A bedtime book that opens children's minds to the wonders of the world around them.

Award-winning Canadian author and illustrator Andrea Beck has created a unique gift for parents as they wind their little ones down for bedtime. Goodnight, Canada inspires a sense of community, as a child who lives in Newfoundland lies in bed wondering about other children in his country and the world at large. He quietly bids a goodnight to them all, and to Canada itself, province by province, territory by territory.

The colourful art decorating each page celebrates the diversity of Canada's people and key features of each province - from the quiet wheat fields of Saskatchewan to a fisherman's wharf in Nova Scotia. So many details brighten each page, bringing Canada to life and creating a picture book children will want to go back to again and again!
