2017 Missouri Building Block Nominee: 10 Little Ninjas

Posted on Monday, December 4, 2017 by Josh

"Ten Little Ninjas" book cover10 Little Ninjas” takes the classic “5 Little Monkeys” formula and completely flips it on its head. Books like this are loads of fun; they feature just enough familiarity for kids to easily catch on, yet there is so much new content to discover. Sing along as Miranda Paul’s original rhymes flow across Nate Wragg’s playful illustrations!

As the book counts down, it displays unique themes that kids have always loved to role-play. Number eight in the countdown features kids in race cars: “8 rapid racers revving out the gate–one left late and couldn’t drive straight!” Flipping through the remaining pages reveals prowling tigers, rowdy cowboys and so many other children’s favorites. Kids will absolutely love to race, growl and lasso their way through the pages with you!

Once you have read at least five Missouri Building Block Picture Book Award nominees, help your child vote for their favorite.

After grade school I lost a little bit of passion for reading. In college, though, I found the library, and, in a lot of ways, the library found me! Now I read, discover, and imagine more often, and I’m healthier and happier for it.
