Samurai by Caroline Leavitt

Cover image for SamuraiI am doing an after school program this week about Samurai and Ninjas.  In preparation I read this short nonfiction book about Samurai.  It is a pretty simple text, accessible to a good 2nd grade reader on up, but it has a lot of interesting facts.  The illustrations are pretty good too, most of them reproductions of historical photos or art work.  Diane read through the book as well, and she said the facts seemed to gibe with what she learned in her Japanese history and culture classes in college.  So, if you need a short but interesting nonfiction on a historical topic, this is not a bad choice. (32 p)
