One in Canada
By Maxine Trottier
This is more than a counting book. It is unique in that one to ten become more than numbers. They are a celebration of Canada, its land and its resources, and rejoices in our heritage and our people.
The Five Great Lakes, The six Nations People, the Group of Seven — each number visits a chapter in Canada’s history, gathering momentum through our rich past and building a vision towards an exciting future. Through the sweeping perspective of the illustrations, we zoom in from space to the depths of the oceans. We cast a fresh eye on our country’s geography, from Pacific to the L’Anse aux Meadows, from the New Nunavut to Point Pelee.
The illustrations are also very unique. I absolutely love them and was transported into the various places across the wonderful land.
