A Tribute To Our Beautiful Nation – I Am Canada

Did you know that we are celebrating Canada’s 150th year? I have been enjoying the special things people have been doing to celebrate. I mean this country is just beautiful and it deserves to be shown in the best light.

I Am Canada

I AM Canada

Simple text describes the ample space available to our children in this country, and the freedom they have to grow and dream and share. With artwork from 13 of Canada’s finest illustrators, each page is a celebration and a reminder of the infinite variety of our home and native land.

Heather Patterson’s free verse poem I Am Canada, originally published in 1996, gets new life in this beautiful, illustrated hardcover timed to celebrate both Canada’s 150th year and Scholastic Canada’s 60th anniversary.

A beautiful picture book featuring artwork by Canada’s finest illustrators!  A true-north tribute to our nation and its children, from coast to coast to coast!

I Am Canada

My son and I enjoyed reading each and every page in I Am Canada. As we turned the pages it seemed that the words came to life. I felt empowered, lucky and so very grateful for the country we live in. This book is a great addition to any bookshelf. Knowing that 13 of Canada’s finest illustrators got together to create an amazing book shows you how beautiful Canada is. Each and every person who worked on this book is so different but yet it all flowed.

This is a book I know we will cherish each and every time we read it.

I Am Canada
