I am a Pilot Reviews
I love Poe Dameron. I love Han Solo. I got way too emotional when I saw the picture of old Han Solo. I love Chewbacca. But WHERE IS REY? Why is the only woman in this entire book Queen Amidala being escorted onto a ship? Not that I don't love Padmé, but really?
Ugh. Seriously? Again? Still?This is a little kids' book about the talented and passionate pilots of the star Wars universe- ALL movies. So... Where's Rey? Why are there ZERO females in this new line up of Star Wars themed Little Golden Books?(At least, the ones I've seen: this one and "I am a Jedi" and "I am a Droid", which yes, contains many images of humans in addition to droids but has just one little Leia standing placidly in a group of white men on the last page; I haven't read the "I am a Princess one" about Leia yet, but already the name is an odd choice- why not call it something like "I am a leader" or "I am a Rebel", and use the many titles she's referred by, such as princess and general, in the story?)Okay, fine, there's that one woman half-way through the story... who is being handed up a ship by a male pilot with accompanying text about "pilots flying queens". Because, obviously, ladies can't fly and walking up a ramp is hard, and females are special prize cargo for men's pride.Seriously, I really like Star Wars, but the more you keep pushing girls and women out, the more will choose to walk out. And that's not a good thing- for anybody.I mean, really, what goes through these peoples' heads when they make these products?? It would be SO EASY to do it right.
The Disney machine is in full force to create a new generation of Star Wars fans. Little Golden books has a several books geared to introducing little ones to the space opera. The books are super simple and easy to read. It's a cute series, it should make adults who are fans appreciate the nostalgia of being young and discovering Star Wars.
You guys, this book is bad. Don’t let all of the shiny spaceships (ahem, Millennium Falcon, mmmm), and awesome pilots (HAN SOLO AND POE DAMERON) distract you from the problems. Full review here: http://yepireadthat.tumblr.com/post/1...
The author spelled Nien Nunb's name wrong, you know, that weird looking Sullustan that was with Lando Calrissian when they attacked the Death Star in the Millenium Falcon? The author spelled it Nien NUMB. Oh well, it's still a cute story about the different pilots in the Star Wars universe that my son enjoys.
Our first grader read this book with little help. He's getting better & better. He loves reading this book.
Originally posted at You Have Your Hands FullAll three of my girls love Star Wars, but one of my 6.5-year-old twins really likes Star Wars. She has several Star Wars books, and when I saw I Am A Pilot at our town library, I brought it home for her. I Am A Pilot is one of three Little Golden Books in a semi-connected series. The other two titles in the series are: I Am A Droid, and I Am A Jedi. I Am A Pilot introduces children to various pilots in the Star Wars universe, and discusses their attributes. “Some pilots are young. Some pilots have been flying for ages. Some pilots are clones. And some pilots are droids.”There isn’t really anything resembling a plot, but that didn’t seem to bother my daughter. She enjoyed looking at the pictures. The illustrations are rendered in a fun cartoony style. Little Golden Books has done this with all of their recent Star Wars books. My daughter loved seeing all of her favorites, including Poe Dameron and BB-8 from The Force Awakens. I would recommend I Am A Pilot, but with the caveat that this is more of an informational book than a storybook, and that it is geared toward children in preschool and the early years of elementary school. My daughter loved seeing all the different starships as well.
A fun gift for my son. I read it to him first and now he is reading it like a champ. Great for a beginning reader (level 1 or 2). My son is an avid Star Wars fan so beginning books like these are great to help nurture a love of reading.
Poe Fucking Dameron.
A really enjoyable Little Golden book all about the different pilots in the Star Wars universe. Beautiful illustrations and great descriptions, easy for any interested reader.
