COUNTRY OF THE MONTH

Scandinavia

Home of Nordic noir and happiness.

In keeping with our Nordic focus this month, we have a selection of books from the Nordic countries. Did you know that Denmark consume the most sweets in the world? Maybe that’s why they’re so happy. Or that the inventors of LEGO® toys got started in Billund, Denmark in 1932 manufacturing not LEGO® blocks but stepladders. During Easter in Sweden, children dress up and go from home to home asking for candy.

The world’s largest population of Arctic reindeer herders can be found in Norway. In Norway’s dark winter during the Polar nights, the sun is up for only 3 hours a day in some parts (and in others, doesn’t come up at all). The most popular souvenir in Sweden is the commonly seen “moose-crossing” warning sign along roads in Sweden. Swedes replace thousands of these traffic signs each year.
