Description

A kid's reference featuring facts and trivia focusing on Canada's records, achievements and gee-whiz accomplishments.

This newly designed, patriotic celebration of Canada's superlatives, complete with 600 color photographs, presents young readers with a visual feast of facts, figures and feats that make Canada unique.

Covering everything from Drake to doughnuts, Canadian Geographic Canada for Kids is packed with awesome trivia and cool facts. Whether it be Bianca Andreescu's amazing U.S. Open victory or Aaron Gregg's chainsaw juggling world record, no stone is left unturned in finding out the country's fascinating tidbits.

Here's a sampling of some facts you'll find in this eye-popping volume:

The Fastest Trip Across Canada on Foot: Al Howie of England took 72 days, 10 hours and 23 minutes, according to Guinness World Records. The 7,295.5 km trek from St. John's to Victoria took place from June 21 to September 1, 1991. Most Top 10 Songs in One Year: In 2018, Canadian rapper Drake dethroned the Beatles as the artist with the most Top 10 songs on Billboard's Hot 100 chart in a single year when his song "MIA" reached number 5 on the list -- Drake's 12th single to reach the Top Ten list that year.

With facts and figures for every province and territory and covering an endless array of topics -- from the country's largest land masses to its smallest residents -- Canadian Geographic Canada for Kids is a fun, fact-packed book that's perfect for all ages.

Editorial Review

[Review of previous edition:] A great gift for the young trivia lover, and even better, it is all about Canada. Includes tons of photographs on categories including geography, science, and history. Kids can look up their hometown or favourite sports hero. This book can be read and shared by ages nine through adult.
