I really liked this book because there were some surprising things that i didn't know were invented by Canadians i would have given this book a five but I wanted to know some more things that were invented by Canadians.
There was a lot of cool inventions but I wish there was a bit more info.
I only found one one of the story's interesting
Great illustrations, lots of information and I loved learning about my country.
Some debate whether or not the light bulb was actually invented in Canada. Very excited that peanut butter was invented in Canada!! Yay!
I really liked this book and it was so cool how you can learn about who made what. There are some really cool inventions in there. Some inventions make life easier.
