What better way for a young reader to truly understand another time
than to get an intimate look at the daily life of another child? In
"On a Canadian Day" Rona Arato introduces nine engaging children,
using their stories to place young readers perfectly in nine
pivotal moments in history. The book begins with the story of an
Aboriginal boy on the Great Plains in 1680 as he prepares for his
first buffalo hunt. From there, readers learn about a pioneer
girl's day sugaring off, a boy's journey fleeing to Canada via the
Underground Railroad, and more. Following each story is a photo
essay that explores the era through archival images from the
period. Together, the stories and essays present young readers with
unparalleled snapshots of life in other places and times.
