Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Annie Laura Smith
Historically, ninjas have been brave, skilled Japanese warriors who have carried out dangerous missions from ancient times to today. They are covert agents who are trained in the martial arts. A contents page defines the scope of the information from "Shadow Attack!" to "Ninja Missions." Vibrant, full-color images support the text. Sidebars throughout the text highlight factual information. A timeline of "Important Dates and Battles" spans 940 to 1853. Information in "Stop and Think" allows readers to reflect on what they have learned about ninjas. Students are encouraged to write an essay about what their life would be like as a ninja in Japan in the 1500s. A glossary defines relevant terms. "Learn More" lists books and web links for more information. An index provides easy navigation through the text. This book is part of Core Library, an imprint of ABDO Publishing which supports the common Core State Standards for grades 3-6 with nonfiction books. Other books in this "Great Warriors" series include: Gladiators, Green Berets, Knights, Navy SEALS, Samurai, Spartans, and Vikings. These high interest books will allow young readers to learn about history's great warriors with multiple prompts for writing, reading, and critical thinking. Free additional tools for teachers and students are available on the website, www.mycorelibrary.com. Reviewer: Annie Laura Smith
