Description

Celebrate the 150th birthday of Canada with a closer look at its majestic anthem!

A new generation of young readers will experience the 100-year evolution of the Canadian national anthem, from its composition in 1880 to the moment it was proclaimed the national anthem in 1980.

Line by line, in both official languages, and accompanied by sheet music, "O Canada" is brought to life by beautiful collage illustrations.

A fun and lively way to learn about our country's interesting history and the song that makes us "true north strong and free"!
