The Hobbit; Rikki Tikki Tavi

I read the Hobbit to the girls over the last month or two. They really enjoyed it, but one thing I noticed is that towards the end (when they reach lake town) the style of language gets more advanced, more like what you find in the Lord of the Rings. And the battle sequence at the end was not very interesting to my girls... so overall thier attention waned towards the end. But I still loved it through and through.

Then we picked up Rikki Tikki Tavi and read that over a few nights. That is a delightful little story. I love the mongoose family motto "Run and find out!".
