Star Wars: Search Your Feelings Book Review


“Search Your Feelings” is a superb “Star Wars” book for kids.

In the “Star Wars: Search Your Feelings” book (the Galactic Basic Edition), writers Calliope Glass and Caitlin Kennedy take readers on a rhyming adventure that explores various emotions that “Star Wars” characters have had at certain points in episodes 1 through 8. The set-up of the book is this- there’s an emotional word at the top of the page followed by a story about a particular character that ties into that world. For example, the word “Calm” has a story about Yoda’s state of mind as he raises the X-Wing out of the Dagobah swamp. Many characters have their own stories here including Anakin, R2-D2, Kylo Ren, Rey, Leia and so on.

“Star Wars: Search Your Feelings” is the type of children’s book that there needs to be more of. Sure, there are character stories and sometimes charming recounts of moments from the saga, but the most important thing about this book is that it’s educational. Calliope Glass and Caitlin Kennedy genuinely teach children about various emotions while relating them to characters from the “Star Wars” films. It’s a very simple concept and it works like a charm. There’s even a section at the end of the book that includes a full listing of the emotions touched upon here so that the young readers can convey how they are feeling themselves.

Since this is a children’s book, there are obviously pictures within these pages. Artist Katie Cook provides cartoony and kid friendly images that depict characters and scenes from the films. They are very exaggerated but vivid images that perfectly accompany the writing.
