Back to school

Alexander Finbow - Monday, September 14, 2015

Where did summer go? Feels like it slipped into the past far too quickly this year. On the plus side, September does mean that learning is once again front and centre in the minds of many people young and old and whether you have great teachers or a lunatic who does a great praying mantis impression, finding the right learning materials is important for everyone. For Canadians, and those interested in learning about Canadian history, we have three books perfect for you. Our latest publication, The Loxleys and Confederation hardcover graphic novel, is the story of Canada Day written By Mark Zuehlke and illustrated by Claude St. Aubin. It's a great gateway story to finding out how Canada became a country against the backdrop of the American civil war, the Fenian raids, trade embargoes and immigrant expansion across the north. Canadian Materials magazine called it RECOMMENDED in their review this month,'The Loxleys and Confederation will appeal to young readers, including reluctant readers who may be more comfortable with a graphic novel rather than a more text-heavy history-based work', here's the link to read the full review.

Watching the online arguments that kicked off today after the British embassy in Washington tweeted a picture of a commemorative cake, it appears that the event and the war still provokes passionate debate on all sides. Well, those that have actually heard of it that is.
