Dojo Daycare

Dojo Daycare

Themes: daycare, fighting, respect, kindness

When ninja moms and ninja dads drop off their ninja children at the Dojo Daycare, the kids have some trouble settling down for snacks or storytime. No, they'd much rather be fighting, despite the Master's attempts to teach honor, kindness, and respect. Will he ever be able to get them to calm down?

I'll admit, it was the concept that drew me in. I mean, how cool are ninjas?? In the end, however, I was most impressed with the rhyming scheme. The story and the characters were ho-hum for me, but it still instills a good lesson about respecting your teacher. Kids will enjoy the story and listening to (or reading) the rhymes. Overall, it's not anything too exceptional, but something fun to pick up if you're interested.

Find it at your library or on Amazon
