Summer Reading: The Hobbit – J.R.R. Tolkien

This year’s novel is an adventurous pick that takes students along the hero’s journey with the ever-so-clever Bilbo Baggins.  The Hobbit is a timeless piece that peaks the interest of almost any reader willing to delve into it.  Students will read closely and be prepared to academically discuss characterization, plot, figurative language, theme, and elements of an epic tale.  The protagonist journeys across vast lands, encounters dangerous creatures, and builds friendships that last a lifetime.  The motifs of the book include acceptance, determination, independence, open-mindedness, coming-of-age, self-confidence, and righteousness. 

 Please have the book The Hobbit read by the first day of school, as we have instruction built around the novel. The Hobbit is located at any bookstore or online.  It is recommended that the student have a physical copy of the book for taking annotations and notes while reading. However, a PDF link of the book is listed below for your use.
