Scholastic books this school holiday

This school holiday how do you spend time with your family?
One of the bonding time I have with my children will be reading time.
These are all the Scholastic books for my children to read. My sons are 9 years old and 4 years old.
What children do this school holiday? I know they will be interested to play games and watch movies. I also prefer them to read books during free time.  

Some books info to share with you as I have ten books of Scholastic books. 
Below is the list of books with its description. 

The Very Hungry Bear, author by Nick Bland.
 The Bear we all fell in love with in The Very Cranky Bear and The Very Itchy Bear is just as delightful as always — and much less cranky with the promise of food on the horizon! This new story features the same bold, clever illustrations and catchy rhyming text that made Nick Bland's first two Bear books instant favourites. Told with his characteristic humour and wit, The Very Hungry Bear is both an endearing tale of friendship and a subtle, yet important, reminder, about preserving our environment. 
This book is suitable for children 3 years old to 7 years old, last year my eldest son read The Very Brave Bear

Star Wars (Jedi Apprentice #3: The Hidden Past) , the Author by Jude Watson.
 Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan are officially Master and Padawan. On their first mission together to oversee the elections on Gala, things do not go as planned. The two find themselves helping to rid a planet of an evil Syndicate which plans to destroy the local people. Jump in to the most recent addition of this successful Star Wars series.
