Review of Ninja Baby

Ninja Baby, by David Zeltser and Diana Goode is a funny book with engaging characters and emotional illustrations. Nina the ninja baby comes out of the womb doing ninja kicks and "obliterating" her applesauce. Nina is an independent toddler who is later flummoxed by the arrival of a new Kung Fu master, her little brother. How does he stay so focused and keep the attention of the parents so well? Nina's feelings as an older sister are beautifully portrayed in this zany, clever, and perfect read-aloud! 

There are several laugh-out-loud moments in this book that are perfectly balanced with the heart of the story. The twist ending leaves you wanting to know more about Nina, her brother, and their mysterious parents.

  2. 10 Little Ninjas, by Miranda Paul, although it's a counting book and only one of the elements is ninjas. But still--ninjas!

  5. Some babies have more wind than others, but all need to be burped after feeding. If your baby doesn't release upper wind it then works its way down their little body and transforms to lower wind, which is generally more upsetting for your baby and more difficult to release.baby products made in usa
