THE COM­FORT OF YOUR OWN HOME AS YOU FLIP THROUGH THESE BOOKS. WARN­ING: YOU’LL WANT TO TRAVEL WHEN YOU’RE DONE!

Road­trips are al­ways bet­ter with a friend. Car­son the dog and his BFF An­nie Ma­gruder travel from Canada’s West Coast to the East Coast, ex­pe­ri­enc­ing ev­ery­thing Canada has to of­fer!

On May 3, 2016, the coun­try wit­nessed a ter­ri­fy­ing wild­fire make its way through Fort McMur­ray, Al­berta. Since then, coura­geous sto­ries have come to light, in­clud­ing this true tale about a ger­bil’s res­cue, a car­ing com­mu­nity and a brave mom who faced the wild­fire to save Thun­der the Great. The bonus when you pur­chase this book? A por­tion from the sales will be do­nated to the Fort McMur­ray SPCA.

Heather Pat­ter­son’s sim­ple, yet pow­er­ful, 1996 poem I Am Canada is paired with gor­geous art­work from 13 tal­ented Cana­dian il­lus­tra­tors, such as Ruth Ohi, Danielle Daniel, Geneviève Côté, Cale Atkin­son, Eva Camp­bell and more. Ev­ery page is a trib­ute to the great coun­try in which we live. The va­ri­ety of creative styles through­out are beau­ti­ful and di­verse – just like Canada.
