North Pole Ninjas

I received North Pole Ninjas by Tyler Knott Gregson and Sarah Linden in exchange for this post. All opinions are my own.

The holidays are coming, and for those that want to celebrate the true spirit of Christmas, there’s a new holiday tradition with North Pole Ninjas: Mission Christmas!

Sometimes, my kiddos can be selfish and forget that good deeds go a long way and that helping without expecting anything in return is beautiful.

These are what I love about North Pole Ninjas: Mission Christmas. It’s a book that chronicles the legend of the North Pole Ninjas and calls upon new “recruits” to help carry out top-secret missions of caring and kindness with a bit of stealth and an open heart.

It’s an interactive holiday story written by bestselling poet and author Tyler Knott Gregson and Sarah Linden. It includes 50 thoughtful tasks packed in a special envelope for Ninja’s eyes only, along with a huggable “sensei” plush to help young Ninjas on their mission.


Missions are simple, sweet, and will be universally appreciated.

Here are a few of the fun tasks:

  • “Sweep the floors without saying a word. Enjoy the looks of surprise on your family’s faces!”
  • Pay one nice compliment to each person you see today. Be honest and kind.”
  • “Sit, and chat with a new friend at lunch. Make them feel happy.”

About North Pole Ninjas: Mission Christmas:


East meets North in North Pole Ninjas, a yuletide call-to-arms to save the spirit of Christmas.

You may not know that Santa has a team of special elves selected for their ability to help carry out top-secret missions that are all about helping, giving, caring, and listening. Anyone who receives this box is called upon to help carry out those top-secret missions with a bit of stealth and an open heart. The gorgeously illustrated picture book retells the North Pole Ninjas’ ancient legend for recruits. After reading the book, readers are given their Ninja missions: 50 specialized tasks packed in a special envelope. Complete with a plush and huggable “sensei” to guide Ninjas on their journey, this is the perfect antidote to worrying about whether you’ve been naughty or nice.

I love the look of my children’s faces, and their hearts seem so much sweeter after they have given back. They recently crewed a water station at my 5K race, without complaint. They stepped up, did their part. On my way back in, I passed them, and they were cheering other racers on and having so much fun.

Indeed the year would be better if giving back and serving our community was more of a priority.

We are looking forward to the holidays with  North Pole Ninjas: Mission Christmas!
