What a great book to introduce my students to Canadian geography!

Lovely introduction to Canadian geography. (DPLjennyp and DPLChandra need to read this book.)

Annie and her canine companion, Carson, take a roadtrip across Canada to visit Annie's sister Elsie who is sick and could use a little cheering up!

The best friends travel from Tofino through Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, PEI, Nova Scotia, and Newfoundland!

The endpapers trace Annie and Carson's journey on a map from the west coast to the east coast--through the Rocky Mountains, the Prairies, Niagara Falls, to Newfoundland’s Witless Bay. Readers can visualize the Canadian cities Annie and Carson stop at along the way!

One of my favourite picture books of summer! Linda Bailey celebrates the bonds of friendship and sisterhood, and the vast beauty of Canada.

Fabulous story of Annie and her dog, Carson who are travelling from Tofino, British Columbia to visit Elsie, Annie's ailing sister in Newfoundland. As they travel and camp through each province, Carson learns about Canada. Annie promises Carson a special surprise at the end of the trip. He thinks it is the beauty of the Atlantic Ocean but instead, the surprise is his brother, Digby.

One of my favourite parts was when all the characters were reunited, their togetherness helped Elsie get better.

Follow the inside cover pages to show your little reader, the trip they take across Canada.

Ironically, saw this on an American talk show as a great summer read for a car trip!

A great children's bedtime story (20 min. tops). A Canadian adventure, driven by a heartfelt purpose. The illustrations add to the book. Highly recommended for youngsters who still appreciate a bedtime story.

This is the perfect picture book to take along on a summer road trip. It is a super cute story about a dog that crossed Canada with his family.
