Gr 4-7ÄA glimpse at Canada from coast to coast. Each province and territory is treated in two double-page spreads that include a clear, eye-catching map and an abundance of illustrations. The text is concise and readable. Boxed facts give statistical information, while other sections describe the coat of arms, flag, flower, bird, tree, and landscape. The historical highlights are written to inform, intrigue, and interest readers as well as to give them a general view of the changing history of each region. Unfortunately, the illustrations are of a poor quality. Surely the time is over for a colorful, decorative-only approach to nonfiction for children that features fuzzy, overgeneralized renderings of landscapes, animals, and people. They reflect a lack of talent in drawing people, lack of research, and a poor integration of art and text. This one is embarrassing.ÄRonald Jobe, University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada
