Children's Literature
Want to paddle a kayak, mush a dog sled or explore a cave? How about viewing the dancing lights of the aurora borealis or visiting the great fossil deposits that paleontologists call a dinosaur supermarket. These are but a few of the outdoor activities offered by Canadians. As a popular tourist destination, Canada is a vast country with a small population and many remote areas. Many national parks have been instituted to protect wildlife and ecosystems, as half of the country is covered by woodlands and forests. Two languages are spoken here, but the people who settled in Canada have come from all over the world. They love festivals—anything from bagpipes to Shakespeare. Informative text and excellent photographs and captions make this source valuable for research or for armchair tourists. A timeline, fast facts file, comprehensive index and additional resources and websites are included. As part of the "Enchantment of the World Second" series, the easy-to-read text and user-friendly format make this a great reference tool. 2000, Children's Press/Grolier, $33.00. Ages 9 to 12.
