Hey Canada! by Vivien Bowers – Book Review

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. 

The book combines narrative, poems, photos, comics about historical events such as the battle at Fortress Louisburg, maps (including provincial flags, birds, and flowers), in a lively, easily accessible format. Not only great fun to read, this is a valuable resource for young Canadians and for visitors across the country.

This book is full of amazing pictures, fun facts, games, and much more.  My three year old really loves to look at the pictures, point out the animals, and search for the “clue’s”.  My husband being american, thought it was an interesting read.  I want to keep this book for when my kids are in school.  Social studies homework has this book written all over it.
