Little Men by Louisa May Alcott. The opening chapters of this book inspired me to adopt children as an adult. I love the warmth and kindness demonstrated by Jo and her Professor. This is the edition that I received for Christmas.
The Hobbit is the story of Bilbo Baggins, a hobbit from the shire who goes on the adventure of a lifetime. The Hobbit is less complicated and easier to read than the Lord of The Rings but still full of adventure, excitement and exploration.
