Synopsis

As a result of the success of M is for Moose, Canadian children can rhyme off their ABCs with images of ducks, kayaks, moose, and Lake Winnipeg shimmering in their imaginations. Now children can learn their numbers with Canada Counts. On these pages, new artwork illustrates numbers from 1 to 20, as well as other important Canadian numbers such as 1867 and 1982. There may be 1 walking boy, but there are 3 territories, 4 seasons, and 9 Supreme Court justices.

With Canada Counts, Charles Pachter has written another love letter to our country.
