Learning the Alphabet with Star Wars

What better way to learn your ABCs than by having a beautifully illustrated Star Wars book to help? Every penny of your book donation will go to the college fund of the author’s child. If I ever have kids, they will totally be learning all about Star Wars, and maybe they will even learn the alphabet.

A is for Ackbar is a collaborative effort by Brandon and his wife Emma. While she was pregnant with their first child, they wanted to come up with an artistic way to decorate their son’s nursery. Being huge Star Wars fans AND artists, they came up with something pretty unique. Thus, the book was born.

Brandon sketched the artwork and Emma colored them in using Illustrator. This team effort turned into something that neither ever expected. In December, they held a “donation drive” to help kickstart their son’s college education fund. They were so overwhelmed by demand that they had to close down the drive a little early – well ahead of their goal.

Keep your eyes on the site in the coming months to find out how you can get a copy for yourself. This is something that will add nicely to any Star Wars collection. I’m not so sure how well it will stand up to real kids, though.
