Description

Send out a good morning to young Canadians from coast to coast in this companion to Goodnight, Canada!

As the pages turn on bright scenes and changing seasons across the country, rhyming text cheerily greets the sights and sounds of a Canadian morning.

From a pair of moose spied through an open tent flap at sunrise to a gaggle of Canada geese at a school bus stop, a morning game of shinny on an outdoor rink, and checking the sap buckets at a maple syrup farm, these inviting pages capture a familiar Canada that will delight young readers.

Adorable children and animals fill the pages, with scenes to pore over again and again. Each spread includes a dog, a stuffed teddy bear, and a Canadian flag for readers to find. A perfect companion to Goodnight, Canada!
