Continuing with our theme of family and sharing The Littlest Viking.

Sven’s life changes a whole lot when his little sister is born.  He doesn’t know what to make of her — she’s a fierce little thing and oh, is she a crier!  No one knows quite how to appease her cantankerous spirit but Sven thinks he’s got an idea. 😉  A heartwarming tale about welcoming new siblings.

The Littlest Viking was written by Alexandra Penfold, illustrated by Isabel Roxas and published by Knopf Books for Young Readers.
