Star Wars for the Young Generation! @DisneyHyperion #DisneyBooks

We would definitely call ourselves a Star Wars family! My husband and I grew up on the original movies and now we get to share it with our kids aged 7, 6 and 2 and they all LOVE it. My 7 year old counted down the days to the new Star Wars movie The Force Awakens for over a year! He also happens to be an avid reader so while I thought these books could be slightly advanced for him with a 10 – 14 age recommendation, I knew his love of the subject would get him through!

I previewed the books before giving to him and thought he could handle it. The words are big, chapters are short and there are lots of cool pictures to go along with the stories, usually spanning two pages each so they take up quite a bit of room.

Each book begins with the classic Star Wars line “A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away…” Each adventure focuses on different characters including Han Solo and Chewbacca, Princess Leia and Luke Skywalker. They offer foreshadowing of things to come in the latest Star Wars: The Force Awakens movie.

What’s cool about these books is the way they are written, you can just picture them in a movie because they are so inline with the characters and settings in the movies.

They all take place between Star Wars: A New Hope and Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back. For kids this is always a bit confusing as to the order of things but my son didn’t seem to mind. He enjoyed the books and wanted to continue on after reading Smugglers Run: A Han Solo Adventure and is currently enjoying his Moving Target: A Princess Leia Adventure. I have no doubt he’ll continue on with The Weapon of A Jedi: A Luke Skywalker Adventure and then probably start all over again!
