Children's LiteraturePebble Books' "Our World" series includes 8 titles that create gentle ripples in a child's early understanding of the world beyond his own borders. After reading 180 words, he will know that Canada is a country not unlike many other English-speaking countries, yet unique in its own way. He will get a peek at two animals that populate this country's arctic regions. Devoting one page each to sports, language, transportation, agriculture, money, and the significance of the Canadian red maple, the author gives a young reader a very brief snapshot of America's neighbor to the north. Serving the needs of emergent or struggling readers, Pebble books introduce children to places they will surely want to get to know better. This easy reader enables teachers to incorporate social studies into reading practice. A table of contents, glossary, bibliography, and index enhance the teaching according to early information literacy standards. 2002, Pebble Books/Capstone Press, Ages 6 to 9.
