15 Books About Ninjas

I have three boys and we have read a lot of books about ninjas.  Once they all started taking karate the talk of ninja's just increased and we had to really start looking around for more books, movies and activities to go along with their latest passion.



In no particular order these are 15 of our favorite books about ninjas.


1. Diary of a 6th Grade Ninja:  The whole series was read by my middle son who just devoured these books.

5. Lego Ninjago #1: Way of the Ninja:  My youngest son loves any of the Ninjago books.

12. Ninja Dad-- Again my middle son reads any and all Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle books that he can find. 


13. Wink: The Ninja Who Wanted to be Noticed -- we were thrilled to learn that this book had more than one in it's series.

    1. Ninja! by Arree Chung; lots of colorful pictures paired with a shorter and silly story about a boy being a ninja in his own house.
