start. He befriends Ronald Weasley and Hermione Granger. Things quickly take a turn for the worst when a troll breaks out of the Hogwarts dungeon and as the year progresses, they soon find out that Hogwarts has a lot of secrets that are yet to be discovered. This includes a three-headed dog named Fluffy, and that it is guarding the Sorcerer’s Stone. When Harry finds out that someone is trying to steal it, he and his friends take very quick action to try and find out who, and most of all, why.
Harry Potter and Voldemort
Harry and his friends go deep into the school and it is there where Harry is forced to do battle with the very wizard who tried to kill him as a child. He is able to save the stone, although he nearly gave his own life in the process. This is just the start of things for Harry Potter, and year after year he is faced with new challenges.
Things get worse and worse for him, yet the books are written with children in-mind and this makes them a great read for just about anyone who loves a good fantasy book. There are plenty of Harry Potter books out and the series has now ended, with the last one being entitled The Deathly Hallows.
J. K. Rowling has done a fantastic job writing these books and she really has created an entire world that kids can escape to when they go to bed at night.
