Red Kite Books' "Discovering" series offers a refreshing take on history: 32-page non-fiction books with a rhyming fictional story line along the bottom of each spread.
Children learn from the informative main text and then engage with the subject through the story line, the spectacular illustrations and - in trade editions - the free flag or other component.
In "Discovering Vikings", we go on a thrilling journey of discovery through history to find out who the Vikings were, where and how they lived, fought and died, and how they ventured forth on amazing voyages of exploration and colonisation, some as far as America!
The rhyme at the bottom of each spread tells the story of Eadred, the Viking leader who takes his people to settle in far-off Greenland.
Trade edition includes a free Viking helmet.
