Let me just tell you, I thought that my innocent post on Goodreads about a great lesson in my class, that just so happened to center on The Three Ninja Pigs book, would motivate others to read an exciting book. Take a look at the post here:
The Three Ninja Pigs by Corey Rosen Schwartz
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I LOVED sharing this book with my elementary babes. We did this right around the Chinese New Year. I was able to combo that wondrous event, with Bruce Lee (my childhood hero)! I appreciated the fact that the Ninja principles of self-discipline, respect, and harmony with nature were evident. Plus, the kids ADORED the illustrations. I taught them the proper bow/greeting for a sensei and had them all bow and greet their teacher, when she returned to collect them from rotation. She was flabbergasted and impressed. GREAT READ and catalyst for activity! So many of my boys are taking KARATE and they were jumping at the bits to show what they've learned. The glossary of terms at the end of the book, was a nice bonus! :)

Little did I know that my will to spread the word about a truly great book would lead to something bigger. Then, I saw this twitter message from the author, who wanted to send my babies some Ninja Pig Bookmarks: AAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHH
@awakenlibrarian Thank you so much for the review on GoodReads. I messages you there, but you might not check, so I'll DM here as well— Corey Rosen Schwartz (@CoreyPBNinja) March 19, 2014
Today, we received the bookmarks!This is just a WONDERFUL example of how a simple act of kindness can turn into a wonderful moment for all involved!
I couldn't post the "Thank you" video my kids permission slip guidelines/rules :( made for Mrs. Schwartz, but we did create this 15 sec. video to commemorate our experience! ENJOY!
The latest update from the Ninja author Extraordinaire, Corey Rosen Schwartz!
