My son loves Star Wars, hates to read. This series has been great for him. Of course, I've learned all about being a Jedi, the different Star Wars planes, etc while he has been reading to me, but anything that has him coming to me and asking to read is worth it and gets 4-5 stars in my book.

Format: Paperback
The release of Star Wars books for young people has always been related to a theatrical promotion. In a world that has a seen all six films, a new wave of DK Readers is much appreciated. It gives us comfort that even though the movies are finished, the Star Wars experience isn't completely 'done.' As the title suggests, "I Want To Be A Jedi" is a look into the Jedi Order. Jedi training, powers, lighsabers, the Council, mind tricks and equipment are all described. Beyond discussing the Jedi way in broad terms, focus is placed on Anakin Skywalker. "I Want To Be A Jedi" looks at Anakin's relationship with the Order, Padmé Amidala and Darth Sidious. A discussion of the Jedi and Anakin would be incomplete without mentioning the Sith. Darth Sidious, General Grievous and the Clone Wars are connected to the demise of the Jedi Order. While the content is suspiciously similar to "I Am a Jedi" and "I Am a Jedi Apprentice," the scope is more satisfying since it pulls together all six chapters of the saga. So while there's nothing new here, this is a great read for young fans that are still making the connections between the six acts. A glossary and index is included. In terms of the illustrations, the vast majority were lifted from the films. While the pictures are high quality, the writing is also good. This new series has books for most levels of elementary readers. Given the 48 page length and vocabulary level, this title is best suited to readers on a fourth or fifth grade level. "I Want To Be A Jedi" offers an exciting look at the Jedi Order.

My four year old grandson is big into Star Wars and he loves this book. Too many words for him to try to read, but loves having it read to him -- over and over and over again!

We all need to understand the Force.

Although that goes without saying, this books shares with children and youth the basic concepts of the Force and the heritage and instruction of the Jedi Order.

I am a die-hard fan of the Star Wars Saga, and many times I see where elements of the Saga apply to everyday life.

Ben Obi-Wan said it best: "The Force will be with you, always."

I purchased this book for my grandson's 7th birthday. He took the book to read immediately and was reading it over and over. He liked that the book had the pronounciation of the names of the "Star Wars" characters and he shared that infomation with his older sisters. The cover and the title appeals to his age and interests. He loved that he could read it himself.

Book was well received by a friend's son for his 6th bday. Since he had a Star Wars Birthday this book was my 1st choice along with some Star Wars legos. Always great to have the 2 day Amazon Prime. Can buy a gift Tue or Wed during the week for a Saturday party and have it delivered before the party with time to wrap it and be ready to go!

I read this series of books to my 3 year old nephew. I love them because I am not a Star Wars person but hated not knowing the answers to his questions about it. These books seem to cover everything. Be warned, bedtime readers - these little books are deceptively long!
