A Bloom of Friendship: The Story of the Canadian Tulip Festivalby Anne Renaud, Ashley Spires (Illustrator)
Every spring, Canada's capital bursts into color with thousands of tulip blooms. The inspiration for the Canadian Tulip Festival was not only a love of flowers, but also a friendship that blossomed between two countries during World War II. Photos, artifacts, military maps and colorful illustrations bring history to life in this uplifting story of the enduring friendship between Canada and the Netherlands.
This beautifully designed, vibrantly illustrated picture book takes readers on a captivating journey through the history of the Second World War.
Part of the Lobster Press "My Canada" series, a lively exploration of Canadian history for children.
