As in her other Wow Canada! books, Vivien Bowers shares her humor and her love of country with her readers. The comments made by Rachel’s companions, the labels, the many little details add consistent appeal for all readers. The fact that she has it resemble a child’s scrapbook…makes it very engaging to its audience.
Lavishly illustrated with color photos and drawings, this latest addition to the series is excellent for projects or casual reading.
No wonder this book is part of the “Wow Canada!” series. Bravo, Vivien Bowers! Highly Recommended.
By exploring Canadian symbols and icons, Bowers, entertains and delights even as she educates us about ourselves. Lots of fun and hours of browsing for Canadians of any age!
This book could have been just another boring history or geography book, but Vivien Bowers made it an enjoyable learning experience.
The Canadian trivia oozes like maple syrup on hot flapjacks. Guaranteed to make you stand a little taller in your toque. ***** (of 5).
Full of facts, the book is a learning experience – and a lot of fun!
Vivien Bowers and Dianne Eastman have got the put-a-little-fun-into-it thing down to a fine art.
Humorous and fascinating facts about Canada…

I believe this should read 1763 (not 1753) as the Battle of the Plains of Abraham was in 1759 and the Seven Years War ended in 1763.
