Children's Literature - Annie Laura Smith
Comprehensive information about these Norsemen of Scandinavia is covered in twenty-one brief topics. These areas include: Who were the Vikings?; Warriors and Weapons; Traders, Explorers, and Settlers; Viking towns; and Heroes, Legends, and Sagas. Colored illustrations, maps, cartoons, and sidebars with relevant facts for a respective section supplement the text. These data bring the reader face-to-face with some of the world's expert traders, explorers and settlers. The contents page shows the scope of the material, while the index provides easy navigation through the text. Sidebar quizzes highlight historical facts. Projects such as making a Viking pendant also keep the reader engaged in the content. This book is part of the "100 Things You Should Know" series which includes forty-seven books about history and science. Other historical titles are: 100 Things You Should Know About Explorers; 100 Things You Should Know About Inventions; 100 Things You Should Know About Samurai; 100 Things You Should Know About Warriors; 100 Things You Should Know About Gladiators; 100 Things You Should Know About Myths & Legends; and 100 Things You Should Know About Flight.

This fun box of information gives a wonderful intorduction to Viking life and history. Included in the box is the game hnefatafl (also called tafl) that is challenging for anyone. All the information is easy to read and understand. I highly recommend this item!
