10 of 10 people found the following review helpful By H. Miller on Aug. 24 2009
Format: Hardcover
On first glance I was thrilled when this book arrived. The illustrations are beautiful, and it is full of wonderful Canadian information. However, "L is for Louisburg" found on "New Brunswick's Cape Breton Island" was a HUGE disappointment, and is utterly incorrect. Being from Nova Scotia, where Cape Breton is actually located, this turned me off of this book. With such a glaring mistake, who knows what other information is incorrect. I want my children to be accurately informed about their country. For this reason, I would not recommend this book.

"M is for Maple: A Canadian Alphabet" is a marvellous find. Whether you are a geography buff, full of Canadian pride, or someone who just loves to look at beautiful things, this is the book for you!
Mike Ulmer's rhyme scheme is a pleasure to read silently or aloud. His choices for each letter are fitting for Canada and represent all regions and citizens. The thing I liked most about his choices is that they are unpredictable, unlike a lot of other books of this genre.
Paired up with Melanie Rose's awe-inspiring illustrations, Ulmer's writing cannot go wrong. Rose captures Canada's positive aspects in warm colours, soft lines, and heart-warming depictions.
Lastly, the side captions outlining additional information on the featured item or offering a second feature is a great way to educate readers while keeping the same light-hearted tone.
This book is an all-around winner in my mind.

Format: Hardcover
The alphabet book has nearly become a genre of its own within the world of children's literature. With every child's bookshelf containing one or two alphabet books that proclaim, 'A is for Apple, B is for Banana' or alternately, 'A is for Ant, B is for Bear,' it's easy to see how the elegant and informative alphabet titles from Sleeping Bear Press are redefining the genre.

M is for Maple: A Canadian Alphabet by Mike Ulmer is quickly becoming the quintessential Canadian version of the alphabet book. Illustrated in rich, glowing oils by accomplished artist Melanie Rose, and covering a broad range of topics that are woven deeply throughout the culture of Canada, this beautiful book is both appealing and useful in a wide variety of age groups and settings.

Each letter of the alphabet is introduced through rhyming text that draws out one symbol, historical personage, location, people group, sport, and so on, that helps to capture the spirit of Canada as a whole.

So instead of a simple, 'A is for Anne,' readers are treated to:

'A is for Anne ' that's Anne with an E
a red headed orphan who loved Avonlea.
The Cuthberts had thought they were adopting a boy,
But that red headed girl would be their pride and their joy.'

Informative sidebar text that digs into the presented subject matter provides background information, facts, and trivia ' leaving readers 'in the know' about important Canadian topics. Adding to the educational element, Sleeping Bear Press also has a free downloadable teaching guide available for grades 2 ' 6, helping teachers dig deeper into the presented materials with their students.
