Star Wars Reads Day in October

On October 10, 2015 it will be once again the Star Wars Reads Day.   To celebrate this amazing day which encourages your children to read Star Wars books, DK Canada has released a special Star Wars Boutique where you can select numerous titles about Star Wars for your kids, for your loved one or for yourself…

The Star Wars Boutique of DK Canada is packed with books related to Star Wars like the readers, the Lego Star Wars, the complete visual dictionaries, the encyclopedias, and much more.    There are so many titles available for the fan of Star Wars that you might be overwhelmed with the choice.

For the purpose of this blog post, I have received two titles to review.

The book contains detailed drawings of the vehicles from the Star Wars movies.  It is a gem to see the way these vehicles are designed and how they work.   The book is perfect for the person with an engineering head who would love to decorticate a vehicle in order to better understand it.   

91BjQ1rDmSLUltimate Star Wars

Ultimate Star Wars® is an in-depth visual feast exploring the characters and storylines from the Star Wars galaxy. This is a beautifully illustrated guide that is structured chronologically and packed full of information about key characters and storylines from the Star Wars movie saga, The Clone Wars, and Rebels™. Ultimate Star Wars will get new and old fans caught up and knowledgeable on all things Star Wars.

This book is definitively perfect for the fan of Star Wars who would love to get more details on the characters, storylines, and much more.   To be honest, I think it is a great book for kids who are getting introduce to the Star Wars world and want to learn more about it.  It is a great book to develop the knowledge on the world of Star Wars whether you are a child or an adult.   When my kids started to read more about Star Wars in the various books we have at home, it wouldn’t be long before they started sharing their new knowledge at the dining table.  Sometimes my husband would react saying no that can’t be and then they would prove it to their dad.   It was priceless…

The book is packed with information and stunning images of the movies.    It would be a great book to refer to as you watch and re-watch the movies with your family.
