From the Publisher
Each year Canada hosts 35 million foreign tourists who spend over $16 billion. A Moose in a Maple Tree is a natural overseas gift and souvenir for visitors with its use of iconic Canadianisms: skiers, sled dogs, salmon, mounties, lobsters, beavers, whales, hockey sticks, totem poles, snowmen, polar bears - and of course, the moose - all ultimately gathered together in a Canadian maple tree. A Moose in a Maple Tree will capture the imagination of young readers with its quirky twist on the original Christmas song while providing lively, colourful images created by Toronto graphic designer and illustrator, Jennifer Harrington. The book can be sung or read aloud and is designed as a learning tool that will instigate discussion about all things Canadian. The book is also a great tool for young readers learning to count.
