One morning, six young ninjas are dropped off at Dojo Daycare. As soon as their ninja moms and ninja dads have left: KABOOM! KAPOW! The ninja boys and girls push and pull, bust and break, and generally turn the place upside down in a full-blown ninja riot. Try as he might, the hapless master can’t control the kids, and the disaster plays out through lunchtime and storytime. No one heeds the master’s repeated mantra of honor, kindness and respect – until one little ninja steps up and rallies his ninja pals to undo all the damage that they have done, just in time for pickup.

Digitally rendered ninjas pop off the page in this rowdy tale. Told in rhyming verse with a lively rhythm, comic expressions, and big sound effects, Dojo Daycare makes for an unbeatably boisterous read-aloud.

Available to buy from Follett and OverDrive.

"[A] rollicking read-aloud."
