Discovering Canada introduces the young reader to the second largest country in the world: Canada. It provides an understanding of what Canada is by taking children on a journey across the country, exploring the distinguishing characteristics of the provinces and territories. Children, aged 9-12, are introduced to political maps and basic geographic terms such as direction, latitude and longitude.
