So.. has Star Wars mania hit your house yet? We have a 7yrs old and (just turned) 6yrs old in the house and they have been watching star wars for a couple of years now (I totally blame their dad!!!). I am amazed at how easily the Star Wars “bug” has been passed on down the generations. Though personally I love the films, I don’t actually let the kids watch them too often and look for other ways for them to get their star wars fix, but in a more constructive and imaginative way and even educational way.
So I was very pleased to see these three sets of books on the market!!!!!!!
THESE WOULD MAKE GREAT CHRISTMAS GIFTS.. and be SURE to check out the giveaway below! Don’t miss out!

Star Wars Young Readers
My just turned six year old is all over these. She is chuffed to bits that there are some Star Wars things for her and at her reading level. These come as reading levels 1 and 2 (which is also book band yellow and blue).
Star Wars Treasury
My seven year old on the other hand (is almost 8) and is starting out on CHAPTER BOOKS. However, though he likes to read, he still needs “visual breaks” from lots of text – and enjoys chapter books with lots of illustrations (e.g. we got him the specially illustrated Harry Potter (US / UK)vs the the ordinary Harry Potter – the illustrated version is amazing).
So here we get the original trilogy – wonderfully illustrated – true to the movie – in Chapter book format.
A great book for my almost 8yrs old to get into “chapter book reading” but also to enjoy the illustrations.
Great for Bed Time Reading too – I know I will enjoy reading this TO my children too!
FINALLY… an appeal to my crafty side:
Star Wars Workshop
This book comes with sturdy punch out cardboard pieces to make an X-Wing and a Tie Fighter AND …
…A fabulous puzzle book that will surely keep both my kids busy this Christmas!
