"Did you know the Jolly Jumper is a Canadian invention? What exactly is a quinzhee, anyway? Porcupines do what when they are mating? Using a blend of poetry, prose, posters, jokes, and quizzes, and featuring twenty-six original two-colour illustrations, All 'Bout Canada is a fun, informative celebration of Canada that will both educate and entertain a diverse readership. Featuring dictionary-style entries and witty poems for each letter in the alphabet, this collection of Canadian facts and anecdotes from "Aurora Borealis" to "Zellers" makes an excellent gift for avid and reluctant readers as well as parents, teachers, and librarians."-- Provided by publisher.
