This review was written for LibraryThing Early Reviewers.
This wonderful collection of Canadian inventions of all kinds (including many unexpected ones) is an excellent way to celebrate Canada's 150th anniversary. Lovingly illustrated, each invention is described with a short and engaging text that should appeal to anyone age 6 and up. We read it multiple times with my 7yo daughter and it gained a spot on her shelf of favourite books. A good gift idea! ( )

A bunch of short descriptions of Canadian inventions, all told with glowing pride and accompanied by very cute illustrations. I even learned some things. A charming, quick read. ( )

I love the style of this book, with quick bite sized pieces of information about innovators we don't hear about often in the USA. This would be a great addition to a school or public library collection in Canada, or one elsewhere to provide representation for students of Canadian decent.

This is a wonderful edition of the book with lovely illustrations for kids. Really glad I discovered this gem and have gifted a few copies to friends and signed my copy for my nephew #Canada150 ( )

A great non-fiction book about the innovative creativity of Canadians. The illustrations are bright and attractive, the text and topics chosen interesting and engaging. I particularly liked the inclusion of a few First Nation innovations which made this a great book for any child (or adult for that matter). ( )
