This book has a wee bit of everything to celebrate all that’s good in Canada through her 150 years of being. I liked it! A well written book that touches on all aspects of Canadian life.
About the book: A year-by-year tour of Canada’s fascinating history highlights a single
milestone for every year from the country’s founding in 1867 up to its
150th anniversary in 2017. Divided into ten distinct eras, coverage
ranges from politics, sports, business and arts and culture, and
includes significant events both at home and in world affairs.
So what did I think you ask? I thought this was a rather neat book, seeing the highlights, at least in the eyes of the author, over the past 150 years was very interesting. 🙂
What drew my attention?
The years are divided into 10 year sections. Making it easy to target the era most interested in.
The coverage isn’t focused on just one area of Canadian life.
Shows Canada at home and in the the world. A great timeline of Canadian life, the easy and the not so easy included.
Profiles of Canadians, from various walks of life. Prime Ministers, athletes, women in action, and more.
Good division of white space, text and images. Book designed to appeal to all ages, at a level easily read by most children.
What can I say, this is an good book that reveals a lot about Canada, many facts that I previously wasn’t aware of. If you are learning about Canada, check out this book, you’ll be amazed at the accomplishments of my wonderful land.
