Maid of the Mist
Ontario is the heart of "cosmopolitan" Canada: home province of both Ottawa, the capitol of Canada and Toronto, the biggest city. But there are many other treasures to explore with kids outside the cities: Stratford with its famous theater festival, villages and farming communities, the drama of Niagara Falls and the wilderness of Thunder Bay lake country.

The Incredible Journey
Sheila Burnford

Two dogs – a very old English bull terrier and a dogged young Labrador, plus a Siamese cat journey over three hundred miles in northwestern Ontario to return home. Wonderful descriptions of wildlife – bears, lynx, moose, beaver, porcupine, ducks, farm life in rural areas, and majestic scenery of lakes, rivers and forests. A great read aloud. (Chapter book)


The Red Sash
Jean Pendziwol, Nicolas Debon

It's winter rendezvous at Fort William, when the voyageurs return from their long journey, loaded with furs to trade for supplies. The fort hums with activity, and a young boy and his sister eagerly await the canoes. Wonderful local color, and a fun book to read before you visit Fort William Historical Park in Thunder Bay. (Picture book)
