Review: Join Jack and Annie as they take you through the wonderful world of Ninjas and Samurai. The book Fact Tracker: Ninjas And Samurai by Mary Pope Osborne is a companion to the book Night of the Ninjas by Mary Pope Osborne. People knew when a person was a ninja or when a person was a samurai.
In Fact Tracker: Ninjas And Samurai you can learn almost everything there is to know about both Ninjas And Samurai, from what they wear to there lifestyles. There are a few chapters that are about Samurai, and there are a few chapters that are about Ninjas. The first chapter was about how the Ninjas and Samurai came to be. The last chapter is about how the Ninjas and Samurai ended. Did you know that the Samurai lasted longer than the Ninjas?
Fact Tracker: Ninjas and Samurai is a great book for comparing and contrasting because it gives many facts about the ninjas and the samurai. I recommend this book for children ages 8+. Mary Pope Osborne has written many books in this series, which is called Magic Tree House. There is so much to learn from this book and it is a great companion the Night of the Ninjas. I hope to read many more books in the series by this wonderful author.
