Did you know that you can walk on the ocean floor at the Hopewell Rocks in New Brunswick? Or that there was once a UFO sighting in PEI? Or that someone found a real Maud Lewis painting in a thrift shop? Journalist Sarah Sawler, author of the bestselling 100 Things You Don't Know About Nova Scotia, has collected the most interesting, surprising, and bizarre facts that you never knew about Atlantic Canada, just for kids. 100 Things You Don't Know About Atlantic Canada (for Kids) includes fun photos and helpful explanations that go with all the wacky and weird trivia that is sure to entertain and educate. As an added bonus, each 'thing' is paired with an interactive sidebar suggesting fun family activities, and places to visit.
"This book will be enjoyed by all Atlantic Canadians who have an interest in the history and places of the region. It would be a great book to take on a holiday through the provinces of Atlantic Canada. It would also be a great book to share with elementary students who are studying Canadian social studies and would be a jumping off point for further research about some of the topics covered in the book." —Resource Links (Pouch Cove, NF)
"This book should be well received by sports fans in Nova Scotia as well as others throughout the country who have an interest in individual athletes. The book is well done and will find a place in school and public libraries as well as in the home libraries of many sports fans." Resource Links (Pouch Cove, NF)
"Sawler's book can be picked up and dived into at any point making it suitable for reluctant readers (especially those addicted to world record and trivia style books) and those requiring high interest paired with low vocabulary. The only fault to be found is the "for kids" designation as this book will surely garner many adult fans as well." —Canadian Review of Materials
"Well researched using a variety of libraries, archives and museums, the author even suggests family activities, trips or websites to encourage children to learn more." —Canadian Teacher Magazine
