Star Wars Reads Day 2014 | A Disney Mom's Thoughts

Heads up!  For those of you who don't know, Saturday, October 11 is Star Wars Reads Day!  What is Star Wars Reads Day?  "Star Wars Reads Day is an international event that celebrates reading and Star Wars. It was launched in 2012 by Lucasfilm and its publishing partners — Abrams, Chronicle Books, Dark Horse, Del Rey, DK Publishing, Klutz, Random House Audio, Scholastic, and Workman Publishing. Last year, Quirk Books joined the fun, and we’re excited to have Disney Book Group participate this year." From the official Star Wars Day FAQ Page.

I was thrilled to find out that our local  Books A Million store would be celebrating Star Wars Reads Day on Saturday from 2-4! Yes, we will be participating.  You can find out if you have a participating location near you on this map.

If you are a teacher or are interested in doing your own Star Wars Reads Day at home, you can download the Activity Kit here which is full of book ideas, crafts, coloring & drawing pages, and games & puzzles.  I think we'll try to do some of these activities on our own later in the year.  These would be great to do in conjunction with a Star Wars Party or a Star Wars movie night!

Will you be participating in Star Wars Reads Day?
