The Scholastic Store is hosting a Stars Wars event on Saturday, October 23 from 1-5pm. Kids of all ages (and their parents) can hang out with Star Wars Storm Troopers and maybe even a member of the Droid Detachment! There will be classes for young paduwans and a chance to win a copy of the new book, Millennium Falcon.

Scholastic Store has some pretty awesome events coming up and usually they’re free, check the calendar here. While not everyone can make it to the store Saturday for this awesome party – Scholastic is blasting off with a rad giveaway for anyone in the US to win.

I’ve been reading these books (well not Millennium Falcon I’ve put that away since its pretty awesome and sooo not a toddler book, and I really like it myself.) to my kiddo. Its great to connect to something so Daddy – I grew up on Star Wars having an alphabet book that could use the word Droid is pretty cool!

Star Wars: ABC

Star Wars: ABC is an alphabetical adventure through the imaginative and intergalactic world of Star Wars featuring the names and images of the most popular characters, droids, spaceships, and creatures in this galaxy far, far away. Ages 0+, $12.99.


A perfect introduction to the Star Wars universe, this board book features the names and images of the most iconic spaceships coupled with simple text, as the Millennium Falcon, TIE Fighters, and X-Wings blast across outer space.

The Force is strong with this book.  Ages 4+, $7.99.
