We participate in a weekly homeschool history co-op which involves many hands-on crafts and activities. In conjunction with our Viking History Co-op we read many wonderful living books. Here are our favorites in order of easiest to most difficult.
Magnus the Viking is a story about the Viking discovery of America. From Viking Adventure by Clyde Robert Bulla we learned a lot about the Viking way of life. Leif the Lucky taught us about the Viking discoveries of Greenland and America. D'Aulaires Book of Norse Myths is filled with delightful stories of Norse Gods and their Adventures. Viking Tales by Jeannie Hall is written in two parts. Viking Tales is also available free on the internet. From the first part we learned about Harold Fairhair and some Norwegian History, the second part was another story of the Vikings discovery of Greenland and America.
We really enjoyed reading these books and hope you will too!
