    Both Aiden and Owen love this book. We have read it several times since it arrived and I have been excited to hear both boys read it to me. Aiden was able to read most of it on his own and Owen needed some help the first few times but it getting more proficient each time. I love the DK Readers series because it is so perfectly age-appropriate. The levels make it easy to choose the right books for your child. And of course the Star Wars theme certainly helps in our house! The boys have been delighted to teach me all about their favourite movies and I have enjoyed hearing their excitement.

    DK Canada has loads of different topics in this series- everything from farm life and being a ballerina to animals and super heroes. No matter what your child's interest area there is sure to be a book for them! The pictures are always bright and colourful and the storylines are interesting too so even the most reluctant reader can be drawn in. I would definitely recommend the DK Readers series.
