written by Kathy-jo Wargin; illustrated by Renée Graef

Located in Northern Europe and the North Atlantic, the Nordic Countries/Territories are comprised of Sweden, Norway, Finland, Denmark, Iceland, Greenland, the Faroe Islands, and Aland. And while they may share a region and some traditions, each has its own distinct geography, history, and heritage. Explore Greenland where, contrary to its name, more than 80 percent of the land is covered by an ice cap. It is home to the polar bear, as well as walrus, reindeer, and seal. Stop off in Copenhagen, the capital city of Denmar - the statue of the Little Mermaid from Hans Christian Andersen's fairy tale can be found near the harbour.  Visit Sweden's lively Jokkmokk Winter Market which draws visitors from around the world, or sample the tasty fare of a Swedish smorgasbord.  D is for Dala Horse: A Nordic Countries Alphabet gives young readers an A-Z tour.

Recommended by the publisher for young readers 6-9 years old (Grades 1-4); recommended by nest for this age group if there is keen interest that is being followed, but otherwise, it could also be nice for children 10 or 11 year olds, and even some adults will enjoy exploring.

Hardcover, 40 pages.  11 x 10".
