I'm looking for good books (fact or fiction) about vikings for young children - under 8.

Pirate Diary - The Journal of Jake Carpenter by Richard Platt, illustrated by Chris Riddel. (I think this is good. The illustration is very good (and it won a Greenaway medal for the illustration).

A Flat Stanley collection. (I don't think it's much good. My son enjoys it though.)

And I'm about to start re-reading everything by Fred Vargas.

Still mostly reading childrens books.

Black dog: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Black-Dog-Levi-Pinfold/dp/184877052...

FArTHER: https://www.amazon.co.uk/FArTHER-Grahame-Baker-Smith/dp/1848... (Sadly this book uses a stupid font. Other than that it's lovely.)

I get these from the CILIP Kate Greenaway award. Once you know the name of the writer, or illustrator, or even publisher, you can usually find more good books. http://www.carnegiegreenaway.org.uk/greenaway.php

CILIP is a UK librarian organisation. The US equivalent award is probably something like the Caldecott Medal: http://www.ala.org/alsc/awardsgrants/bookmedia/caldecottmeda...
