As the pages turn on bright scenes and changing seasons across the country, rhyming text cheerily greets the sights and sounds of a Canadian morning.
From a pair of moose spied through an open tent flap at sunrise to a gaggle of Canada geese at a school bus stop, a morning game of shinny on an outdoor rink, and checking the sap buckets at a maple syrup farm, these inviting pages capture a familiar Canada that will delight young readers.
Adorable children and animals fill the pages, with scenes to pore over again and again. Each spread includes a dog, a stuffed teddy bear, and a Canadian flag for readers to find. A perfect companion to Goodnight, Canada!
