Star Wars for the next generation! Scholastic has been bringing out a lot of different books from Lego Star Wars, Star Wars activity books and now Star Wars Phonics. I was not sure what to expect when getting this boxed set but it far, far exceeded my expectations.

The Books are:
Book 1 - Meet Anakin - short a
Book 2 - Friends to the End - short e
Book 3 - Jar Jar's Trip - short i
Book 4 - Here Come the Ewoks - short o
Book 5 - How to Be a Jedi - short u
Book 6 - Chase on Endor - long a
Book 7 - Meet Han Solo - long e
Book 8 - Hide Out - long i
Book 9 - Here Come the Clones - long o
Book 10Use the Force, Luke! - long u
Workbook 1 - Short Vowel Sounds
Workbook 2 - Long Vowel Sounds

With a focus of between 5 and 12 key words per book, with repetitions, these books give a lot of practice and will help develop reading skills. Most of the books have full color photo screen shots from the movies on every page and a small white bar on the bottom of the page for the text in a nice large font. The key words for the book are bold print to make them stick out. It was fun just reading through the books and going down memory lane of the movies even as an adult. There is a stronger focus on the original three movies which is awesome.

This box set will be a great tool for parents helping their kids, or in the classroom.
