I am not the biggest fan of non-fiction books and unfortunately this book
didnít change anything. It didnít have enough detailed pictures and some of
the illustrations seemed incomplete to me. On the plus side though, I think
this was 10 times better than going to a museum. It was filled with more
stories than facts. This book brought you to places all over Canada, yet it
was contained to only 64 pages. I felt that Canadaís history could be made
into a much longer book. Since it was only 64 pages, I think this would be
suitable for a reader aged 8 and above. It is a great study tool and as
pretty close to an archaeology dig than most people will get.
Digging Canadian History 3 stars.
