Here is Iceland! by Margrét Tryggvadóttir & Linda Ólafsdóttir
"Here is Iceland!" is a beautifully illustrated book about the island we all love. Even though it is essentially written as a book for children it is highly educational even for the seasoned adult. Just under 100 pages of interesting facts about Iceland, it's seasons, wildlife, geology, fauna and places of interest. A must have for any Iceland enthusiast and also makes a wonderful gift for inquisitive kids and early teens.
This book was nominated for the Icelandic Literary Award and received the numerous awards for its unique illustrations.
Also available in 2 pack with Here is Reykjavík
The book is mentioned in my blog: http://www.commonsensereflections.info/blog/2023/10/1/iceland-a-delightful-place-to-visit It will soon be in the hands of my 6 grandkids and my niece’s two kids. It’s informative but easy to read and understand for all ages.
Always something new to learn..
In my quest to become an Islandsvinur, I found this, and companion book, This is Reykjavik, to be both educational and enjoyable. I learned any number of new things about my favorite places; the format and artwork is reminiscent of children's books, but they can be read and appreciated fully by adults as well as young adults. They are very nice books I could not find available on Amazon, and I'm glad Grapevine offers them.
