Gran has decided that she is taking nine-year-old Alice and eight-year-old Cal on a road trip across Canada “before she’s old and creaky.” With a sparkling combination of poems, silly songs, tweets and blogs, the trio records the trip for readers everywhere to share. Starting in St. John’s Newfoundland, where they have a “find-it” list that includes a moose and an iceberg and going all the way to the Pacific Ocean, the gang in Hey Canada! offers a delightful way to learn about vast, varied, and surprising Canada.
I received this book a couple of months ago as being apart of the Book Tour for Hey Canada! My kids and I read through it and we all absolutely loved it. My seven year old daughter more so then my four year old son. She's big on books and loved hearing me read the book about the characters traveling around Canada and also all the facts, history and different information provided in this book. I thought this book was pretty amazing and loved how much information this book actually covers about Canada.
Some of the wonderful things you'll find while reading Hey Canada are, comics, maps, beautiful illustrations throughout Canada, poems and so much more. This book is filled with information that not only will help my kids as they get older, but there were some facts about Canada that I didn't know and learned as well.
A book that is definitely worth reading for not only Canadians of any age, but also people that visit this beautiful country as well. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and am so happy I got to be apart of the book tour. Thank you Tundra Books!
