The latest addition to the Very Young Catholic series!
Iceland’s northerly location means that deep winter is dark nearly all day, and deep summer is light nearly all day.
The contrasting aspects come to life in this account of two energetic children, as they romp through Iceland’s remarkable landscape. They swim (in November!), fish, sled, climb trees, and splash in the thermal pools that dot the country. The older brothers and sister are loving and protective to these two mischievous youngest members of the family.
All the family joins for prayer and song with their high-spirited Catholic community.
BONUS content includes:
- J.R.R. Tolkien and his deep knowledge of the old Icelandic sagas,
- genealogy records,
- glaciers and geysers,
- St. Thorlak,
- and more!
