Here's a delightful bedtime board book for young Canadians, and youngsters enjoying a visit to Canada. The authors (politely of course) take little ones from coast to coast to coast, highlighting attractions along the way.

We start at the Atlantic Ocean with a 'Good morning, fishing boat, setting out to sea.' In the East, Newfoundlanders look down on icebergs, while Western families cycle the seawall in Vancouver.

We see maple sap in springtime and streetcars in Toronto; kayak in the Bay of Fundy and read Anne of Green Gables in Prince Edward Island. We listen to the Montreal Jazz Festival and the roar of Niagara Falls. There's Canada Day in Ottawa; Haida Gwaii totem poles; Dinosaur Provincial Park; the Rockies; vieux Quebec; the Inuit; the Northern Lights; and much more.

It's all a bit eclectic but definitely all Canadian. Parents and older siblings will enjoy reading Good Night Canada to little ones, and it might just arouse their interest in seeing more of the country they live in.
