The text, by Gürth's wife, Kim Bellefontaine, is simple but eminently readable with lots of entertaining sound effects, such as the "Brrr!" of ice fishing on a frozen lake and the "Yee haw!" of watching the Calgary Stampede. (Her choice of "x-country skiing" for the letter X, however, seems rather uninspired.) With its blend of familiar symbols (flag, lobster, Mountie), place names (Peggy's Cove, Toronto, Yukon) and activities (hockey, kayaking), ABC of Canada will not only interest Canadian preschoolers but also the youngest of our tourists. (Ages 2 to 6) --Lisa Alward --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
