Original, funny and distinctly Canadian, Eenie Meenie Manitoba is a playful collection of 37 rhymes, chants and poems. From lobsters and maple syrup to skating on the Rideau Canal and grinding prairie wheat, images of Canada fill every page. Plus, many of the poems are accompanied by sidebars suggesting actions --- such as clapping, skipping and ball-bouncing. This collection invites kids to have fun and get actively involved in poetry.
