Viking Longship

Publisher: Frances Lincoln

Review

Learn how the Vikings travelled from their homeland facing storms and rowing for days across the ocean. The reader can learn about how the Vikings invaded other lands and how they lived their lives at home. You can also follow a recipe and make Birka Bread.

Using a sketchbook style to share the information in this book is a great way to engage the reader. A range of font styles and using the illustrations to bring the information to life is highly effective. If you enjoyed this book then you might also like Greek Hero.
