From Our Editors

Poetry is yell-out-loud fun with this rollicking collection of rhymes and songs for kids, all about Canada! Illustrated with colour and energy by Scot Ritchie, Eenie Meenie Manitoba features symbols that show when to clap, skip or bounce a ball along to the featured poem. Robert Heidbreder throws in plenty of silliness with such wacky characters as Lanky Hank, Ogopogo, some rowdy Nova Scotian lobsters and a couple of tickle-happy Great Lake bears.
