"Thought breeds thought; children familiar with great thoughts take as naturally to thinking for themselves as the well-nourished body takes to growing; and we must bear in mind that growth, physical, intellectual, moral, spiritual, is the sole end of education." ~ Charlotte Mason

Book Sharing Monday: The Kids Book of Canadian History

 We are starting on Canadian History this year!  I am using Donna Ward's Canadian History Bundle.  This book came with the program.  It's a beautiful book, starts out with Canada's first people right up to the Trudeau Years.  The information is informative and the illustrations colourful and engaging.  They will be reading this book 2-3 times a week as part of their history program.  It's easy to read and follow.  There is enough information to provide a clear picture of the historical event while at the same time, not wieghing the reader down with needless details.  The kids appear to be enjoying it already, leafing through the pictures.  They are ready to start learning about their own country's historical events and how that has and does impact their lives as Canadian citizens! I'm pleased to have this book to help that process along.
