Canada has lots of forests, lots of grasslands, lots of rolling hills and lots and lots of north.
But did you know Canada’s most southern point, Middle Island, Lake Erie, Ontario, is at the same latitude as northern California and the south of France?

Finish up with some excellent books on Canada:
- Even Canadians sometimes think their history is short and boring, but it’s not. For instance did you know Canada had an armed rebellion against the British too?
- David Thompson was a famous Canadian explorer and trapper. We have a map for him too.
- Lucy Maud Montgomery and her Anne of Green Gables books clinched it for me, I am officially in love with Canada in general and Prince Edward Island in particular.
