Kids, May the 4th Be With You

Growing up, I always celebrated on May 4 because it's my birthday. But did you know that everyone has a reason to celebrate on May 4? Stars Wars fans rejoice and tell each other "May the 4th be with you," a pun that pokes fun at the original phrase "may the force be with you." Honor the Jedi and the force with books and crafts that celebrate the Star Wars universe.
