Today is May 4th. What’s so special about that, you ask?
Susanna Leonard Hill has a feature on her blog called Perfect Picture Book Friday (PPBF). It is a list of “perfect” picture books recommended by all sorts of people. I chose this book because today is May 4th (International Star Wars Day) and it is a cool book.
Star Wars A B C
Author: Amazon has it listed as Scholastic and I don’t see anything about the author on/in the book *shrug*
26 pages (board book) – ages 2+
Publisher: Cartwheel Books on July 1, 2010
Theme/Topic – ABCs/Star Wars
Opening and Synopsis – This is the first page:
Feel the Force! Learning your ABCs has never been so exciting! In this ABC book readers will learn their ABCs while having a totally galactic adventure!
Why I liked this book – I love how they use actual pictures and scenes from the movies! From Yoda to Ewoks, from Vulture Droids to the Force, this book would be great for boys (and girls) and reluctant readers. I also like how this book is bigger (in size not page number) than most board books. I am also a HUGE Star Wars fan 😉 .
One more thing:
Activities and Resources –
I found Star Wars Coloring Pages HERE.
I made my own activity: You write the letters of the alphabet on index cards and spread them out on the floor or table. You say a letter of the alphabet and your child (equipped with a handy lightsaber that you can make out of a paper towel or wrapping paper tube) will “lightsaber” (or point to/tap/poke) the letter that you say.
