    • We finished this today and I was told it was really super boring Some days I just want to send them to public school But the other son quickly jumped in and said it wasn t boring, but really cool Well, I liked it I thought it well written and engaging The illustrations were excellent and each page had either a large colored picture or a smaller brown or black ink drawing.We learned a lot and tracked their journeys on a map Even though it was boring they were able to tell me a lot about it and I [...]

    • Okay, Leif the Lucky might ve topped Benjamin Franklin The contest was a close one It s the d Aulaires world, I m just living in it.We haven t yet read every work by the d Aulaires But their works on Leif Erikson and the Norse Gods show they have a passion for Norwegian mythology, history, and folklore The kids absolutely loved the scene where, as their boat approaches Greenland, Erik the Red has Leif remove the carved dragon from the Viking ship s prow, for fear that its fierce expression might [...]

    • Yes it s a kids book, and yes it is wonderful and endearing I m fortunate enough to own a couple of the d Aulaires books and this one is no exception to the trend of intricate and gorgeous illustrations Were I to ever raise children, this one would hands down be in the bedtime rotation Often.

    • Summary The story of Leif, and his trip to America.Why I Read This I had read the Greek Myth version of the d Aulaires books, but someone recommended that I read a few different ones.Review This was good It seemed to be a good summary of the story I m honestly not sure if it was the true story or a mythologization not a word of the true story.

    • I really enjoy the D Aulaire s books, especially to teach history to a broad range of ages in our case age 3 11 The illustrations are wonderful, and we especially enjoy learning history by focusing on individual historical figures.

    • Another well done book by the D Aulaires I just can t get enough of these guys Leif is the son of Erik the Red, a famous Viking Erik has a hard time getting along with his fellow Vikings and is kicked out of Norway He moves to Iceland but it is too crowded for him, so he strikes out to find a new unexplored land where there can be lots of space between neighbors He and some of his followers eventually make it to Greenland and settle there Some visitors that got lost in a fog accidentally sailed [...]

    • I really like this author s approach to children s literature because she combines great details and story in long pages of the 50 page book but also includes beautiful illustrations that make it come alive for readers young and old It is a great transition from picture books to chapter stories for elementary readers and gives great details about Leif Erikson a Norwegian explorer who discovered the coast of Canada around 1000 AD.I also really love her book on Lincoln Great for read aloud to all [...]

    • This one I read along with younger son I would stay a page or two ahead of him, so that I could be sure he was comprehending the material Although the book is slender and has lots of pictures, which is why I m sure that he chose it, it is advanced than it looks The book has a rich vocabulary, and the word choices match the fact that this is very old history being told.The pictures are marvellous, and the story is good, though not quite as good as others by the same author My son enjoyed the boo [...]

    • You cannot go wrong with the D Aulaire s and this work is no exception Beautiful art and compelling text bring the world of the Vikings, with it s beauty and grit, to life The attention to detail in creating a Norse feel to the entire work is admirable A pleasure for an adult to share with a child Early elementary students may find it long winded and worthy of a couple sittings, but it is worth it Recommended for study of the time period.

    • We have really enjoyed all of the books and art that we have read by Ingri and Edgar Parin D Aulaire Leif the Lucky was no exception Even though there is surely some fiction to be weaved into these stories, it s also nice to read an entertaining book that helps us learn about history This one was especially fun for me since I have ancestors who came from Norway I got to talk to the kids about how each generation carried a different last name, making family history tricky

    • It s a very good story and actually funny at points too They arrived at Newfoundland and called it Vinland and they Ballin Island and called it Stone Slabland In Vinland they found Native Americans or native Newfloundlanders and made friends with the Native Americans but the natives got angry at them once and there was a big black ball thing that they were shooting at the Norsemen.

    • The D Aulaires never fail Their books are always imaginatively illustrated and beautifully well told The writing deeply respects the child reader and speaks to them in a voice which respects their intellect and their natural curiosity The books are always wholesome and safe without being pedantic This one is a real jem We could not put it down.

    • We are big fans of the D Aulaire s and their illustrations Read as part of our Early American History curriculum Beautiful Feet , we enjoyed each page Our discussions centered mostly around Leif s industriousness My boys were in awe of his adventures It was hilarious that days later it clicked in their 5 7 year old brains that it was a true story.

    • Read this one with my kid for summer reading for school entering 6th grade It seemed like it had several run on sentences, but the pictures were interesting, and the story line was interesting It was a shorter story on her list, to balance out the longer ones she is doing.

    • My 4 1 2 year old loved this book This was our third Ingri d Aulaire book, and I continue to appreciate her work I find her stories honest than other children s stories, including things like in this one where the king tells the man who was rude to him to eat until he bursts.

    • Part of our Beautiful Feet literature based curriculum Loved the book and the art work Though, I had heard of the Vikings, I had never heard the story of Leif the Lucky and his discovery of the New World around 1000 AD.

    • All the books in this series are simply written, with beautiful illustrations, and from a Christian viewpoint They re an excellent way to teach about our country s beginnings Pocahontas was probably our favorite.

    • This is part of our history curriculum this year The kids really enjoyed the story The illustrations are great with some color pages and some just black and white While I thought the kids might not like thatey actually thought it was cool.

    • All three of my children loved this book so I may have to obtain our own copy Went very well with our Mystery of History lesson on Leif my children definitely agree that it wasn t Leif who was lucky but those he saved from drowning They were also very intrigued by the beautiful illustrations

    • Loved the beautiful illustrations and written details in this story of Leif Erickson s journeys Appropriate for grades 3 7.
