about

British Columbia is filled with supernatural beauty and fascination. Its diverse wildlife population includes killer whales, giant Pacific octopus, cougars, moose, grizzlies and spirit bears, a rare black bear that, because of a recessive gene, has all-white fur. Children will be awed to learn of legendary creatures reportedly sighted in British Columbia, such as the serpent-like lake demon called Ogopogo and the big-footed beast known as Sasquatch. They will also learn of Canada's Iceman, an ancient hunter whose body and clothing were nearly perfectly preserved in a glacier for more than 550 years. Capturing the essence of the richly varied regions and islands of British Columbia, S is for Spirit Bear takes children on a journey they will never forget.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful colorful photos with descriptions to educate I enjoyed the Ferryboat facts (i.e. 22 millions passengers a year - 2006) and that 21 babies had been delivered on board! Learned that the Ogopogo is a protected species. Great recognition on Canadians; Bill Reid, Emily Carr, Steve Nash, Terry Fox. Totem Poles attract many tourists to Vancouver.
