In every part of the world, there are special features of communities, countries and families that set them apart. And Canada is no exception. From the way people talk and dress, to the landscape itself, each part of a community contributes to that uniqueness. how the people around us behave and think are what make up a society.
Canada’s identify continues to be changed and shaped by the people who live in this nation. Canada’s land is vast, and communities of all cultures, attitudes and beliefs are nestled between its three oceans. from the early French and English settlers to immigrants from Asia and the Middle East who are just beginning to make a home here, Canada’s people have a varied and rich heritage and culture.
Each culture brings with it new traditions and customs that are shared and celebrated with all Canadians. In addition to these unique features, there are things that most Canadians share. the thrill of a hockey game, a connection with the natural world, and even a cup of Tim Horton’s coffee are all part of what it means to be Canadian.
as Canadians witness the changes in government, the advance of science and the progress of culture, we watch in wonder at what it will mean to be Canadian in the future. though the future is uncertain, new challenges and triumphs will continue to shape Canadian society.
This is a wonderful book that kids of all ages will enjoy. I can see the book being especially relevant for school projects and research.
