Your Star Wars Fan Will Want This Book

Back in May, I showed off a massive Marvel visual encyclopedia. I live with two superheroes, so that book was a big hit. Seriously, I live with superheroes.

DK Publishing has an equally epic Star Wars version. This book would make a great Christmas gift, so keep it in mind when you start shopping. The book is called Star Wars Year by Year: A Visual Chronicle because it chronicles every year from 1973 to 2012, when it was published.  It is so jammed packed with history, Star Wars and non-Star Wars, that we’ve had this book for 2 months now and my guys are still not done reading it.

When the book arrived in the mail, I actually wrapped it up in this cute shirt that I had just made my son that day. A Stormtrooper, Boba Fett, Yoda, and Darth Vader – offset by their little LEGO counterparts.

The 328-page hardback book comes in a thick sturdy case that easily slides off.

Star Wars : Would You Rather?

a booklet full of fun Star Wars themed questions for kids

Table of contents – beginning with Life Before Star Wars and ending with the Clone Wars and Beyond. I am sure this book will eventually be updated to include the upcoming sequels. It takes you on a month by month, year by year, very detailed journey through the history of Star Wars.

This is one of my son’s favorite pages in the book. He loves light sabers.
