Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Eileen Hanning
Learn about the history, beliefs, traditions, and conquests of the mighty Vikings in this informative picture book from the "If You Were There" series. This book makes an effort to go well beyond the stereotypical Viking-as-marauder image. In addition to sections on conquests, the book includes information about home life, exploration, architecture, arts, religion, and the Normans. Touching on several different aspects of Viking culture and history, this book provides an enticing introduction that will encourage young readers to explore further. Readers will find detailed drawings, photographs, and maps throughout. As an added bonus, the book contains a time line, comparing what was happening in Viking lands and the rest of the world, and a game board for "Raid, Trade, or Settle", a game about the Viking era.
School Library Journal
Gr 4-7--Both of these books feature 11 topics on double-page spreads, illustrated with colorful, detailed paintings. The texts appear to be little more than captions for the artwork, but they communicate a lot of information. Aztec Times includes the origins of this early civilization, daily life and customs, and the arrival of the Spanish. Viking Times, while not discounting the warlike ways of the northern folk, covers explorations and trade, the Norman conquerors of England, and the Christianization of the Vikings. Each book includes a world time line and a pictorial map. The back covers fold out into game boards with directions (and should present no difficulties in circulation). The games differ in how they are played, and are sufficiently complex to keep young people interested. Joanna Defrates's What Do We Know About the Aztecs? (Peter Bedrick, 1993) has a similar format for the same age group; Tim Wood's The Aztecs (Viking, 1992) goes into more detail. Fiona MacDonald's How Would You Survive as an Aztec? (Watts, 1997) is even more interactive. Margaret Mulvihill's Viking Longboats (Watts, 1989), in spite of the title, has much the same coverage, although in less detail; while Jacqueline Morley's How Would You Survive As a Viking (Watts, 1995) shares the interactive format of the Aztec entry in the same series. These are attractive, useful additions wherever more material is needed.--Pam Gosner, formerly at Maplewood Memorial Library, NJ
