About Ronin Cleans His Room Like a Ninja

Ronin couldn’t wait to grow up so people would stop telling him what to do.

His Uncle Max is cool, so Ronin was comfortable talking about ninja stuff with him. While Ronin’s parents are away on vacation, Uncle Max shows him what it takes to become a ninja. Combining play with a lesson in discipline, the story and illustrations show kids a different way to think about cleaning their room.

“This is a fun book that promotes cognitive reframing. It’s such an important material for kids’ mindfulness, challenging the little ones to change their mindset about caring for their rooms.” — Carola Schmidt, author of Tell Me a Story, Babushka

My Review
Ronin Cleans His Room Like a Ninja is a fun children's book that teaches kids to find fun, new ways to do things they may not want to do. 
Ronin is a typical boy. He hates doing his homework. He hates cleaning his room. And he hates being told what to do. But when his parents go on vacation and leave Uncle Max in charge, Ronin discovers a whole new appreciation for doing the things he dislikes. Plus, his mom will stop telling him what to do if he gets it all done before she can even mention it. Win! 
Uncle Max both shows and tells Ronin how to clean his room like a ninja. He makes it fun. He makes it almost like a competition. And Ronin realizes he enjoys cleaning his room if he does it like a ninja.
This book is delightful. It's interactive. The illustrations are wonderful. And the overall theme is something kids will connect to and want to emulate. 
Highly recommend to parents of young kids who may have moments where they just don't want to do what they're told. 
5 stars!
