series of short fact and exercise books aimed at younger children (K-2+). Released 23rd July 2019 by Quarto on their Ivy Kids imprint, it's 48 pages and available in paperback format.
This is a well written book, historically accurate and accessible for all ages, and an interesting and worthwhile series. Facts are
presented with color paintings on each double page.
Relevant supporting information is presented in sidebars. The included
activities are also presented in sidebars at the bottom of the pages.
Chapters are short and cover who (and when) the Vikings were, their society and codes of conduct, their technology and artisanship, music, food, festivals, religious beliefs and more. The art style is unpretentious and appealing (see cover).
This would make a
great weekend activity, classroom or library read for young
readers, and the series would be great as a part of a homeschool
library. There's a short alphabetical glossary included at the end.
Disclosure: I received an ARC at no cost from the author/publisher for review purposes.
