My son cannot listen to the same book multiple times. He often tells me ‘Hey! I’ve heard this one! Do we have another?’ Due to this, we are always at the library and we rarely read the same book twice. The one thing I have noticed is the lack of diversity in even children’s books, where I think we need it the most. When we were offered this book for review I was very excited for multiple reasons. First, the main character is a girl and most of the girl books I see are about being a princess. Nina the Neighborhood Ninja? Sounds adorable. Second, it’s diverse! I actually searched for more diverse books in our children’s section and found very few. I’ll take any chance to promote a diverse children’s book. Lastly, after reading it, I loved how she helped the animals around her. Nina was just a doll and I loved this book. My son especially loved this book and has listened to it a FEW times now. If you’re looking for your children’s book, look no further!
What did you think about this book?
Well, it has a cat and Nina saved the cat so I like it.
What was your favorite part of this story?
NINA! and the cat! The pictures were really really super pretty.
Did you like that Nina was super helpful?
SURE! That’s why she’s a superhero.
Would you like to read this one again?
I would like that in a few days because we’ve already listened to it a bunch.
