Hoping to share a bit of the Germanic Norse ethnicity & culture he inherited from me, as well as entertain him!
Loved this book SO! much, I'm keeping this copy for my own library and buying my grandson another!
I also ended up buying him a used copy of D' Aulaire's Book of Trolls!
I should hope that these two combined with NatGeo's Vikings will make a marvelous Yule gift for my grandson!
I can easily understand adults who remember this book from their childhood libraries (school or public) and who to this day absolutely love this book! <3 Will also be a pleasure to read these to my baby grand-daughter, someday!
I would recommend this for anyone who wishes to hear the wonderful Norse story of Creation, as well as learn or refresh knowledge of their wondrous gods and goddesses!
Wonderful book for anyone of any age with Germanic Norse heritage!
