“...introduces young readers to all the beauty of this spectacular province. The text is two-tiered; simple, lyrical poems touch on key points in Ontario’s amazing wilderness, landforms, history and places to visit, while a detailed sidebar expands on each topic with more information for older readers. Luminescent artwork realistically depicts 26 Ontario scenes and events, in this abecedarian look at the province. Other titles in this provincial alphabet series include P is for Puffin, looking at Newfoundland and Labrador, and S is for Spirit Bear, exploring British Colombia.”
