From the Publisher
Original, funny and distinctly Canadian, Eenie Meenie Manitoba is a playful collection of 37 rhymes, chants and poems. From lobsters and maple syrup to skating on the Rideau Canal and grinding prairie wheat, images of Canada fill every page. Plus, many of the poems are accompanied by sidebars suggesting actions -- such as clapping, skipping and ball-bouncing. This collection invites kids to have fun and get actively involved in poetry.

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.
This collection of playful poems will appeal to the spunky spirit in every member of the family.
