Praise For…

[E]ach letter provides a showcase for a Canadian icon of one sort or another... Illustrator Per-Henrik Gurth keeps it simple, with bright colors and strong outlines around minimally defined objects in paintings of the Calgary Stampede, dogsleds, hockey, the Yukon - “where the Northern Lights glow,” and last, a splendiferous Zamboni.—Globe and Mail

ABC books are often a child's first introduction to words and pictures on a page and have been produced in infinite variety. So it is a pleasant surprise to discover a fresh approach in the The ABC of Canada ... [T]he characters (beavers, moose, and bears) and the situations [are] distinctly Canadian. Where else would you find Z for Zamboni, X for Cross Country Skiing and R for RCMP? [T]his is an ABC book that manages to be instructive, attractive, and nationalistic all in one.—Winnipeg Free Press
