Read Like a Ninja

Read Like a Ninja, our Winter Reading Program is just days away!! We cannot contain our excitement!  The program runs from December 1 through January 31.  Any child birth through 5th grade can participate in the program.  All you have to do is read 9 hours (or 540 minutes).  Easy peasy, lemon squeezy! Miss Stephanie will be making trips to many of the local schools to invite students to participate in the program. 

Prizes are given away for every 3 hours you read.  Just stop by the Youth Services desk to sign up and receive your recording sheet to take home and begin reading.  Every time you come to the library and check in your reading minutes with us, you are entered into a drawing to win an extra prize at the end of winter reading.

There are plenty of good books about ninjas. Here are just a few!

Ninja! by Aree Chung tells about how ninjas must be strong, courageous, and most importantly - quiet, which is not always a quality a young ninja exhibits.  This ninja is on a secret mission.  As he creeps through the house, he may encounter some obstacles that may be harmful to completing his mission.

Ninja Red Riding Hood by Corey Rosen Schwartz is a fractured fairy tale of an all time childhood favorite and a companion book to The Three Ninja Pigs.  Ever since the three little pigs started teaching everyone  ninja skills, Wolf has had a hard time scrounging up a meal.  He is craving for some meat.  If you can't be them, join them.  Wolf begins to attend ninja classes and he is ready to try out his new moves.  It should be simple to catch Red and granny, right?

So we look forward to seeing you throughout the month of December and January when you register and check in for the winter reading program.  Don't hesitate to ask any of us for help in selecting some great titles to read.  Go Ninjas; you got this!
