Star Wars A B C - Scholastic

Star Wars A B C
Scholastic
ISBN 9780545227384


From Anakin and Boba Fett to Yoda and Zam, this large format board book is an awesome alphabet book for children and their parents. Each page has a large letter, the name or title of the person, creature or robot, and ships, and also a sentence about them. Each letter is a different style, and the pages are color designed. The letters are fun and the book is a blast to read with children. This book is pleasing to look at and could almost be a coffee table book for adults who are fans of the series. Children will love exploring the pictures and all the different things as they learn the alphabet. Great fun for the whole family, little droids and all.

Star Wars Phonics - Quinlan B. Lee

Star Wars Phonics

Scholastic
ISBN 9780545479523


Star Wars for the next generation! Scholastic has been bringing out a lot of different books from Lego Star Wars, Star Wars activity books and now Star Wars Phonics. I was not sure what to expect when getting this boxed set but it far, far exceeded my expectations.

The Books are:
Book 1 - Meet Anakin - short a
Book 2 - Friends to the End - short e
Book 3 - Jar Jar's Trip - short i
Book 4 - Here Come the Ewoks - short o
Book 5 - How to Be a Jedi - short u
Book 6 - Chase on Endor - long a
Book 7 - Meet Han Solo - long e
Book 8 - Hide Out - long i
Book 9 - Here Come the Clones - long o
Book 10Use the Force, Luke! - long u
Workbook 1 - Short Vowel Sounds
Workbook 2 - Long Vowel Sounds

With a focus of between 5 and 12 key words per book, with repetitions, these books give a lot of practice and will help develop reading skills. Most of the books have full color photo screen shots from the movies on every page and a small white bar on the bottom of the page for the text in a nice large font. The key words for the book are bold print to make them stick out. It was fun just reading through the books and going down memory lane of the movies even as an adult. There is a stronger focus on the original three movies which is awesome.

This box set will be a great tool for parents helping their kids, or in the classroom.

Star Wars The Complete Saga - Jason Fry

Star Wars The Complete Saga
Jason Fry
Scholastic
ISBN 9780545356312

It is incredible that Jason Fry can capture the essence of all 6 movies in 96 pages. Each page contains a series of photos or illustrations with a series of caption boxes. It tells the story from Episode 1 through to Episode 6. Children will love pouring over the book again and again, for the artwork and photos are stunning.

The Star Wars books that Scholastic has released over the last few years are amazing. Either like this one, just a Star Wars book, or the Lego Star Wars books, they are introducing a new generation to stories that have been shaping people for over 30 years. This is another great addition to the Star Wars Library for young readers.

Darth Maul's Mission - Lego Star Wars - Ace Landers and David White

Darth Maul's Mission
Lego Star Wars
Ace Landers (Author)
David White (Illustrator)
Scholastic
ISBN 9780545304412

This book was a lot of fun. It took the characters we know and love and put them in a story a child's imagination could have come up with, such as Darth Maul's Party Town, a beach part with beach balls and sand castle, and Star Destroyers. Wonderfully illustrated and with the Lego Star Wars Characters. The story is light and fun and will entertain and spark the imagination of children either for story telling or creating with their own lego.

The Padawan Menace

Ace Landers

Scholastic

ISBN 9780545404501


Off all the Lego Star Wars and Lego books from Scholastic, this is the only one I find is over the heads of the intended audience. The images are very dark or subdued compared to the rest of the Lego books by Scholastic. This book is an adaptation of a TV special and I feel that something was missed. Overall a first disappointment in a great series.

Star Wars Episode I
The Phantom Menace 3D
Pablo Hidalgo
Scholastic
ISBN 9780545389860

This awesome book takes us through the story of The Phantom Menace in 64 pages. The book has 3D glasses that pull out and put together and then it's like you're right in the action. It is a great read and children will love the 3D images as they read the book many time over. It captures the whole story of the movie and will entertain fans of the series both old and new.

Scholastic
ISBN 9780545312158

The Star Wars books that Scholastic has released over the last few years are amazing. Either like this one, just a Star Wars book, or the Lego Star Wars books, they are introducing a new generation to stories that have been shaping people for over 30 years.

This book was amazing. Done in an overlay board book style with transparent films, it goes through the enhancements, technology and injuries that have gone into turning Anakin Skywalker into Darth Vader. In 22 pages, this book had a wealth of information about the technology in Darth Vader. Children will love pouring over the book again and again. It is another great addition to the Star Wars Library for young readers.

ISBN 9780545304405


This 3D book is amazing. I could not believe the clarity of the 3D images. It is an overview of the whole Anakin story arch in less than 20 pages. This book has amazing graphics and a good overview of the story, from Anakin as a young pod racer to Luke and Darth's fight on the death star. This book will introduce young readers to the Star Wars story and begin the love of a legend.

ISBN 9780545210386


This book was amazing. It is a schematic breakdown of the Falcon's systems and features, some in a sturdy board book style, cut out - each level of the ship is revealed as you flip the pages, and as you traverse the 21 pages of the books you find out about the features of this ship, and the upgrades Han and Chewy have done. Each page has technical specifications, facts and information, as well as operation tips and tricks, and Han Solo's personal notes. The book is fun just to flip through for the casual fan, and will be great for true fans, both boys and girls, to share with their children. Incredible details in the illustrations make this an excellent coffee table book, or for your children's bookshelf if you are willing to share.

I cannot believe that they told the main story of Star Wars in 12 ages of graphic novel-style board book. This story was amazing. For fans of Star Wars this will be a great book to start your children on the stories. For fans of Lego Star Wars it is an awesome book. Some of the illustrations are of Lego packs you can buy: the X-Wing Fighter, Sand Crawler, the Millennium Falcon and more. Join Leia, Luke and Han on this version of their epic story.
