Favourite Canadian Book (s)


It is too hard to just pick one … so I have decided to name several books that we love.

My oldest who is 9 years old really enjoys the books Canadian flyer adventure series; they are great chapter books that teach some history of Canadian events.


My 7 year old enjoys the short stories in the two books by  Canadian author Ian James Corlett; E is for ethics and E is for Environment. Great short stoies that get kids to think about ethics and how to be kinder to the environment.


My 4 year old  currently loves all books by Canadian author Melanie Watt. The scaredy squirrel series  is particularly entertaining to her. Actually I have to be honest all three of my kids and myself included love her stories.


Then I have to have an honourable mention which are more work book type books rather then story books.

The map books by George Quinn and Debbie Sherman; they are absolutely awesome and my kids love the worksheets in them and they have learned so much from them.


This is a small sample of some of our favs.

Do you have one favourite in particular or many? Honestly I am not sure I could ever pick just one favourite book.
