    "The Hobbit is the best book for all ages. The story of Bilbo Baggins and his journey is amazing and jam packed, full of adventure. It keeps you interested the entire time, which is great for 10 year olds. The story of a plain hobbit he embarks on a dangerous, thrill chasing adventure makes for a great story with wizards, dwarves, elves, knights and even a dragon. The book is a great read for anyone."

    "Ender's Game is the formative book of my childhood. One thing Orson does is understand the point of view of a gifted child in a world full of "normal" children and adults. This book shaped who I am today and I recommend it to everyone."

    "As someone who loves Harry Potter, I immediately dove into this series after finishing up with Hogwarts. It is an exciting fantasy world filled with an awesome dragon. My 10 year old did lose interest after the first chapter, so I'll be saving this series for a couple more years for him."

While these days videos dominate their existence, the real challenge may be to get them to crack open a book. If that is accomplished, they will be rewarded with some real treasures to pass the time in a fun way while leaning new things. "
