Baby Book Basics

I recently received a request for my list of must-have baby books and I had to get these online for you asap. No baby should be without these classic board books. Yes, board books. I love these.

Star Wars Books for Kids

I’m not done celebrating Star Wars day just yet so I’m sharing my favorite Star Wars books for kids. Star Wars isn’t just about toys and action figures… it’s a great story with fun characters, and you can start sharing your love of both with your children from day one!

Star Wars Books

Star Wars ABC– $11
This is a great larger scale board book with your favorite as well as some lesser known characters and rhymes from A to Z. There’s also a 123 and a Colors book to make it a collection.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens (Little Golden Book)– $4
There’s a book for every movie and I love the way these are illustrated!

Star Wars: A Scanimation Book– $12
The scanimation books are amazing and when you pair the moving pictures with your favorite Star Wars scenes, this will be a book you open and close and open and close again and again– trust me!

Darth Vader and Son– $10
The first of the Star Wars picture books by Jeffrey Brown is an hilarious look at what would happen if Luke had spent his childhood with his father.

Lego Star Wars Character Encyclopedia– $14
You will not believe how extensive the Star Wars Lego universe is, but you can use a volume like this to get started. The book comes with a Lego minifigure so it’s for older kids.

Star Wars ABC-3PO Alphabet Book– $10
The Star Wars characters from A to Z are illustrated as cute as can be! by Calliope Glass (Author), Katie Cook (Illustrator, Cover Design)

Star Wars Epic Yarns: A New Hope– $8
The first in a series of books by Jack Wang, the Star Wars story is told in needle-felted scenes. The kids will love the photos and you’ll be amazed by the art and effort that went into it.

Star Wars: A New Hope: The Princess, the Scoundrel, and the Farm Boy– $11
The first novel of the trilogy, these tell the story of your favorite Star Wars movies in a whole new way. For kids grades 3 and up, my 4th grade Star Wars fan highly recommends this series and I love how the black covers look on his bookshelf.

Trilogy Box Set (Star Wars: Jedi Academy)– $25
I love a box set because if you enjoy the first book, you’re just going to want to read them all anyway. The Jedi Academy series by Jeffrey Brown is another great option for older elementary and middle school aged children. We have them all!

Star Wars: A Pop-Up Guide to the Galaxy– $21
This title is part of my personal collection– meaning not for the kids. One of many incredible pop-up books by Matthew Reinhart, this is a title you’ll enjoy sharing with the kids, but it’s too incredible to just give to younger children who may accidentally tear it.
