Overview

Although Canada's citizens are usually thought of as law-abiding and loyal to authority, there have been some notable and powerful rebels. From fiery spirits such as William Lyon Mackenzie and Louis-Joseph Papineau in 1837, to men and women who simply defied social convention, Canada's rebels have had a strong impact on its growth as a nation.

I read this book aloud to my children as part of our studies on Native Nations.This book is part of the Discovering Canada series. I found that the content was interesting, and I liked that the book included some suggestions for hands-on activities. The language is more suitable for older children (recommended reading level is ages 9-12), so it was a good fit for my 9 year-old daughter. Her favourite parts of the book were the legends and myths of the different native tribes.The detailed black and white illustrations on each two-page spread were my favourite part of the book!MY RATING: 3 stars! It was good! I enjoyed it!
