Now, I am not Heathen, but my good forum friend ThorsSon was for quite a long time, and he wrote this and gave me permission to post it.  Whether or not you are Heathen, its some interesting mythology (a good kids myth source for Norse mythology is D’Aulaires’ Book of Norse Myths).

Edited to add (5May13): Just came across this awesome post in my reader with some other resources.
