By the way - I've had exactly the same idea as you bug my son is only 4 yrs old, so a few years yet before doing the reading-building journey!
The minifigure designs are absolutely flawless.
#79003 - Unexpected Gathering
Then skipping Rivendell, the next is in the Misty Mountains
#79010 - Goblin King Battle
#79000 - Riddles for the Ring
#79002 - Attack of the Wargs
#79001 - Escape From Mirkwood Spiders
The next few happen between Spiders & Barrel but are only briefly mentioned in a couple of lines, one roughly here & one later on iirc so I've put them in an order that makes sense to me
#79011 - Dol Guldur Ambush
#79014 - Dol Guldur Battle
#79015 - Witch King Battle
Then back with the actual story
#79004 - Barrel Escape
#79013 - Laketown Chase
#79018 - The Lonely Mountain
#79016 - Attack on Laketown (makes most sense here)
#79013 - Mirkwood Elf Army
#79017 - Battle of the Five Armies
I think that's all. I'll get to LOTR next, hopefully no odd things appearing there that should be here.
Also, awesome idea
#9469 - Gandalf Arrives
#9472 - Attack on Weathertop
#79006 - The Council of Elrond
#10237 - The Tower of Orthanc
#79005 The Wizard Battle
#9473 - The Mines of Moria
The next couple make most sense here
#9476 - The Orc Forge
#9471 - Uruk Hai Army
#9474 - The Battle of Helm's Deep ( Tower of Orthanc is useful again here)
#9470 - Shelob Attacks
#79007 - Battle at the Black Gate.
No Minas Tirith or Pelennor Fields so you'll just have to sleep do with a bunch of knights, some walls, some orcs & a troll or two.
