I went to an alternative high school and one of the advantages of that was being able to help shape my own curriculum. Instead of having to read the standards like My Darling, My Hamburger, my teachers guided me towards quality literature that fit my own particular interests like fantasy and history. I have to give credit to my teacher Wendy for introducing me to The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. Now, I have to admit that for some reason, I’ve not been able to get into the movies. Crazy right? I think it’s just that I got so lost in the world of the books that nothing can compare to the movie I created in my own mind. My daughter and son-in-law are a different matter! They adore the movies and were right there as soon as the latest Hobbit movie opened to check it out for themselves. This list of ultimate LOTR must haves is perfect for those Tolkien fans on your list!
