4.0 out of 5 stars R2D2 reader book 22 Mar 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
My kids are absolutely crazy about star wars, so this book was always going to be a hit. It's a level 2 reader, so the text is reasonably simple, but easy facts and story included. There's also lots of pictures so even my younger ones like looking at this book time and time again! Great buy!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great for 6 yr olds 13 April 2011
This book is great for little boys (6yr olds) who are very active and not necessarily good at sitting still for quiet activities like reading (especially if the readers they are given at school are boring to them). If your son is into star wars or equivalent this will help to get his attention long enough to sit and read. Good for emerging readers - some of the words are a bit strange so he will need help, but he will want to do it on his own!

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
George - aged 6: R2D2 is a kind of droid. He has loads of machines and secret weapons in his body. His friend is a golden droid and is called C3PO. They explore the galaxy together and R2D2 has a brother that looks just like him except has a different light. Also you can find out some more if you read it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good book arrived damaged 30 July 2013

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
My son loves it and reads it to death.
Cover was torn, but for the cost and Argo we just kept it.
For reading development, the subject helps engage my son, thus improve his reading.
