With fast facts, mini missions, and engaging artwork, Vikings in 30 Seconds is an introduction to one of the world's most fascinating cultures. Children will discover all about these amazing warriors, including where they came from, their incredible skill as boat builders and seafarers and how they traded with and settled in other lands. Each topic is presented in a concise 30-second summary, supported by a 3-second flash soundbite and full-colour artwork. Fun, active elements for kids to make-and-do support the topics, encouraging them to test, explore, and discover more.
