This Land of Ours #HeyCanada Blog Tour
How many of you have had the opportunity to travel this amazing country and see it from coast to coast to coast?
Someday, I hope to have the opportunity to see a little more than the view out my window in my little country town, here in Southern Ontario. And, I would love for my children to experience all that Canada has to offer, in all its glory!
Join Gran as she takes her grandchildren across our vast country through the colourful and fact filled pages of Hey Canada! Hey Canada! is written in a language that children understand and relate to, yet, it is jammed full of fun facts and tidbits of our country's history.
The book combines poems, narrative, photos and comics to tell the story of Canada.
We've loved flipping through the pages and seeing the flag of each province, and having the opportunity to discuss the geography of Canada with my children. (Being the daughter of a Geography teacher, I appreciate the chance to teach them a little about our country.)
Jillian loved Hey Canada! so much that she even took it to school to share with her teacher and classmates.
Celebrate our nation's birthday with Hey Canada! We won't be putting this book on the bookshelf after July 1st though, I plan to reference and read the book with my children all summer long. After all this land is made for discovery, even if it is from the comfort our living room couch, or on the beach by one of our Great Lakes.
