Train your younglings in the ways of The Force with Star Wars Epic Yarns!

Star Wars did a job on my generation. It hooked us early – I was 6 when I first saw Darth Vader shake Captain Antilles like a rag doll and demand where the stolen plans were – and sent us on a lifelong quest to infuse our lives whenever, wherever, and however possible, with all things Long Ago and Far Away. Now, we’re raising our kids with Star Wars, and I couldn’t be happier. My little guy has had his copies of Star Wars 123 and Star Wars ABC since infancy, and next on the list will be these three adorable board books that teach exciting new words and introduce readers to the greatest trilogy in the galaxy.

Each book in the Star Wars Epic Yarns series covers a movie in the original Star Wars trilogy, using words kids will be familiar with (“princess”, “boy”, “heroes”) with new words that can only enhance a youngling’s vocabulary (“Force”, “droids”, “lightsaber”). The books are board books, so they’re tough and ready to be held by little hands (and possibly gnawed on by little teethers).

Jack and Holman Wang have put a mind-blowing amount of work into these books. Created with figures made of needle-felted yarn and set against movie-esque backdrops, these pictures are gorgeous. This is a tremendous level of artistry that leaves me shaking my head in wonder. They capture the trilogy’s heart and soul in 36 words and images. I foresee many, many cuddly storytimes ahead with these books in hand.
