Book review: Explore Norse Myths! With 25 Great Projects, by Anita Yasuda, illustrated by Bryan Stone

Yasuda, Anita. Explore Norse Myths! With 25 Great Projects. (Series: Explore Your World). Illus. Bryan Stone. Nomad, 2015. $14.95. 96p. 9781619303201. Ages 7-10. P6Q7

Yasuda Explore Norse MythsFollowing the pattern of this series with timeline, glossary, index, informational sidebars, and activities, the book presents information not only about the Scandinavian myths but also facts about the people and culture in the place before the 12th century. Activities are more entertaining that in some of the other books in the series, incorporating art, math, and science as well as literature. Although one of the cartoons shows a stereotypical view of Native Americans, the book is a welcome addition to curriculum.
