My Canada: An Illustrated Atlas (228)

This is an endearing book for kids that is informative and inspiring. And it is just in time for our 150th Birthday!

This is a book that all readers, even adults, will learn a lot about the different provinces in Canada.

For instance, where can you find a goose that stands nearly three storeys high? Where can you find a forest made completely of signposts?  Where can you find a beach with sands that sing?  You can journey right across Canada without leaving your home!!

The book is also written in a very whimsical and informative way. It is a wonderful introduction to our country from seas to sea. Each province and territory has its own full-page map packed with iconic landmarks, places of interest, key lakes and rivers, animals and much more.

This lively picture book lets readers leave their suitcases behind and explore Canada one map at a time. Along the way, armchair travellers of all ages will discover the wonders that make our country unique.

I loved this book and I love all books about Canada. And now that we are 150 years young, I am sure there will be a lot more books like this one that will give the reader the honour of finding out more and more about our wonderful country.

What a wonderful country this is!  I definitely love it more and more as I am reading more and more about it.
