One Is CanadaBook - 1999
In a book characterized by both energy and elegance, Maxine Trottier and Bill Slavin manage to define Canadian geography, introduce the First Peoples and the Group of Seven, show how ten provinces join to create one country-all in a read-aloud experience that's pure enjoyment.
Each lyrical stanza builds upon the previous one. Each illustration captures Canada on a grand and awe-inspiring scale yet, rich with whimsical details, gives kids a zoom-lens view that will encourage questions and discussion. Gathering momentum, One Is Canada lifts off the page in an unabashed celebration of a land, its heritage, culture and people.
Detailed "Notes on Canada" at the end of the book provide the perfect launching pad for discussion, instruction and further exploration.
