If you, and your favorite readers have joined the rest of the world in renewed Star Wars frenzy, then you may enjoy this compilation from my very own Superkiddo. He insists that even the youngest Jedi will find a great book on the list this week.
Goodnight, Darth Vader
What could better to read at night than an intergalactic bedtime story? This book should is sure to become a classic. Vader is the storyteller to young Leia and Luke. They aren’t ready for bed unless they can have a story. You will hear about your favorite Star Wars characters as they all prepare for bed.
Star Wars Jedi Academy
This is a fabulously funny series that middle grade readers will love. It is filled with the antics and angst of tween students, and all of the out of this world mayhem that will resonate with fans of space adventures. Superkiddo is currently on book 3, and it does not disappoint.
LEGO Star Wars: These aren’t the Droids You’re Looking For
If your kiddos love search and find books, then this activity book would delight them. According to Superkiddo, “you have to use your super spy eyes, and the Force, to be successful with these puzzles.” And there you have it.
Ultimate Factivity Collection: Star Wars
This has been one of Superkiddo’s favorite activity books to date. Not only is it filled with Star Wars facts, but it has over 500 stickers! This book is perfect for rainy days, or trips as it will keep kids, and even adults, engrossed in the many activities and fun facts.
Ultimate Factivity Collection: Angry Birds Star Wars
Of course, there are many more activity books, but this one is Superkiddo’s second favorite. Not only is it filled with Star Wars information, but it includes those zany Angry Birds characters as Star Wars characters. Dare I mention the ridiculous amount of stickers again? If you have any holiday roadtrips planned, or just want to increase your collection of quiet time activities, this fun book brings reading, playing, and art together in one package.
Star Wars Workbooks
There are several selections from Kindergarten phonics to 1st grade math, and all of them make learning a fun adventure. If you happen to have a young learner who is reluctant to utilize standard study methods or workbooks, you may find the Star Wars collection of workbooks to be the charm. You can reinforce curriculum concepts without your kiddo ever realizing that they are learning or working.
Star Wars: A New Dawn
If your family members are fans of the Disney XD series Star Wars Rebels, then you will be quite familiar with the characters in this book. Readers will be introduced to Kanan, Hera, Skelly, and Zaluna, who band together to fight against the evil plans of the Empire. Middle grade readers will appreciate the action-packed writing style of John Jackson Miller, and if you happen to make this one of your stories to be read aloud together, there are enough dynamic characters and scenes to keep the entire family engaged.
The upcoming holiday weekend in the USA is a perfect time to grab a few new books. May the Force (of reading) be with you.
Have a great week!
