Carson Crosses Canada
Carson is a dog who loves a great adventure, so when his human, Annie, tells him that they are going on a cross country trip to visit Annie’s sister, Elsie in Newfoundland, he could not resist!
We cannot think of a better way to travel this great country than to set out from Canada’s West Coast and visit the East Coast.
The Talent behind the Book
Author Linda Bailey paints a beautiful picture of each and every province that Annie and Carson drive through. She highlights one very special spot for the reader to learn more about and enjoy. It brings a lot of history, culture and a lot of geography in every province. Illustrator Kass Reich paints beautiful pictures that make you feel like you have been suddenly inserted into each province, breathing in the air and experiencing the site. It takes a real talent to do this.

This book is so entertaining and something that children (and adults) of all ages would enjoy and learn something. Our favorite parts is the way the beauty of Saskatchewan is painted to the young readers. It is such a beautiful province and the fields were exactly what made us fall in love with it, so many years ago. We are glad that this will be shared with the readers also! We also loved how Quebec Cities famous Tourtieres were shared with the reader. Unbeknownst to many Canadians, this dish is a Canadian staple for deliciousness but also to fill the bellies of many hungry people during those cold, harsh winter months of early Canada. It’s a piece of French Culture and Canadian history.
