Never. Give. Up.
Reviewed in the United States on February 17, 2020
My three year old and I are in love with this series. When we flipped to the back cover of Perfect Ninja, and I asked him which we should get next, he homed right in on Gritty Ninja.
Sadly, it wasn't published yet and I told him we would have to wait for the author to write it.
So I was super excited when, just days later (today), I received an email offering a free download of the e-book!
Gritty Ninja does not disappoint, and is just the message of grit--what we called "stick-to-it-tiv-ity" when I was a kid--that I've been working to instill in my curious little explorer.
Ms. Nhin's "four C's" create an easy-to-understand tool to help kids face down the anxieties and frustrations that go with doing hard things and risking failure.
I suspect that at not quite four years old, my son is at the younger end of the age range for this series. Along with thoughtfully guiding kids through challenging life topics, the author doesn't shy away from rich vocabulary, which I consider an added bonus of these books.
I can't wait to read the hard copy with my son when it arrives!
