During the summer, a lot of students have reading challenges they need to meet where they read a certain amount of books to earn prizes. We say, “Challenge accepted!” And we encourage children to pick books they love!
Star Wars: The Force Awakens was a huge hit in theaters and we feel that these three titles are sure to win your Padawans over!
1. LEGO Star Wars: Chronicles of Force: I’ve been collecting DK Publishing’s Hardcover LEGO books since my boys were pre-school age. We always loved LEGOs, these books come with a collector LEGO minifigure and they are a fun guide that peeks into various book and movie themes. We own Harry Potter, DC and Star Wars versions. The newest book, LEGO Star Wars: Chronicles of the Force, is the most up-to-date companion to LEGO Star Wars. Inside is detailed information about the latest sets and minifigures, illustrated with extensive LEGO photography. You will find this informative, 96 page guide to a LEGO Galaxy in a bookstore near you – or Amazon. (MSRP $16.99)
2. Star Wars: The Force Awakens: The Visual Dictionary: This 80 page guide uses a mix of authoritative text, bold graphics and stunning photography to chronicle the latest film saga. It’s both a behind-the-scenes look and it’s an in-depth understanding of the world of Kylo Ren, Rey and Finn. I really loved their descriptions of the attire the characters wore throughout the movie, along with the weapons and accessories, great for cosplay! (MSRP $19.99)
3. Star Wars: The Force Awakens Incredible Cross Sections: While the Visual Dictionary was an in-depth look at the world, people and attire – The Force Awakens Incredible Cross Sections breathes to life the weapons, engines, and technology utilized in the various crafts. There are 12 awe-inspiring artworks of the vehicles and accompanying text that explains the backstory and key features. The book is large, a wonderful coffee table book. The vehicles explained are: Stormtrooper Transport, Poe’s X-Wing, Command Shutle, Finalizer, Rey’s Speeder, Tie Fighter, SF Tie Fighter, Quadjumper, Millenium Falcon, Han’s Freighter, Resistance Transport, and Snow Speeder. There is also a size comparison page, so you can get a better idea of what they would look like in the sky above you! This 48-page guide retails for $19.99.
These three books are sure to put a fire under our summer readers as they delve into the weird, wonderful and exciting world of Star Wars. The combination of entertaining text and eye-catching images will keep and encourage our children to love reading. These books were provided for review from DK, a division of Penguin Random House – www.dk.com.
