My six year old son is a huge Star Wars fan, and is also a beginner reader. I was optimistic that this book would indulge him and educate him at the same time, and I was correct! The book keeps him genuinely interested and focused. The words can be challenging, as many of them are fictional. Once he mastered it, he was thrilled with himself, and so was I!

My grandson who recently turned four, is really into Star Wars. He does not read quite yet but has asked for these little books to be read to him before bed so often that he has them memorized. So do we, his parents and grandparents! All the books in this series are equally good.

My daughter always enjoyed reading and Reader Books presented an excellent way to select books that were both interesting to her AND appropriate for her reading level. My son never enjoyed reading, so it has been a constant challenge to get him interested in any book at all. When the Star Wars Reader Books came out, we hit the jackpot. He loves Star Wars so much he reads the books before we've made it to the cash register, and then reads them over and over again! MORE STAR WARS READER BOOKS PLEASE

This book is great to add to any Star Wars Collection. I did feel that the Level was not accurate. My 5 1/2 year old son reads many level one and some level 2 books, but some of the words in this book definitely should belong in a Level 2 book, in my opinion. Great book otherwise

This is a cute book for young Star Wars fans who are beginning to read well. My Kindergartener did well with it and I think it would also be appropriate for ages 5-9. Great color photos to go along with the story.

C-3PO narrates and introduces us to some of the types of characters from the Star Wars films.So, the title is particularly misleading. Given the cover and title, one might get the idea that this is a clever take on a learning-about-animals photo-book. But instead of covering the habitat, behavior, lifestyle, or eating habits of wookies, the book instead sloppily splashes factoids about various aliens and specific characters from the franchise. But, kids who Star Wars fans will enjoy recognizing the characters from their pictures, though they'll already know everything in the text if they've seen the movies. Minus ten for including Jar Jar Binks. Good for grades K-2.
