Hannah Reads: Star Wars

2Welcome to Hannah Reads, wherein our resident 10-year-old talks about books and the literary life.

From Hannah:

star warsDo you like Star Wars? If so, you simply must read Star Wars: Absolutely Everything You Need To Know. It’s fantastic! I learned so much!

For example, did you know:

  • Yarael Poof has TWO brains–one in his head and the other in his chest!
  • “Koh-to-yah” means “greetings” in Keldor, which is the language of Plo Koon’s people!
  • The sound you hear when Princess Leia, Han, and Chewbacca are inside the space slug in Empire Strikes Back was made with melted cheese!

Until I read this book, I had no idea! The book also has cool peek behind the scenes sections, which tell you about the making of the movies–including the new movie, The Force Awakens.

At first, my brother thought this was a book for boys only, but it’s not! Girls will find a lot to like about it too. Usually movies with lots of fighting are considered “boy movies,” but the Star Wars movies also have resourceful girl characters and have adventures both boys and girls find interesting. Star Wars: Absolutely Everything You Need To Know focuses on each character and gives details about the spacecraft and stories that boys and girls will like.

Even if you are not a Star Wars fan, you can still read Star Wars: Absolutely Everything You Need To Know, although I suggest you watch the movies first. The quality of the illustrations is excellent, the details about technology are awesome, and knowing about the characters on both sides may give more insight into the movies so you could learn to enjoy the movies more.

Hannah’s questions for kids (and adults!): What’s your favorite book about Star Wars? Which Star Wars movie is your favorite?
