Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Part of the "Discovering Canada" series, The Vikings is an excellent resource for teachers and students. It is filled with both information and activities on the earliest Europeans to discover North America. . . The colourful front- and back-cover illustrations, the large print, and easy-to-understand language of the text make The Vikings particularly attractive for Junior readers. The black-and-white line drawings complement the text in each chapter. . . An essential addition to a library or classroom collection on explorers and Norse mythology and would fit in well as a resource in any active learning classroom, encouraging students to learn about Canada's earliest explorers through activities."

-- CM Magazine

"This series provides a wealth of information about the people, and events in the history of Canada."

-- London Free Press
