Description

See below for English description.

Cette magnifique édition reliée, publiée initialement sous forme de recueil photographique, fait revivre la prose poétique de Heather Patterson. Sa sortie coïncide avec le 150e anniversaire du Canada et le 60e anniversaire de Scholastic Canada.

Les superbes illustrations de plus d'une douzaine des meilleurs illustrateurs du Canada et le texte simple rendent à merveille l'immensité du pays et la liberté dont les enfants bénéficient pour s'épanouir et rêver. Un excellent point de départ pour une réflexion sur l'identité canadienne et sur la diversité des milieux culturels que l'on y trouve.

 

Heather Patterson's free verse poem Le Canada, c'est moi, originally published in a photographic version, gets new life in this beautiful, illustrated hardcover timed to celebrate both Canada's 150th year and Scholastic Canada's 60th.

Beautiful illustrations and simple text seek to convey the ample space available to our children in this country, and the freedom they have to grow and dream and share. A catalyst for discussions about the Canadian identity and the infinite variety of our multicultural land.

Original title: I Am Canada
