Young historians will enjoy this book!

by AnchorageSchools (WorldCat user published 2010-04-15) Very Good Permalink

Humor plus facts make history memorable and this series uses that combination successfully.  Young historians will enjoy the introduction to early Viking explorers Leif, Erik the Red and Thorvald.  Exploration is shown as arduous and uncomfortable -more realistic than the movies!
