Discover some uniquely Canadian celebrations!

It's clear that Canada has a lot to celebrate. From First Nations powwows and potlatches, through the traditional festivities of the early settlers, up to the way we now mark birthdays and public holidays, Canadian Celebrations will explore the many ways we celebrate.

Five brightly illustrated chapters cover National Aboriginal Day, Thanksgiving, Celebrate Canada (including Canada Day, Saint Jean-Baptiste Day, and Canadian Muticulturalism Day), the Calgary Stampede, and the Quebec Carnival.

A wonderful introduction to uniquely Canadian celebrations for young readers, in this fine addition to the Canada Close Up non-fiction series.
