Star Wars Tatooine Adventures

Star Wars Tatooine Adventures – Beginning to Read Level 1
From DK Canada

About the book

Tatooine Adventures introduces readers to the hostile desert planet of Tatooine, home of Anakin Skywalker, Luke Skywalker, Jawas, Sand People, and Jabba the Hutt.

Our Thoughts

My son Dominic was pleased to get this book to read.  He has worked hard to master this skill and he was rewarded greatly when I gave him this book to read.  

The book Tatooine Adventures will bring information from the planet Tatooine based on the Star Wars movies.    The reader will learn that the planet has two suns, that Anakin Skywalker was a slave on that planet and that he built C-3PO, that a city on Tatooine is called Mos  Espa, that podracing is a popular sport,  and much more.

When your reader get to difficult words like Mos Eisley, he/she will see the pronunciation in brackets (MOSS IZE-LEE).   It is very helpful to have these even for me the mother who knows about Star Wars but might not pronounce the name properly…

At the end of the book, you also get a small glossary containing definition about words encountered in the story.   For example, the moisture farm is define as a place where people collect water from the air.

The Level 1 Beginning To Read book from DK introduces simple sentences and limited vocabulary, a picture glossary as well as a simple index.   Adult participation might be necessary while your child reads these books.

My kids loves anything about Star Wars and this book is a blessing in disguise because anytime they want to learn more about Star Wars they will pick the book up. 

Star Wars Tatooine Adventures is available at your favorite bookstore, even at amazon.ca.
