Format: Paperback
As a fifth grade teacher of Canada and Latin America I have been searching for great books about Canada to share with my students. On our field trip to Fort George, I came across this book and wished that I had it when I taught my class about the Native peoples of Canada. This book not only covers the required information, but includes other information for students in regards to what life was life for the Indian peoples. A great addition, besides the illustrations, are simple hand-on activities that do not require you to find materials that are not already in your classroom. I can't wait to get the other books in the series.

Format: Paperback
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!

This often overlooked series is the only one that I have found that introduces students (grades 5-7) to the story of Canadian history in a lively, engaging, interesting and accessible way. The writing is around a grade 6 level, the illustrations are detailed, and while I wouldn't use the activities in my classroom, I've actually had students take the books home and complete them on their own time. These books are perfect to be used as age appropriate, supplementary readings for any junior high classroom.
