    This is an excellent study guide especially for high school and parents. I am participating in walking through the book and questions with my girls and we are all thoroughly enjoying the thought-provoking questions and insight into the story of The Hobbit. We will definitely look at purchasing other study guides.

    The Hobbit E-Guide

    We've used Progeny several times before and really like it. With the Hobbit, Lord of the Ring movies being so popular it seemed the right time to read The Hobbit. The guide is great, and I like how it pulls in Biblical references -- especially that my son can type his answers on the computer instead of handwriting everything.
