This is 255 pages of everything you could possibly want to know about Canada -written for children. It covers each province and territory listing the geography, culture, climate, industries, resources, recreation, history, and much more of each. There are many short biographies of famous Canadians and many interesting facts about Canada. There are many photographs, illustrations and maps as well as favorite traditional recipes and local vocabulary. Very informative and easy to read.
