“All Across Canada” is divided into three sections, each covering a major region of Canada, and the individual provinces or territories comprising that region. In “Wandering Through the West with Wally,” “Hiking Around Hudson Bay with Holly,” and “Ambling Through the Atlantic Provinces with Andy,” each character takes the reader on a journey to the different provinces and/or territories where they meet their respective “friends.” Each of the “friends” is named for the capital of each province or territory (for example, “Victoria,” who lives in British Columbia). A colourful map, fun and informative poem, and artwork accompany each cartoon “friend.” Highlighted are various topographical, industrial, and agricultural features, and the specific location of each province or territory within Canada.
“All Across Canada” is a useful educational aid for teachers, home educators, parents, and students. This book could help acquaint children with Canada, familiarize them with various cultural and geographical aspects, and at the same time allow them to enjoy the process of learning.
