I am not a particularly huge Star Wars fan, but have enjoyed the early movies in my younger days and enjoyed watching my both my boys live through the “Star Wars” phase, obsessing over the movies, Star Wars Lego, books and mini figures.

But I laughed out loud when I read through these two books, making connections not only to Star Wars, but to being a parent.  These two hilarious comic-like books by Jeffery Brown depict Darth Vader as a dad like any other.  He puts a fresh twist on many classic Star Wars moments, depicting “the trials and joys of parenting through the lens of a galaxy far, far away”.  Life lessons include light saber batting practice, using the Force to raid the cookie jar, Take Your Child to Work Day on the Death Star (“Er, he looks just like you, Lord Vader!”).

Two great read alouds for students as Father’s day approaches, but would also make great Father’s Day gifts for a few dads out there!
