I purchased this board book for my next door neighbor’s 2.5 year old daughter for Halloween rather than giving her candy that she just didn’t need. SHE LOVES IT!!!!
She has had her mother reading it to her over and over again ever since she received it. I LOVE IT because it not only teaches children their alphabet, but it also teaches them words that are synonymous with our wonderful and unique country of Canada.
Some of the words include B is for Beaver, I is for INUKSHUK, H is for HOCKEY, L is for LOONIE and Z is for ZAMBONI. Where else but in our glorious country would children learn these words at such a young age?
I believe that it is not only important to instill a love of reading in children from a very young age, but I also believe that it is important to teach kids about the country in which they live. They should know how unique it is and how lucky they are to have been born into such a great, multicultural company where tolerance is the rule, not the exception.
I rate this book as 5 out of 5 Stars.
This beautiful board book has also been chosen as one of the TOP 25 READS FOR FALL by TODAY’S PARENT MAGAZINE.
This book is a MUST HAVE for everyone with small children as well as for people who just love Canada and want to celebrate some of our iconic words and images in the lead up to Canada’s 150th Birthday in 2017.
