Ninjago Reading Books for Boys

by TerriRexson

There's a range of Lego Ninjago reading books that boys will really enjoy. There are early reader books and chapter books for independent readers.

My son is learning to read. He loves reading, but sometimes the books he brings home from school aren't very interesting to him.

We've just discovered the Ninjago reading books. Now they are a different story! He loves reading them and is determined to make progress so he can learn more about Ninjago.

It can be a challenge to find good reading books for boys so I'm pleased to have come across this range. They definitely make reading cool and fun.

Ninjago Early Reader Books - Overview

The Ninjago early reader books are for children from age 4 who can read or sound out quite a few words. The are not suitable as the very first reading books, but once the basics have clicked into place they're a good next step for boys interested in Lego, ninjas, or the Ninjago theme. 

These books have a high quality Ninjago illustration on each page with a few sentences to read. The pictures help kids to work out words from context. Especially if they recognise the Ninjago characters and other story elements. 

These reading books have 32 pages organised into short chapters, this makes the books a good precursor to proper chapter books. 

Kids who are familiar with the Ninjago story will definitely find the books easier than those who haven't.

Ninjago Readers Reading Books: Review

My son is 5 and we have the Lego Ninjago Reader #1: The Way of the Ninja. This book is just the right level for him. He's not reading independently yet, he reads to me and gets help when he needs it. I'm very impressed with how well these reading books are put together, most of the words are either:

  • Common words he knows already, 
  • Words he can sound out phonetically, or
  • Words he can work out from the context and because he's Ninjago crazy - like 'samurai'.

There are a few words he needs help with. But that's good as it means he's learning. 

Here's an example sentence:

"You made it too quickly, Kai" said his sister Nya. "Be patient."

My son could read everything except 'patient.' Knowing about the Ninjago characters meant he easily recognised Kai and Nya. 

I've been quite impressed at some of the words he has worked out because he knows the Ninjago story, from Lego sets and the movie / TV series. This gives him confidence. 

Ninjago Chapter Books

For kids of age 7 and up (grade 2), the Ninjago chapter books are around 80 pages long. They are proper chapter books for independent readers. 

I'm sure that younger readers would enjoy having the books read to them, but they make perfect first chapter books for boys who love Ninjago.

A sample sentence from Cole: Ninja of Earth.

"Now instead of facing two guards, he was up against a dozen."

As you would expect with Ninjago, the books do contain 'cartoon violence.' If you have seen the Ninjago TV show then you'll have some idea what to expect. 

There are currently four Ninjago chapter books in this series, one for each of the ninja: Kai, Jay, Cole and Zane. 

Great Books for Reluctant Readers

The Ninjago readers make great books for reluctant readers. If they're already Ninjago fans then the story will be familiar to them which will help.

If not, they could watch the Ninjago movie first and this will provide the backstory. Available March 2012.
