Leif Ericson: Explorer of Vinland Circa 1000 (We the People)

July 28, 2014

I’ve been a subscriber to a living books, history blog (http://ureadthru.wordpress.com/) for a while now but just recently started borrowing the books that Gwen, the blogger, lists out for each historical topic.  I decided that the boys and I would start with her series on Early American History.  Week 1 is learning about Leif Ericson.  One of the books that she lists is by Dan Zadra – Leif Ericson: Explorer of Vinland Circa 1000 (We the People).  I thought that is was a great living book with an interesting storyline that helps us fulfill our state’s homeschool requirement to learn about American history.  I also borrowed the other suggested book (The Age of Leif Eriksson by Richard Humble) and we will look through that book and decide which pages to read because it’s not as much of a storybook.  We’ll see how much of the topic of Leif Ericson’s voyages/adventures that they find interesting.
