On a Canadian Day: Nine Story Voyages Through History by Rona Arato
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


What better way for a young reader to truly understand another time than to get an intimate look at the daily life of another child? In "On a Canadian Day" Rona Arato introduces nine engaging children, using their stories to place young readers perfectly in nine pivotal moments in history. The book begins with the story of an Aboriginal boy on the Great Plains in 1680 as he prepares for his first buffalo hunt. From there, readers learn about a pioneer girl's day sugaring off, a boy's journey fleeing to Canada via the Underground Railroad, and more. Following each story is a photo essay that explores the era through archival images from the period. Together, the stories and essays present young readers with unparalleled snapshots of life in other places and times.
