School Library Journal Review

Gr 5-9-An excellent introduction to the country's geography, history, people, government, and economy. Carried forward from the first edition (1989) are the easy-to-read and informative text, maps, charts, and full-color photographs. The revision offers current data, as well as updated back matter, including an annotated reading list and Web sites, as well as lists of famous Canadians and Canadian tourist attractions. Braun goes beyond the simple retelling of facts by providing readers with insights into such issues as the French/English conflict, antagonism between provinces, and the struggles Canada faces to remain distinct from its more populous American neighbor. The inclusion of this type of information sets this book apart from other titles, such as the Canadian entries in Bobbie Kalman's "The Lands, Peoples, and Cultures" series (Crabtree, 2001). Braun's attractive volume will appeal to report writers and leisure readers alike.-Robyn Walker, Elgin Court Public School, St. Thomas, Ontario, Canada (c) Copyright 2010.
