Leif Erikson was a famous Norse explorer, so some who celebrate this day do so by embarking on a new adventure. Today I recommend a picture book about a Viking who does just that, despite a crippling fear:
A Viking with a fear of the sea? That’s unusual, and a bit of a problem. For Stig it becomes even more of a problem when he meets Ingrid, the most fearless Viking he’s ever seen. He wants to tell her how he feels, but how can he when she spends her life at sea? This heart-warming tale had all the things I love and more: humor with heart, a main character you want to cheer for, a love story, a sea adventure, laugh-out-loud page turns, illustrated end papers (check out the difference between the front and back pages), a surprise under the book jacket, adorable illustrations, and even kittens. I urge you to join Viking Stig on his adventure to love!

Sometimes the pictures and ideas in her head turn into her own children's stories, but she always makes time to read other people's books. Sometimes she reviews them here.
