What age is the hobbit book appropriate for
The Hobbit Chapter 1
The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings Age-by-Age Guide
Yikes, should I wait? I know my oldest will be fine, but not sure of the younger. So far it seems fine though. My daughter read it independently last year in 7th grade. With that being said, she did have a little trouble in some spots so by the end of the book we finished it off as a read aloud. My 10 year old read it on his own last year, and then begged for LOTR. We respected that and dropped the book.
