In my opinion, books are the best accessory.

The Three Ninja Pigs by Corey Rosen Schwartz, illustrated by Dan Santat – Rhyming that I loved, not obnoxious, smooth, entertaining, and hilarious. Especially appreciated that instead of a message of preparation, it is all about education and studying. Highly recommended.
Goodreads Summary: “Why do wolves think they can come to town and blow all the houses down? These three little pigs just aren’t going to take it from that bully anymore! The first starts aikido lessons—he’ll make mincemeat out of that wolf! His brother learns a little jujitsu–he’ll chop that guy to pieces! But when the wolf actually appears, it turs out these two pigs aren’t quite ready after all. Good thing their sister has been training every day to master some serious karate moves that save the day. KIYA! Corey Rosen Schwartz serves up a fun combination of smart-aleck dialogue and tongue-in-cheek rhymes that’ll have kids howling, and rising star Dan Santat’s spunky illustrations are sure to pack a punch!”
