A Book Review: Wink - The Ninja Who Wanted To Be Noticed
We were lucky enough to receive this book as a gift (shout out to Amy) and what an awesome gift it is. Written and illustrated by J.C. Phillipps, this book is the story of a little boy being torn between becoming a ninja (stealthy and silent) versus an entertainer (look at me! look at me!). At the end of the story he discovers a solution that capitalizes on all of his talents, allowing him to really shine. Hannah just LOVES this book. Cole does too. It's pace is perfect for little kids and the story never seems to get old in our house. I love the use of fabrics in the illustrations and proverbs in the story. "Time spent laughing is time well spent." All ninjas from now on are named "Wink" in our household.
