    Oh, what a delightful picture book. What a great way to show kids, and teach them, about what Canada is made up of, just in time for the 150 anniversary of the articles of confederation. (When Canada became independent.)

    The story is basic. Carson and his master have to travel from the west coast to the east coast by car. At each stop along the way, we get to see the features that that area is famous for. From the Rockies, to the prairies to Niagara Falls, to finally the islands of Prince Edward

From the Rockies, to the prairies to Niagara Falls, to finally the islands of Prince Edward Island. This is great for Canadian children, as I doubt there are many books like this. And this is also good for American children to learn about all the provinces, and what is special about each one.

    Having driven across the United States, when I was in grade school, I would have loved to have something like this to compare the sights I saw with the sites that Carson and Annie, his owner saw as well.

    Plus, Carson is cute, and silly.

    Thanks to Netgalley for making this book available for an honest review.

    'Carson Crosses Canada' by Linda Bailey with illustrations by Kass Reich is a pretty cute story about a long road trip across a beautiful country.

    Annie lives on the West Coast of Canada in British Columbia with her dog Carson. One day, she gets a letter from her sister Elsie, and Annie decides to take a road trip to visit her sister. Carson doesn't have a suitcase, but he's happy when Annie remembers to pack his toy, Squeaky Chicken.

    Annie promises Carson that he will have a surprise, but as they travel through big trees and hoodoos and plains, Carson can't figure out what it could be.

    Annie is an intrepid traveler and Carson is the perfect travel companion. The art is beautiful in this picture book. Canada is a big, beautiful country and that shows as Annie and Carson make their journey. This is a really cute story and would be a nice read along for preschoolers.

    I received a review copy of this ebook from Tundra Books, Penguin Random House Canada, and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this ebook.

    Read for my son. He doesn't like it much. Not a lot of adventures. The cover has the car, he expected there'll be car and road trip adventures but it was about the dog instead. Thanks to NetGalley for the review copy. Our opinions are honest.

    This is a cute picture book that will introduce young ones to the wonderful country of Canada. It gives them a taste of each of the geographic areas of the country and tells something about it while Annie Magruder and her dog Carson take a cross country trip. Annie and Carson are travelling from Tofino in the west to her sister's in the east. The provinces they travel through are not named, but it could become a guessing game with the children based on the descriptions. It is just a simple story

    This is a cute picture book that will introduce young ones to the wonderful country of Canada. It gives them a taste of each of the geographic areas of the country and tells something about it while Annie Magruder and her dog Carson take a cross country trip. Annie and Carson are travelling from Tofino in the west to her sister's in the east. The provinces they travel through are not named, but it could become a guessing game with the children based on the descriptions. It is just a simple story, but the illustrations are great. They are watercolour drawings that are bright, colourful and whimsical showing the trip across the country. This is great for Canadian children, as they will learn something special about each of the areas of the country. This would be a great read aloud in a primary classroom just learning about Canada. The publisher generously provided me with a copy of this book via Netgalley.

    Carson Crosses Canada by Linda Bailey is a cute children's book about a trip across Canada. Annie makes the journey with her dog from the Pacific to the Atlantic across Canada as they sight see. It's colorful and educational. Great for early readers.

    When Annie knows her sister Elsie needs her, Carson finds himself crossing Canada in her van. They visit many different places, and have lot of fun. But the best is meeting Elsie, and Digby, Carson's brother.

    The illustrations are colorful and funny, and the story is cute. There is not too much going on, though.

    2.5 stars.

    Wonderful illustrations in this simple story about a trip across Canada. Light on the details of the places they stop, had hoped to learn more about the Canadian provinces and what they have to offer as travel destinations.
