3 Ways to Celebrate Canada with DK Canada Books

With Canada 150 upon us, it is a year of celebrating Canada in so many different ways. It can be done in so many different ways, either inside of your home or on adventures across the country. DK Canada has books on numerous topics that help Canadians of all types celebrate Canada in the way they love best.

I was asked to choose three books my family would use to celebrate Canada in our own way. The titles we reviewed were:

Eyewitness Travel Guide: Canada

Canada is such a beautiful country to explore. Now that our kids are more used to travelling longer distances, we want them to discover as much of Canada as possible. Eyewitness Travel Guide: Canada allows travellers to plan their adventures across this amazing nation, whether it is to another part of the province to another part of the country. This title shows readers the best attractions found in Canada’s cities for travellers to explore. This book also shares different aspects of Canada, from its size, vegetation, people, government landscape and geology.

It was really great how each regions and areas featured in this title shows various different maps. This allows readers to get an idea of what there is to do and see. For each of the attractions, there is also icons that let users know how they can get around to each of these sites, whether it is by car, walking or public transit. So much information is shared about each site featured, it made me start a list of places across Canada I did not know about that I now have visit.

My kids are cat lovers and really enjoyed learning about the variety of facts shared in this book. We literally learned about cats from the inside out. They were amazed to find out why cats do what they do, as well as to the purpose of some of their traits and physical attributes. I loved learning about how people have geared and cheer felines throughout history and the role they play in our history. It is great for readers of all ages to crack open and enjoy.

There is so much to discover in this book. I was happy that this title was broken down into two main sections: “Creating the Garden” and “Maintaining the Garden,” then divided into subsections so it is easier to build and care for their gardening. My other half and I are really interested in growing succulents and creating a greenhouse so the tips found in this book are helping us to plan and create these spaces in our home.
