Did you know that December 5th was National Ninja Day? I didn’t know either until I stumbled upon the #NationalNinjaDay hashtag on Twitter! What fun!

So even though I am a day late on celebrating this “stealthy” event, I think we all need to tap into our “inner ninja” and do some ninja-related reading and activities! Luckily, Corey Rosen Schwartz has some amazing activities, book suggestions and in her free National Ninja Day PDF.

Corey has two delightful ninja-ish books to her credit including the upcoming Hensel and Gretel Ninja Chicks

Did you do something fun for National Ninja Day? Or did it “sneak” up on you? 😉

Note from Me: As the holiday season approaches, consider adding the gift of books to your shopping list. There are many wonderful booklists available for parents looking to give their child the gift of reading and adventure. A book makes a great gift because they are meaningful, beautiful, portable, appealing, and inexpensive and it’s a gift that can be opened again and again. Books are the perfect gift for any age and a gift that doesn’t require batteries or sizing instruction!

If you would like to get started on your family reading adventure, or would just like to add to your family bookshelf, Audrey Press has some special deals on their catalog of books to get readers and gift-givers on their merry way. From November 30th to December 15th, give the gift of reading, adventure and education at extra-special (and extended) Black Friday prices! Go here for the full scoop on the Holiday Book Love Sale!
