Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Beverly Kobrin
Respectively, the four volumes, Canada: The Land, Canada: The People, Canada: The Culture, and Canada Celebrates Multiculturalism, provide a general introduction to, 1) Canadian geography, natural resources, and industry, 2) its multicultural citizenry, 3) their holidays and other celebrations, and 4) artistic endeavors, from Cirque de Soleil to hockey. Photographs and illustrations abound.
Children's Literature - Ellen Welty
This beautifully photo-illustrated book, part of the "Lands, Peoples, and Cultures" series, is a great introduction to the geography of our northern neighbor. The map at the beginning of the book shows readers the extent of the Canadian land and its relationship to the Arctic Circle, as well as the bodies of water in the north. A useful description of each of the geographic regions that make up the nation of Canada is provided, as are a chart listing the capitol cities of the provinces, territories and nation and a description of each of those provinces and territories. Several major cities are described in more detail, and there are chapters devoted to natural resources and trade and industry. Agriculture and plants and wildlife are described in some detail as well. This book, as the others in the series, can be used in social studies or geography units or for independent reading. Readers will enjoy the illustrations and accessible text. There is an index and a glossary but no list of references. Reviewer: Ellen Welty
