Editorial Review

Praise for I Am Canada:

“Each spread is unique and recognizable to fans of these artists, yet the overall presentation is surprisingly cohesive, unified by the themes of diversity, landscapes, and positivity. ... I Am Canada is a beautiful book that belongs in all Canadian collections. Highly Recommended.” — CM: Canadian Review of Materials

“This charming book is a celebration of both Canada and Canadian illustrators from across the country, with varied backgrounds, styles and perspectives . . . an inspired interpretation of this lovely poem, a cohesive vision of what it means to be Canadian, created by 13 remarkable illustrators. The diversity in illustration styles fittingly reflects the diversity of our home and native land — its landscapes, flora and fauna and, of course, its people. Each illustration is a joy to behold and will captivate readers young and old. The cheerful, buoyant children who dance across the pages are explorers and dreamers; they are sharing, playing, learning and contemplating. [T]his is a perfect book for our sesquicentennial, a wonderful resource kindling discussion about the deeper meanings of being Canadian.” — Canadian Children’s Book News, Red Leaf Literature reviews
