So Your Child Wants to Be a Samurai?

I will round out Samurai Week with a picture book and a fact book on the Samurai.  For kids who want to learn more about what it takes to be an elite Japanese warrior I have a book that details everything from the training to the armor to the living conditions.  There is even an interview at the end to determine if you would get the job.

For the younger kids I have a book that looks at what qualities a samurai must posses to own the perfect sword.  This sword was forged with attention to every detail.  Only the most worthy will have a chance at the magnificent weapon.

Don't forget to Follow One Great Book on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest or by email so that you won't miss a single book where your kids can find out if they have what it takes to serve a shogun!

Do You Want to Be a Samurai Warrior? by Fiona MacDonald

This book is a wonderful guide to the discover the diverse skills you will need to become a samurai warrior in ancient Japan.  Plenty of illustrations and a handy interview guide at the end of the book make this a fun read and an informative way to see if your child has what it takes.

The Perfect Sword by Scott Goto 

In this book, Micho is an apprentice to a master wordsmith.  When they create the most magnificent sword, they know it cannot go to just any Samurai.  They interview several before they find one with the right amount of humility, a strong work ethic and the ability to care for others.  Rich illustrations and the inclusion of additional information about sword making make this a rewarding read.
