The period from birth to kindergarten is crucial for developing language and early literacy knowledge, skills, and dispositions (or attitudes). Children with literacy experiences at this age do better in school and in life.

The fascinating world of “The Hobbit” is here once again just in time for holiday entertainment. Come in and check out J.J.R Tolkien‘s wonderful works for your reading pleasure. If you are a new fan, you may want to visit the Tolkien Society where you may share your appreciation of his works. His tales of Middle Earth and the Lord of the Rings truly revived fantasy literature.

Dig deeper into Tolkien with “Simarillion”
“The Silmarillion, along with J. R. R. Tolkien’s other works, forms an extensive, though incomplete, narrative that describes the universe of Eä in which are found the lands of Valinor, Beleriand, Númenor, and Middle-earth within which The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings take place.” (Wikipedia)
