ABC Our Country Contest

There’s nothing like finding a bit of home between the pages of a good book. In ABC Our Country, travel from coast to coast – drive up the winding road of a mountainside, stroll through the prairie grassland, or sit by the seashore – and experience how people live very different lives across our nation. In each Tundra classic, you will find alliterative text coupled with dynamic illustrations.

A Big City Alphabet A Mountain Alphabet A Northern Alphabet
A Pioneer Alphabet A Prairie Alphabet A Seaside Alphabet

To celebrate Canada Day, we are giving away one advance set of this re-packaged alphabet series:

Leave a comment telling us your favourite Canadian destination or where you would love to visit in Canada with your name and email address before Sunday, July 5th, 2009. We will be randomly drawing a winner for the book set on Monday, July 6th, 2009. Good luck!
