Editorial Reviews


This is the latest book in a wonderful series that helps children understand the different lives that children lead around the world
- Literacy, Families and Learning

A Canadian Year and A Kiwi Year by Tania McCartney & Tina Snerling (EK Books). Two new books in this popular series which takes children through a year in the life of children in different countries. Lots of fascinating and informative facts and colourful, detailed illustrations. Great books to read before travelling or just to know how other children live.
- Pinerolo

"What I really like about this hard-covered book as well as A Kiwi Year is the layout. The sentences are short yet informative making it ideal for even children of young age to understand. The illustrations are bright and give readers a fantastic glimpse into all of the wonderful things there are to do and celebrate in Canada.”
- In The Good Books

"These books are fabulous for schools. They are educational books kids will want to pick up and explore, and EK Books provides teaching notes on their website to give you inspiration for lessons and activities.”
- Kids' Book Review

"Highly recommended for primary libraries – you really must have the whole series. Where are we travelling to next I wonder? … What an absolutely marvelous way for us to spread the joy of inclusivity, promote cross-cultural understandings and foster peaceful relations with others.”
- Just So Books

"Being so very different to Australia our kids love reading all about this foreign country, they can’t imagine what -30°C feels like but they sure get very excited about the sound of ice hockey, sled races, skiing and riding the toboggan. Everyone is chatting about igloos and ice hotels, we discover the meaning of Inuit and why houses in North Canada are built on stilts … Once you’ve finished A Canadian Year you’ll be a true Canada connoisseur."
- Hip Little One

"... help to generate an attitude of tolerance and inclusiveness. These books would be important resources in any school or classroom library. "
- Reading Time

“a lively overview of the sights, sports, foods and places that make this country so unique.”
- Postmedia News Canada
