Additional Notes

From The Publisher*

Le Canada, c'est moi est un poème en vers libres de Heather Patterson, publié pour la première fois en 1996. Le revoici dans un livre tout carton, parfait pour une nouvelle génération de petits lecteurs. Les différents types d'illustrations et le texte limpide illustrent les grands espaces et la liberté que ce pays offre aux enfants pour grandir, rêver et partager. Idéal pour lancer une discussion sur l'identité canadienne, le multiculturalisme et l'infinie variété des paysages du Canada.

Review Quote*Praise for I Am Canada:

"Each spread is unique and recognizable to fans of these artists, yet the overall presentation is surprisingly cohesive, unified by the themes of diversity, landscapes, and positivity. ... I Am Canada is a beautiful book that belongs in all Canadian collections. Highly Recommended." - CM: Canadian Review of Materials

"This charming book is a celebration of both Canada and Canadian illustrators from across the country, with varied backgrounds, styles and perspectives . . . an inspired interpretation of this lovely poem, a cohesive vision of what it means to be Canadian, created by 13 remarkable illustrators. The diversity in illustration styles fittingly reflects the diversity of our home and native land - its landscapes, flora and fauna and, of course, its people. Each illustration is a joy to behold and will captivate readers young and old. The cheerful, buoyant children who dance across the pages are explorers and dreamers; they are sharing, playing, learning and contemplating. [T]his is a perfect book for our sesquicentennial, a wonderful resource kindling discussion about the deeper meanings of being Canadian." - Canadian Children's Book News, Red Leaf Literature reviews
