Viking tales of Woden, Thor, Frigg, Saturn and more fill this book. From these tales, Vikings named the days of our week. Seven Viking Days engages children, parents and grandparents with vibrant, unique illustrations while telling these stories in the context of Viking lifestyle and society. It is a conversation between Sun and the Viking boy, Canute, and reinforces the correct sequence of the days. The authentic origins of our days’ names resulted solely from the author’s thorough research into ancient Scandinavian myths and legends. This children’s picture book is full color, hardcover, 8.5 by 11 inches, 32 pages. ISBN 978-1-4958-0584-4. Library of Congress Cataloging-in-Publication Data: 2015937660.
