Did you know Canada.. it's true - Star Wars Reads Day II is coming to Canada October 5, 2013! On October 5th bookstores, libraries and schools all around the world will all be taking part in a one day celebration of literacy.
Star Wars Reads is an international day-long celebration of literacy and all things Star Wars. Last year, 30 authors and 1,500 costumed volunteers participated in over 1,200 Star Wars Reads Day events across North America.
We are HUGE Star Wars fans in this house, have I showed you a few pictures from my boys 6th birthday party in August? We had an all out Star Wars day with Jedi Training, light saber cookies, costumes, the works! My boys love all things Star Wars and that includes books.
Our favourite our the DK Readers, perfect for my Grade 1'ers learning to read, we even include the books on the nightly reading list! (When they get to 50 books they get a prize - whoo!)
Two DK Reader books we have been reading at bed time are DK Readers Star Wars Clone Wars Watch out for Jabba The Hutt and Jedi in Training, both enjoyable story lines, accurate Star Wars information, awesome graphics and perfect for my guys to practice with.
We also love the Star Wars Complete Vehicles - it is packed with visual explorations of more than fifty essential Star Wars spacecraft and landcraft, including the TIE bomber, Imperial shuttle, A-wing, B-wing, and more. Full-color cross-section artwork presents in-depth examinations of each craft's weapon systems, engines, hyperdrives, cockpits, and construction secrets, providing a never-before-seen glimpse at the vehicles that drive the Star Wars universe. The detail is every picture is amazing, it's a great read full of fast facts that my boys are mesmerized over every night.
