Hello all. Since the trailers for Episode VII started coming out, my son who is 8 has recently been getting into Star Wars. We’ve watched all the movies and today went to see episode VII. He has been asking me a lot of how certain characters came about. Some of these questions I can answer, but some I have no idea. I grew up watching Star Wars but never really got into the books and the whole story line. Now that he is old enough, and asking questions, I’d like to try to answer them for him. Are there any books out there that I can read up on and try to answer his questions? Seems when I google stuff, there are lots of series that goes down different paths. I’d like to try to stay with what the movies are based off of or related to for now, then maybe go down those roads. Also, are there some age appropriate books for him? He is 8 (3rd Grade) but reads a bit higher in the 4th to 5th grade level.
Thanks all for the help!!
