I love teaching my kids about Canada!
This book is pretty neat. It explores Canada through letters written while a little girl visits each province. It has Mummers in Newfoundland, which I thought was a great piece of history! I really enjoyed the pieces of culture that the author linked to each province in the Maritimes. The other provinces, I felt, weren't as well researched. There was also no mention of Canada's territories, which is a shame because there is a real history there.
For what I wanted this book for, which is to read as a bedtime story when Christmas comes around (yes, I know, I prepare early) it is pretty long. However, I will use it to teach about the basic cultures of the 10 provinces of Canada. I just feel that it missed so much.

"The Twelve Days of Christmas in Canada" book is quality from beginning to end. It is both extremely entertaining and highly educational - both those "e" words are worthy of two thumbs up when it comes to a high recommendation from me regarding a children's book - Canadiana highlighted at its finest for sure.

Juliette is off to her grandmother and cousin Theo's house for the holidays. They both live in the beautiful country of Canada. She has been promised a whirlwind tour of one of the best countries in the world and was asked to bring her hat and mittens that grandmother knit because Canada is very cold at Christmastime. She was told to be prepared for the ice and snow and freezing weather. Yep, that's winter in Canada alright.

She lands in Charlottetown, PEI and the trip across this spectacular land by plane, train, car, boat, and yes you guessed it, by dogsled ensues. The journey takes her from sea to shining sea with lots of adventures and learning inbetween. She visits province after province and Theo and Grandmother give her information on the importance of each and fill her in on the contributions each make to their own country as well as globally. The trio dance, munch, watch a hockey game (hockey is very big in Canada) and watch a mesmerizing aurora borealis (northern lights) light show in the heavenlies just to name a few of the exciting things she experiences on her junket.

Juliette records her daily happenings and sends letters back home to her parents telling them of her extraordinary Canuck escapades. The author has dedicated the back pages to inform the reader of Canadian inventions, amazing Canadian people, cool Canadian records, wacky Canadian landmarks, astounding Canadian history and last but not least, glorious Canadian nature.

The illustrations are packed full of action, details, emotion, excitement and fun. Sounds like a book well worth reading and passing on to others around you eh?

Format: Hardcover
Juliette is heading to Canada to spend the Christmas holidays with her grandmother and cousin, Theo.

They start off in Charlottetown, PEI, and finish their travels in Victoria, BC, making their way by plane, train, car, boat and even dog sled! Their travels are recorded in letters that Juliette is sending back home to her parents. In keeping with the 12 days of Christmas, Juliette gets some great Canadian gifts along the way ... like a loon in a maple tree, two mummers' masks, three lobsters, etc.

Along the way, they do a lot of exploring and learn about the regions. For example, did you know that from 1928 to 1971, one million people from all over the world arrived at Pier 21 in Halifax by sea to start new lives in Canada? Or that Quebec produces 77% of the world's supply of maple syrup?

This is a children's book that is entertaining AND educational. It is colourfully illustrated and there is a lot of attention to detail.

At the end, there are a couple page with facts about amazing Canadians, awesome Canadian inventions (such as the telephone and instant mashed potatoes), cool Canadian records (the world's tallest recroded femail was born in Nova Scotia in 1846), wacky Canadian landmarks (the world's largest hockey stick is in Duncan, BC), astounding Canadian history (the hottest recorded day in Canada was 45C/113F in 1937 in Yellow Grass, SK) and glorious Canadian nature (Canada has about 60% of the all the world's lakes [about three million]).

Did not care for this book at all!! Nothing really rhymes or makes sense. The pictures are not good for a young child. I was very disappointed.
