WHO SAVED THE GALAXY is at the beginning 4th Grade reading level. The book has 491 words in a font that is, in my opinion, too large for 4th Graders.

All the favorite good guys are covered in the book. Young Anakin, older Anakin. Obi-Wan, Luke, Leia, CPO.... That's about all you've got here are brief summaries with pictures from the movies.

I've read quite a few of these little books and this material is covered dozens of other places. Which isn't to say that kids won't pick this book up and read it; only that it's mediocre, at best.

I would recommend this book for young readers who are reading way above their age level. For them the material might be fresh. ( )

Who saved the galaxy? Many characters were involved. This little book relates who these people were, humans and aliens, and what they did to help save the galaxy. This is a fun summary of the key events in the Star Wars saga, and at the end of the book, instead of the usual quiz or glossary, they ask this open question again: "Who saved the galaxy?"

Some people have complained that these popular DK readers on Star Wars are too hard, and I can second that they are not for absolute beginners or maybe even the average kindergartener. They are not heavy on sight words and they, by the nature of the subject, contain a number of rather tricky spellings. I sit with my little one when he reads through these and help him a little when he gets stuck on one of those tongue twisters. But they soon pick up words like "empirial", "creatures", "smuggling", "merchant" and names such as "Tattooine" and "Alderaan" are often phonetically spelled out, to help the emerging reader. My guess would however be that most of both the level one and level two books are of 2nd grade reading level. ( )
