Looking for a fun book series for boys that will keep them reading?
The Origami Yoda Files is a favorite for middle grade boys.
Origami Yoda Files are Books Boys Love
The Origami Yoda Files is hands-down my 10 year old son’s favorite book series this year. He has devoured these books and was sad to read to the end of it. But he’s convinced there’s more in the making based on how the books end, hinting there may be more on the way.
Tom Angleberger is a genius–seriously.
Not only is the story line the perfect idea for middle grade boys, but the books include hands-on activities where they can try their own paper folding to create the characters using origami.
Even better, it’s based on Star Wars where the reader can then create favorite Star Wars characters by folding paper after reading the book.
The idea is absolutely brilliant. And my son has now collected and read every book in the set. He’s also created all sorts of origami Star Wars people we now have scattered all over the house–don’t say I didn’t warn you.
There are several books in the series, so you may want to try just one in the set first:
Here are a few other books that have been added to the series, too:
If you’re looking for gift ideas for Christmas or birthdays, an Origami Yoda book is perfect for middle grade boys. Here’s another book I discovered at the bookstore the other day. It’s not a part of the Origami Yoda Files series, but it looks like one my son would enjoy.
