Every Saturday, I host a feature called Kid Konnection -- a regular weekend feature about anything related to children's books. This week, I'm going to share with you a set of adorable (and very creative) board books for little ones.

Oh my goodness! I just received some of the cutest picture books I've ever laid eyes on! There are the STAR WARS EPIC YARN books by Jack and Holman Wang, and these board books are designed for the smallest Star Wars fans.
There are three books titled A NEW HOPE, THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK, and RETURN OF THE JEDI, and all of them are just precious. Each hardcover book has sturdy pages and very simple text which introduces these original Star Wars stories and characters to little ones. In fact, each book features 12 famous scenes from the movie with one word summaries.
As cute as these books are, what really sets them apart is the artwork. Each character is made entirely by hand by using felt. I don't think you can get this from the covers of the books, but the characters are incredibly detailed from their uniforms to their faces. I am truly blown away by how creative these figures are!
The STAR WARS EPIC YARN series is too cute! Parents and little ones will appreciated these books that pay tribute the three Star Wars films that started it all. Highly recommended!
Thanks to the publisher for providing review copies of these books.
