About the Book

Five little children take you on a fun-filled journey through twelve months in the life of Canada's kids.

Meet Liam, Ava, Oki, Chloe and Noah - Canadian kids representing a multicultural blend of culture and race that typifies our amazing country. They'll take you through a year in the life of Canada's kids, from celebrations, traditions and events, to our everyday way of life and the little things that make childhood so memorable. A Canadian Year is a picture book bursting with national pride. It's a snapshot of who we are as Canadians, blending our modern-day culture and lifestyle with past traditions and native heritage. Its pages feature meandering text, dates and gorgeous illustrations showcasing our five Canadian kids at play, at school, at home, and enjoying the sights and sites of our nation. From the frozen glaciers of our north to the sweeping prairies, rocky mountains and great lakes, from vibrant cities to tiny towns, this is our Canadian childhood.
