Worth 3X's the asking price. I am going to buy 2 more for my Canadian friends!!!!!
Unusual in a picture book, the illustrator, Ian Wallace, takes the opportunity to provide the reader with insights into the historical background, symbolism, and vision of each illustration. These notes, together with a brief history of the Canadian Pacific Railway at the end of the book, can help teachers and parents use the verses and artwork to generate an interesting discussion with young learners about how railroad construction has contributed to economic development through the movement of people, goods, and even information across long distances. Equally important is the book's lesson about the high costs not only in financial terms, but also in terms of environmental disruptions, discriminatory treatment of the Chinese workers, and the loss of land for Canada's first people.
