Pokemon, Ninjago, Bakugan, Beyblade No, I am not writing in a different language, these are all subjects of Official Guides we sell at The Scholastic Store. These books are really an interesting hybrid. They are fiction but in the format of a non-fiction book. The cool thing, though, is that some of the most reluctant readers DEVOUR them! The subject matter is high interest and there can be some sophisticated reading inside. There are character descriptions, backstories and even pronunciation guides. (This comes in handy when you have to say Spinjitsu three times fast!) While kids are learning those interesting facts about special powers, alliances and scary villains, they are also picking up reading skills so there can be a win all around! The newest guide we have is LEGO Legends of Chima Origins: A Starter Handbook. Its an introduction to LEGOs newest world, Chima. Like Ninjago, its full of action and magic. In Chima, there are tribes of animals vying for control of Chima and the mysterious force called CHI. This Saturday at 3pm, The Scholastic Store is celebrating the release of this book with a screening of two Legends of Chima episodes followed by LEGO building contests and of course, trivia from the book!
