Thors Visit To Jotunheim
This easily accessible children’s story is perfect for providing introductory exposure to Norse mythology, and by extension, Scandinavian culture. Cloaked as a story about heroes and monsters, this piece is invaluable for encouraging young students to learn the fundamentals of reading comprehension. In addition, this piece is perfect for introducing the concept of the “creation myth,” a story that gives a plausible, but often fantastical account of how and why the world came to be.
