May The Fourth Be With You 2012 – DK Canada

by MARIA on May 4, 2012

MAY THE FOURTH BE WITH YOU!

I know I’ve mentioned this on my blog before but as a family, we love Star Wars.

We dress up, we take pics, we make movies – it amuses us greatly.

We also have a TON of Star Wars books, because my eight year old son loves them.

I LOVE DK Canada because they have the BEST selection of Star Wars books available.

I wrote about their May the Fourth promotion last year as well, to support DK Canada and they raised hundreds of dollars for Frontier College’s literacy programs in Canada. WIN.

This year, DK Canada is working with Indigo and Chapters bookstores to bring the May the Fourth fun to their retail stores. A portion of the proceeds of all DK Star Wars books sold over this coming  May 4th weekend (May 4,5,6) at all Chapters and Indigo stores nationwide, will be donated to Indigo’s Love of Reading program (which has already raised over $10 million dollars for Canadian schools in need). The more books sold, the more money will go to help put books in schools for kids to read. To celebrate, select Indigo and Chapters stores will have special May the 4th Star Wars themed celebrations, so please go to your local Indigo or Chapters and help support the Love of Reading program and have some Star Wars fun today!!

If you need some help picking out a great DK Canada Star Wars title, you might want to check out the Star Wars The Complete Visual Dictionary!

 This fab book features all of the characters from the entire Star Wars saga – so all six movies are included. Over 250 pages of amazing diagrams, costume details, creatures, and equipment and weapons are all in there. The book is full of gorgeous photos and cool facts that have kept my son amused for hours. This book is a great addition to his Star Wars book collection – it retails for $45 but right now, there is a great 30% off sale on the DK Canada site on all the Star Wars titles!
Also, DK Canada is having their May the 4th Be With You Photo Contest again this year!! Take a photo of you, your kids or friends enjoying a Star Wars book, enter the contest and you could win big! The winner will win a DK Canada Star Wars Collection worth over $200 and a full set of Star Wars DK Readers will be donated to a Canadian school or library of your choice!

Seriously, it’s A GREAT CONTEST!

Don’t forget to enter!!

“Do or do not. There is no try.”  Yoda is way smart. Listen to him, enter and go out and support a great cause like the Love of Reading program!

Have a great day!
