It was an engaging read for our 7 year old.



Samurai rule!

I really enjoyed learning about the Way of the Samurai. Everything in this magazine was really informative and I learn so much about this period of history. Thank you so much!


Pretty cool

Great book

Wonderful engaging book. I would have given it 5 starts, but I wish they would ship in a box verse an envelope. My magazine came bent and corners were damaged. I purchased it as a gift for someone and ended up keeping it for my child due to the bad condition it was in.
I am scared to order again due to the next magazine arriving damaged also.
