Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great book and great series This book (and whole series) is just ideal for kids 6-11. It imparts just enough information without being overwhelming, in a really clear way. And the illustrations are beautiful. This series introduced my kids to Canadian animals in a way that made them want to know more. We started with Bears.
