Loonies and Toonies: A Canadian Number Book

By: Michael Ulmer

$19.95

What do Shakespeare, salmon, sled dogs and the Queen of England have in common? They all play a part in Canadian life, and they are just a few of the topics covered in this book.

Taking its name from the one-dollar and two-dollar coins in Canadian currency, Loonies and Toonies provides a well-rounded view of the country’s past and present.

Product Description

This virtual tour briefs children on the metric system, as well as on Canada’s ceremonial link to the British monarchy. En route, they’ll be inspired by stories of Terry Fox’s courageous run for cancer research and the undefeated record of the Bluenose sailing schooner.

Before the trip ends, they’ll also discover why its not a good idea to go over Niagara Falls in a barrel!
