Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 155074965X, Hardcover)

From earth-shattering innovations and amazing inventions to achievements in government, culture and history, Canadians have played a major role in shaping the world. With almost 150 entries -- in categories such as technology, nature, transportation and food -- this title in the Kids Book of series explores the many events and discoveries that are firsts in Canada or the world. Photographs, coins, stamps, paintings and patent drawings give the book distinctive visual appeal. As well, quotes, profiles, fact boxes and a timeline reveal further information about these unique achievements. Kids can read about * the first stamp in the world to feature an animal * the world's first chocolate bar * the first dinosaur bones found in Canada * the first light bulb ever -- yes, it was invented in Canada, and not by Thomas Edison!
