We took our Norway books out on a snowy day. Gage decided that he’s not cut out for the Norwegian weather!
We listened to the audio of Snow Treasure by Marie McSwigan, a 1942 historical fiction book for tweens. A great story, based on stories never confirmed, about Norwegian children smuggling gold past the Nazis during WWII. 196 pages
The two troll books based on Noregian tales were fun. Sister Bear by Jane Yolen and Linda Graves is a picture book Christmas story sure to entertain the older elementary set. The troll illustrations alone are worth a look. 32 pages
The Heartless Troll by Oyvind Torseter is a graphic novel that will appeal to middle schoolers. 120 pages
Sniffer & Tinni by Breit Helberg and Torgeir Berge is the story of a true life friendship between a dog and a fox told with photographs. Sure to delight elementary school animal lovers. 40 pages
Norway looks beautiful, but not someplace I’m adding to my travel plans just yet.

I love doing geography/literature units with my son! We did a whole Norway unit study at Christmas two years ago and it was so fun. And I love Jane Yolen!
That was a fun idea!
