Our favorite Board Book we’ve found for the Geek Baby – especially that isn’t one that we remember from growing up (nostalgia is a thing!) – is Hello Ninja by N.D. Wilson.
It’s a great little read, full of fruit-chopping ninja action. It’s cute, and while on the one hand it seems like a lot of it is play or imagination, on the other hand it never even implies that such a thing would make the boy less of a ninja.
The book only has the one “he” pronoun, and the ninja is covered up pretty much throughout… nothing that makes it at all that it has to be a boy. Our little Geek Baby can ninja too!
So I finally decided that we should buy the second board book by N.D. Wilson, that we kept seeing advertised on the back of the book. We loved this one so much, the other one had to be good too, right?
