Ninjago, ninjago, ninjago... That seems to be all I hear about from my 6 year old grandson these days. The world stops when a new Ninjago show is on TV, and he watches those same shows over and over again. Of course, we have to have the Ninjago minifigures and the Ninjago Lego sets. I'm waiting for the Lego Ninjago video game to come out, of course!
So how do you turn an all-encompassing passion into something at least slightly educational? A book! I was so happy when I saw these early readers!
I purchased Book #1 and #2 for my grandson's birthday (the big 6), and at first, he wasn't too enthused. But when it came to bedtime and I pulled out the new books, and we cuddled and read together - he was much more excited. And I can already see him sitting down by himself to read through the books on his own.
The books are geared towards first through third grade readers, I believe, and the story line runs hand in hand with the TV shows of the same name. My grandson is in Kindergarten, so some words are out of his reach, but because he is such a Ninjago fan, he worked at figuring out and sounding out the words he didn't know. Success!
If you have a little Ninjago fan in your house, don't hesitate with these books. It's nice to slide in an educational opportunity without the child fully realizing that's what you're doing... and you might just create a love of reading that he will have for his entire life. Here's hoping!
Bought for our 10 year old grandson who is a Lego-Ninjago nut. A good addition to his collection. He loves to show me all of the characters and tell me about their personalities and abilities -- even if I can't ever keep them straight.
if you are looking to get your little boy into reading - these are great! Reading level is around middle/end first grade ( reading alone) - about half the page is text in large print - the rest pictures- there are some more complicated words to decode but most can be read alone. There are few books on the market that are geared towards boys in this reading level ( for those that are not quite ready for chapter books but beyond the 2 sentence a page beginner readers). These contain small chapters only a few pages long. My own son loves them and begs for more reading time in the evenings- we have the entire series and once we make it all the way through we will be ready to step up to the chapter book series.
