There are a lot of Star Wars dictionaries and encylopedias out there. Some of them are great and others, well, not so much. These are the best ones available right now. Grab a few of these and leave them out for your boy. He will really enjoy them!

Star Wars: The Force Awakens Visual Dictionary Oh boy! This one is hot off the press and features details, details and more details about the movie.

Next is an oldie, but a goodie: Star Wars: The Complete Visual Dictionary This is an excellent book that covers all of the Star Wars movies leading up to the current one. They say it “chronicles every character, weapon, starship, droid, creature, and alien in the Star Wars universe” and they are right!

Star Wars Character Encyclopedia has more than 200 character profiles in it. Each has one page with a large picture of the character and details including additional pictures.

Star Wars Cross-Section Books

We love cross-section books and so do the boys we know. Picture ships cut in two and you get to take a peak inside and see all of the details.

Star Wars: Complete Vehicles Cross-sections covers six Star Wars movies.

A bit more expensive, but it is four books in one, Star Wars Complete Cross-Sections: The Spacecraft and Vehicles of the Entire Star Wars Saga. 152 page hardcover, coffee table book with vehicles galore.

Here is a special one for the new movie: Star Wars: The Force Awakens Incredible Cross-Sections
