This went an ocean away, so I did not get to read it myself, but the child who hates, HATES reading and writing was so inspired that he (1) got really excited about the book (2) demanded an immediate reading from the adult in the house, as he had already done his mandatory 20 minutes of reading for the day, and (3) was inspired to write a thank you note that read:
Thank you for the Way of the Ninja book. I really, really like it. Could you please send me more wayoftheninja books?

At this price, how could I refuse? I consider it a literary investment. Special thanks to Lego for having great readers and to Amazon for making them affordable to ship to Hawaii.
Update: He's 8 now, and reads without fighting about it. He reads to my 2-year-old niece voluntarily, and the two additional Lego Ninjago readers he got for his birthday were his favorite birthday gifts even though he got a lot of cool toys! I'm going to go ahead and declare victory, but if anyone knows of excellent products for reluctant writers, I'd love to hear them. (So far only Scribblenauts has encouraged a tiny bit of voluntary spelling/writing) He has completely caught up on reading in school (after being several years behind) and has made improvements in writing, but is still a bit behind.
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!
The series is incomplete and not even numbered, so it's impossible to follow the timeline. And what the hell is Ninjago anyway? A place? A way of life? Something you yell before you go into battle? You guessed it - all three.
Inexplicably, however, my five year-old twins (boy/girl) claim to love them. Even my daughter chooses them over Pinkalicious (I think she has a crush on Jay).
In short, you'll hate the books, but your kids might like them, so I suggest you buy them only if your kids can read them by themselves.

I was disappointed with the disrespectful speech in this book. It's not something I want to encourage with my son, so I threw the book away. We'll stick with Lego City.Published 6 months ago by Girl Wonder
