Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

This large-format alphabet board book contains movie stills and computer-generated images from the entire Star Wars franchise. Each capital letter mimics the accompanying image. For example, A (for Anakin) matches his blue lightsaber and the E (for Ewok) looks furry. Brief sentences use alliteration to further connect the letter to the subject ("Luke is a legendary Jedi") sometimes stretching to do so ("Zam is a zigzagging shapeshifter"). Still, the large and glossy images will be attention-grabbing for the youngest Star Wars fans. All ages.

Format: Board book
"Star Wars ABC" is educational and fun for the youngest of readers. The format is the most remarkable aspect of the title; this is a board book. The odds are with this book that it could survive a direct assault by a Star Destroyer . . . so there's little chance that the hands of a youngster will do any harm to the cardboard pages. As the title indicates, the book is a Star Wars themed alphabet book. The book runs from A to Z as each page features a new letter and a corresponding character, species, droid or starship. The chosen word is always used in a simple sentence like, "Yoda teachers young Jedi students" and "IG-88 is a dangerous droid." Detail was not lost on the creators as the featured letters are infused with visual elements that were drawn from the selected subjects. For example, the letter 'H' is wearing Han Solo's belt and the 'W' is as furry as the featured Wookiee. As a review, the back cover shows the entire alphabet. The scope covers the entire sage from Queen Amidala in Episode I to Episode VI's Ewoks. Perfect for youngsters, the pages are done in such a way that there are two textures. Each illustration is a blending of the regular page surface along with an area that's smooth and shiny. These dual textures invite touching. All in all, youngling readers will enjoy learning the galactic basic alphabet with "Star Wars ABC."

When reading books to my 15 month old son each night, this is a nice break from the typical board books. It is BIG, sturdy and has great pictures. My son enjoys having me read this book and I recommend it to any Star Wars fan who wants to introduce the Galaxy Far Far Away to their son or daughter.

My daughter is 3 and although she knew her alphabet very young, really knowing each letter took her awhile. She saw this book and had to have it. She nailed all of her letters almost instantly! 3 times through the book and she finally had it! I don't know WHY?! She's not into Star Wars. She's never seen it. She sees the stuff some of the boys in her preschool class are into it so maybe that peaked her interest. But she will now point to each letter and knows it perfectly. And she will tell you... B is for Boba Fett, Y is for Yoda, K is for the Kaminoans. It's hilarious. It totally worked for us.

I got this book for my 3 1/2 year old daughter. She loves Star Wars more specifically stormtroopers (a future 501st maybe? lol) The book was in better quality than I could have hoped: nice glossy pages, thick boards for each page, colors that really popped. My complaint is that they could have used the letters to represent more basic, "beginner" if you will, Star Wars things to introduce young fans. Of course parents will know most if not all the nouns representing each letter. Still a great book, especially for your little geeks just learning the alphabet.

I bought this for my infant daughter because my husband is obsessed with star wars. We had to get her a good start on learning about star wars. She smiles when I read it to her and really enjoys the pictures. It's made of heavy duty thick pages so it will last a long time. No worries about pages getting ripped. I also bought this and gave it to a friend as part of a baby shower gift but her 4 year old son took it for himself!

Gave this to my niece, and have no doubt it will teach her the ways of the force, turn her into a toddler padawan, and in no time she'll be putting on the blaster helmet and whipping out her pink lightsaber.

I love this book even though I bought this for my 3 year old. He along with my 6 and 11 year old love reading it together and even sing the alphabet song with it. Just a fun book for any Star Wars fan at any age!
