A colourful picture book celebrating the diversity of Canadian children. Bright photographs present the many faces of our young people and a glimpse of the varied Canadian environments in which they live. Easy-to-read text conveys the ample space available to our children in this country and the freedom they have to grow and dream and share. I Am Canada is a fabulous catalyst for discussions about the Canadian identity and the infinite variety of our multicultural land, and it supports provincial curricula.
